My Maryland – Day One (Of a Casual Series)
Moving to back to the DC area from Massachusetts last August brought about a whole host of changes in my life. On a more fundamental level, New England and the DC area are quite a bit different from each other – the landscape, the people and the weather, just to name a few. As a newspaper photographer having grown a bit frustrated with the daily routine of assignment work, I began to look for some other outlet for my passion of photography. Like many other people in my business, mobile phone cameras have allowed us (and everyone else for that matter) a more simple way of conveying our world through still images while not having to get too caught up in f-stops, lens choice, etc.
These photographs – taken in Rockville and Dickerson, respectively – are an introduction to a casual series of images of my wanderings around the Old Line State, Maryland, my somewhat new home. It is my hope that the only uniformity will be the fact that they were shot in the same state. I don’t want to put any hard or fast rules behind this and just want to have fun with it. I hope you enjoy and would of course love feedback and comments. Thanks!
