Sunday, April 13: Today, I join an iPhoneography group to mingle in the ranks of pirates ~ Ahoy, matey! ~ at the Privateer Festival in Fells Point, Baltimore. The festival is to kick off the War of 1812 Battle for Baltimore bicentennial year with “sails flying, bombs bursting in air, and a full-scale land invasion of living history, music, dance, kids’ activities, arts, crafts, foods and libations.” The celebration is in honor of Baltimore’s maritime prowess and Fell’s Point’s pivotal role in American history. The festival includes performances by The Pyrates Royale, House of Cadarn, Valhallas Pirates and more.
Every time I join this photography group, I feel like I’m utterly clueless about all the latest iPhone apps used to take pictures. I’m always fumbling about, trying to master the fancy adjustments that the others in the group seem to have mastered so easily. So, with a caveat to my iPhone photography ability, come along, matey, to mingle with the pirates of Fells Point.
After wandering about for quite some time through all the festivities, we all enjoy delicious pizza, after which time I drive back home to northern Virginia. Fun times. 🙂
