Time has been good to Rick and Doris Graham. Married for over four decades, their livelihood spans four centuries. They sell clocks at their family business, the Maryland Clock Company located in Davidsonville, and repair some timekeepers that date as early as the 1700’s. Graham fixes the clocks and says his wife “does everything else.”

The day in pictures around the world.

The Baltimore Museum of Art recently celebrated its 100th birthday. In addition the museum reopened its American art galleries after a two-year, $7.9 million restoration.

The current museum was designed by John Russell Pope, who also designed the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.
A tree-lined median bisects most of 33rd Street, stretching from the eastern edge of Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood campus all the way to the southwestern edge of Lake Montebello. To the north of 33rd from Old York Road to Ellerslie is Waverly; to the south is Better Waverly. They are two distinct neighborhoods, separated by that median, but connected by signs announcing entry to Waverly Village.

People in Los Angeles, Baltimore, New York, Washington D.C., and even London are protesting the shooting death of Michael Brown and the grand jury not to indict officer Darren Wilson.
Forty-four people were arrested during a second, calmer night of demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri, after a grand jury declined to indict a white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager in August, police said early on Wednesday.
