Well, here we are again. As we wrap up April and look forward to May, I can’t help but be just a liiiittle antsy for things yet to come. Live in the moment, I remind myself, and then I laugh and laugh because who am I kidding? That’s hard to do with you’re living the metaphorical equivalent of needing to pee really badly when the next exit isn’t for another ten miles. (I’ll save the explanation on that one for another time.)
I’m going to keep this month’s photo round-up light on the text and heavy on the images, because I apparently did a lot of snapping in April. These first few shots were just a handful of at least a hundred from one afternoon, which consisted of lots of flipping and jumping in the warm afternoon sun. My favorites are the two where it looks like Elsbeth is levitating:
I can’t get enough of my animal neighbors. How photogenic are these guys? Mikey (the donkey) is the most social donkey I know on a first-name basis. He also happens to be the only donkey I know on a first-name basis.
John and I headed down to Fells Point for Record Store Day, and the Sound Garden was PACKED. There was a line snaking out the door and down the sidewalk, so we walked around for awhile and came back later.
Baltimore’s rowhomes are the best. I love the gorgeous architecture, ugly formstone, and ubiquitous quirks. This Natty Boh (a Baltimore staple, though it’s not brewed here) can seems almost strategically placed:
And did I mention it also happened to be National Pirate Day? Swear to God I saw Captain Jack Sparrow. This guy had the high-quality clothes, eyeliner, and drunken prance to match Johnny Depp’s. One day, I’ll be inconspicuous enough to take pictures of strangers.
And so—amayzingly (get it?)—concludes another month. I’m looking forward to girly weekends with my sisters and BFF/old college roommate, interviews with awesome people on WTH, major spring cleaning, and telling (good) secrets.
How about you? What do you have going on in May?
