Baltimore's Inner Harbor is a seaport centered at the edge of Downtown Baltimore. The harbor as been around since the 1600's bringing people, ships and goods from all over the world.
The Harbor is a Jewel of the city of Baltimore, since everything is with in walking distance. Once you are there, you start at the corner of the Harbor with shopping, great dining, and a variety of entertaining in every direction right on the waterfront. One of the largest attractions in the area is Camden Yards, Home to the Baltimore Orioles. I think Camden yards can be its own Lomo Location one day.
Now if you want to visit location that is across the harbor or along the harbor, there is the Ed Kane’s Water Taxi. One ticket and you can ride all day. For the folks that are into museums there is the Maryland Science Center, but most cities have theses, and the Baltimore Aquarium which has a fantastic shark exhibit. The Inner Harbor is great place to visit and the area is just very picturesque.

Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
