Random shots: Baltimore’s Inner Harbor from 40 stories up

2 11 2011

This past spring, Michael and I celebrated our friend Karen’s birthday in Baltimore, accompanied by our friends Paula and Ken. I photographed this view of the Inner Harbor from the observation floor of Baltimore’s tallest skyscraper—the Legg Mason Building. At 528 feet high, it is the tallest building in Maryland. The building in the foreground houses the National Aquarium of Baltimore, located on Pratt Street. It’s most often referred to as the Baltimore Aquarium. The aquarium has a collection of 16,500 specimens representing 600 species. Coastal Living magazine named it the #1 aquarium in the U.S. in 2006 (it really is an amazing place!) The two boats adjacent to the aquarium are the USS Torsk and Lightship 116 Chesapeake.
