Rukert Terminals Building, Fells Point, Baltimore

Photo taken in Fells Point, Baltimore, MD back in February 2010.  You can’t tell but Maryland had just survived back to back blizzards, and this afternoon was in a lot of ways my first trip “out” in a few weekends.  The occasion was the Baltimore Photo Collective February Photo Walk, and it was a great afternoon to have a camera.

I like this photo for a few reasons.  First I love to photograph brick against sky.  I like the way the red/orange looks against a soft blue background.  And second I love the shadow caused by the late afternoon sun.  I also like the “old” look to the Rukert painted billboard.  I am unsure if this is truly a historic sign, or a modern rendition of an old style of advertising.  A Google search lists Rukert as a Baltimore based self storage corporation.  If anyone knows, please let me know so that I can update my post.
