Miscellaneous observations from an educational communicator’s perspective

An eye on Baltimore I stumbled on the work of Baltimore photographer, Patrick Joust, while browsing images on Flickr. His subjects—whether shot in eerie evening light or the glare of the summer sun—capture the city in fresh, unexpected ways. Everyday scenes are small revelations: a neatly suited man glances down the street as he opens a car door, a girl wraps her arms inside a hula hoop at a street festival, phantom cars leave streaks of light on a deserted street. Photos like these are not casual observations. They are the rewards for perfecting the craft, waiting for the right moment, and loving the subject matter. Joust’s work is a wonderful reminder that you have to love what you do before you can expect anyone else to. You can find more of his work here.
