This Baltimore barber is Knowledge!

This is the first in a new series about everyday people who I meet and think have interesting stories.

Today’s person is Charles and he is  a barber in Baltimore but his clients and friends all call him Knowledge.  Get to know him a little better by watching the short video we made where he talks about his passion for barbering.    I learned that there is a lot more to barbering than just cutting hair.

We also shot some pictures as you can see below and I think they came out pretty good.  Hope you agree.

If you are looking for a good barber, check out Knowledge.  He can be reached at 443-751-3062 or by email at

Commenmindz Barbershop & Oasis is located on Woodlawn Drive in Baltimore.               Lonnie Dawkins on Facebook

So what if it is raining, we’re not going anywhere!

Today was a March rainy day here in Maryland and I was tempted to go out in the rain and take pictures knowing that you can get great pictures even when it is raining.  Instead I decided to look through some of my collection and remembered the International Festival that took place in Baltimore a few years ago.
Things were going great when all of a sudden a heavy downpour of rain surprised everyone.  Yea, I ran for cover but then I got my camera out to see what people were going to do.  I was surprised at how many people just continued what they were doing like the ladies who I watched standing in the rain under an umbrella chatting for about a half of an hour.  Some just continued to enjoy the food and activities.  Others decided that it was best to leave.
After a while the sun came out and it was business as usual with a great Ashford and Simpson concert at the end of the day.
