I live in Baltimore, an old town in decay and reconstruction since it was founded. I love photographing the human environment, especially buildings with a story. My interests include recycled buildings, graffiti, churches, factories, ghost signs, ruins, jails, towers, corporate buildings, theaters, bridges, stores, houses, cemeteries, schools, apartments, bars, gas stations, to name a few. I like pictures that give a sense of place, and I love to do pictures of places that aren't already on Panoramio. I don't like to do postcard shots; I'll buy the postcard instead.

Unfortunately, in early 2013 Polock Johnny's was torn down in order to expand the liquor store next door. So this has become a ghost building picture.

Nice evening shot!

Thank you Avagra, For your kind comment.

Another very interesting building, thanks for sharing!!

It's really neat, i like!!

Of course I went in. But as you can see, it was in the morning and not much was going on.

I grew up next door to that factory in the 40's and 50's. My grandfather was the only white guy who worked there, as a night watchman. I used to make the rounds throughout the factory as a kid with the time clock for him because of his health problems. Mr. Brown, the manager and some of his crew would come to my grandparent's home on Friday night to watch the "Friday night fights".My grandparents lived on the corner of Town and McDowell and could walk out of the house and right in to the B&T across the alley.
