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.
The following 13 photos are a sampling from the first 3 months of Baltimore 365. Among the diverse topics covered so far, the winter of 2012 saw unseasonably warm weather, the ups and downs of the Ravens, Orioles spring training and Elvis’s Birthday Fight Club.
