Was assigned to shoot the debauchery that is Halloween in Baltimore on Saturday night.
Luckily the odd October snowstorm and bitter-cold winds didn't stop revelers from doing what they do best when alcohol and costumes are combined.
At first, I was worried when I got out of my car at Fells Point. Bar-hoppers were easily outnumbered ninety-nine to one by Baltimore City police officers. But that quickly changed.
Why I ended up finding some rather funny, and some, well, unpublishable moments for most publications, I did have a lot of fun braving the cold while searching for moments on this assignment.
I tried to shoot the assignment as if I was shooting street photos, but I guess I stand out to those consuming alcohol. I had a lot of moments ruined by the phrase every photographer hates, "Hey, camera dude, take my picture."
Nonetheless, I still found some story-telling images, and on my way to my car, I stumbled across this scene. Couldn't resist the colors, textures and light.
