Green Mount Cemetery

Yesterday I went downtown to take the CTA workshop and test. I'm sure I passed. On the way home, I stopped at the studio to drop some more stuff off and then rode over to Green Mount Cemetery to take some pictures. It's about 3 blocks away from the studio. (this blog updated 11/11/09)

Green Mount is a historical cemetery, established in 1839 as one of the first rural cemeteries in the country. It is part of the National Registry with many famous people buried there. It is a world all by itself and is peaceful and rather beautiful and the statuary and monument artwork is magnificent. I walked around and explored for about an hour and here are a few images. The groundskeeper said the cemetery likes getting pictures but they want something different - so I over processed some images and here are a few. We'll see what they say. Here' a Wikipedia article about Green Mount.  I plan on going back.

Just signed a lease on a studio - Yeah

I just signed a lease for a studio with another photographer.  It's 1500 sq ft in the Cork Factory, the place Kristie & I toured a few weeks ago. I added a photo from the tour of our future office space and classy urban decay smaller studio - the old residents were still there getting ready to move out. Photos of the larger empty studio space coming soon. The main studio is on the other side of the wall and is twice the size of the office side and will be more formal and traditional. The studio is on the 5th floor of the Cork Factory in the Station North Arts District of Baltimore City and the. Now we have to move most studio equipment from our home studios, We can't wait to get the studios set up and to start shooting. YES
