The photos are in black and white, but be sure that everyone was in green. Take a peek into The Baltimore Sun’s archives, with a selection of photos from St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Baltimore through the decades.
The Baltimore Sun hosted its seventh annual Mobbies awards on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2015 at Creative Alliance in Baltimore.
The Baltimore Sun has a rich history of photojournalism, employing a long line of award-winning photographers. One of the most notable photographers through the years has been A. Aubrey Bodine. A man known for his prickly personality, Bodine’s traits were only outdone by his beautiful photography.
From 1927-1970, Bodine’s pictorialist style earned him numerous awards and a worldwide reputation. In 1965, he had a show in Moscow that was the first exchange of one-man photography exhibits between the U.S. and Russia. In a 1949 contest by the magazine “Popular Photography,” Bodine’s picture of a Choptank oyster dredger was selected as first prize for best black and white photography, beating out more than 51,000 entries. He received a $5,000 savings bond for the award.
He was notoriously exacting, drawing on everything from seasonal light patterns to tidal charts to choose the right moments to shoot. He was fanatical, driving 30,000 miles a year in his car and dropping everything if he saw a good scene.
Bodine passed away on Oct. 28, 1970 after suffering a stroke in his darkroom.
We’re trying something a little different on The Baltimore Sun Facebook page. We accepted readers’ photo submissions all of last week, and we’ve picked out the top 5. This week, we’re asking readers to vote from among those for the photo that will become our cover for one month.
The top five selections were made by consensus among several newsroom staff based on content, composition, quality of light and ability to fit within the Facebook cover framework (851px by 315px).
But since we had many more great submissions than just The Chosen Five, we wanted to give all a moment in the spotlight. And here they are…

By several measures, Remington’s renaissance seems real. A decade of steady movement into the neighborhood, by businesses and residents, has changed the landscape and attracted visitors who can easily name popular spots: cocktail bar W.C. Harlan on West 23rd Street, bakery and cafe Sweet 27 on West 27th Street, and, on North Howard Street at the border of Charles Village, the coffee shop Charmington’s.
Baltimore Sun photographers strive to capture moments in time that evoke a response from the viewer. Whether you chuckle at the young lad who listens for a superhero message, or you feel the emotional anticipation of a woman due to take her first steps since falling victim to a bombing attack, the photographers give their readers both artistry and story-telling pictures that communicate universal truths; the agony and ecstasy of sports, the style of high fashion, the consoling hug of a caretaker at a homeless shelter. As 2013 comes to a close, take a moment to enjoy these 100 images and the messages they convey.
