Baltimore Cemetery


THREE LAYERS OF BALTIMORE

Another great Baltimore skyline view can be had from the east end of North Avenue in the Baltimore Cemetery. I psychedelicized (see footnote) the photo above to show a contrast between the three layers of Baltimore - gravestones, neighborhoods and downtown. I'll spare you the deep profound metaphorical significance to that, except to point out that the American Brewery to the right side of the picture is a bridge between the middle neighborhood and background downtown layers.

Someone who actually knows something about photography can no doubt improve upon what I've done here.
Footnote: My spellcheck doesn't recognize the word "psychedelicized" but anyone familiar with the Chambers Brothers' "Time Has Come Today" knows it is a genuine word, or at least it was in the mid-1960s. 23 Skidoo and Tyler too.
