A Call from the Editor, Peter Van Buren: 

I have always loved photos—not that I think that’s very special. Most people do.

And, I also like taking them. It’s so satisfying when you capture a good one.

Smartphones have been a boon to my hobby because, though they may not be as good as a “real” camera, the newest ones do a fine job in most conditions. Plus, they are almost always with you.

You’ll never get a great shot if your camera’s in the closet.

I’ll bet I’m not alone, so I’m calling out all neighborhood shutter bugs to enter our first Bulletin Photo Contest. The theme is a pretty easy one: Spring.

The photos need to be taken in Baltimore, preferably in the 21217 zip code, and there is a limit of two entries per person. Photos can be from this year or years past.

Please submit them as JPEG files to the Bulletin Editors at by Wednesday, March 23. The editors will select the best examples for inclusion in April’s Bulletin.

Happy snapping.
