Baltimore Sun  Light and #nofilter photos for all.

Our Darkroom photo blog spent a day in Havre De Grace. Originally called Susquehanna Lower Ferry, the town almost became the capitol of the nation in 1789. #HavreDeGrace #HdG #HarfordCounty #Maryland #lighthouse #ChesapeakeBay #fishing #bridge #boardwalk

Are you the kind of person who tries to #recycle everything? A little pizza grease, a barely used paper towel, they'll still take it, right? Well, you could be doing more harm than good (take our quiz at to learn the dos and don'ts). "#Wishcycling" has thrown off the industry’s economics. Items that aren't recyclable can be expensive to remove and can contaminate other materials and some that are, like glass, aren't that valuable in the first place. Governments have gone from making money off #recycling to spending taxpayer funds to support it.

Photographer @lloyd1fox was tasked with shooting the cover of this year's Beach Guide. These are some outtakes of our cover star, 3-year-old Everly. Lloyd's biggest piece of advice for taking photos of kids: patience. "The window of opportunity comes just after they get comfortable with you taking their picture," he writes. "Don’t miss it."

Anthony Bourdain, the writer, chef and TV personality who died Friday, first encountered Baltimore during the fall of 1983. He was an outsider charged with leading Gianni’s Italian restaurant in the brand new Harborplace.

Bourdain admitted in “Kitchen Confidential,” released in 2000, that his time in Baltimore was riddled with drugs and debauchery — both in the kitchen and at the house where he stayed with other employees in Otterbein. He didn’t stay long, either, later writing that he couldn’t find good drugs in Baltimore. His impression of the city remained soured by the experience.

But traveling and television seem to have changed his perspective.
During his Hippodrome appearance in 2012, Bourdain credited "The Wire" creator David Simon for his view of Baltimore. Bourdain wrote for “Treme,” the HBO series developed by Simon. "I love Baltimore. I don't love it for the reasons you want me to love Baltimore," he said. "I happen to love Baltimore because David Simon taught me to love Baltimore."

@jphotoj was flying the Baltimore Sun drone around a ball field Tuesday evening when a curious fox took an interest.

@rodneysmithjr is traveling to all 50 states to mow lawns for the elderly, disabled, vets, and single moms while encouraging young people to help others in their own communities. He mowed a Maryland yard on Tuesday at a home in Linthicum Heights. (Algerina Perna/Baltimore Sun video) #50states50lawns #50yardchallenge

Residents, merchants, and media were allowed onto Ellicott City's Main Street briefly on Tuesday. The site of Sunday's fatal flooding is closed to the public indefinitely. Authorities confirmed the death of Sgt. Eddison A. Hermond of the Maryland National Guard after finding his body in the Patapsco River just over the Baltimore County line.
