As my time at The Baltimore Sun comes to a close, I was asked to encapsulate the 30 years (half my life) in a few paragraphs – which is impossible. If added together, I’ve spent years at a variety of stadiums, arenas and gyms around the country, with an up-close view of sports history. I’ve covered World Series, Super Bowls, Final Fours, Stanley Cup Finals, etc., and I’ve been paid to be there — what a job! My career in Baltimore lasted longer then Cal Ripken Jr.’s, and I have thousands of photos to prove it.
The brainchild of The Sun’s Entertainment Content Editor Amanda Krotki, Baltimore 365* sprang forth in 2012 as a visual chronicle of a year in the life of our city. With our keen collective eye on local news, we began posting visually stimulating photos that best exemplified that day in Baltimore.
Here are 15 photos selected to represent Baltimore 365 during the months of April, May and June. Topics include Kegasus and UniCarl at Preakness Infieldfest, playful dolphins at the National Aquarium, the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels and a fire eater with 5,000 tattoos at Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
Aerobatics at its finest, the Blue Angels soared high during Star-Spangled Sailabration festivities in Baltimore.
