“Rough Cut” is a loose edit from The Baltimore Sun’s photographic coverage of the National Football League. Fanatic fans, marching bands, cheerleaders and lots of game action are just part of the spectacle that is the NFL. This week photojournalists Kenneth K. Lam, Lloyd Fox, and Gene Sweeney Jr. photographed the Baltimore Ravens 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium.
“Days Remembered,” a recently published picture book by The Baltimore Sun, provides a visual march through history. The images span over a century of photography, taken by The Baltimore Sun staff photographers, starting with the very first picture, published in 1901.

After Michelle Nugent, a half-Filipino-American, took her first trip to the Phillippines and noticed how they got around, she had an idea.
Now a community arts student at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Nugent made a pedicab from an old children’s bike, a wooden chair, a handrail, some PVC pipe and cardboard. She decorated it with recycled paper bags, Coca-Cola cans and soda boxes (and one National Bohemian beer box), potato chip bags and other materials. Her intention with The Pedicab Project is to give people in Baltimore free rides in exchange for stories, which she will record and re-purpose to share with others. To learn more about The Pedicab Project, watch the video below the gallery.
