Where is everybody?

I haven't posted any photos in a while. Mostly, it's because I haven't taken any photos lately. That's pretty easy to explain. These, of course, were taken in Baltimore. I was there over the weekend to see the Orioles and a street fair called the Fells Point Festival.
The population of Baltimore is around 700,000. I have no idea where everybody was on Sunday.
The top photo is the famous Inner Harbor, with the USS Constellation and a building they call the World Trade Center at the left. It was early on Sunday morning, so the hordes of tourists hadn't yet descended on the place.
There is a 4-story shopping mall called The Gallery across the street from Harborplace, and I thought the insides were photogenic. The stores weren't open yet, so once again, it looked a little like a ghost town.
The Orioles were playing the Tigers at Camden Yards, and the players might have outnumbered the fans. The biggest cheers of the day came when the Ravens final score was announced. I'm not sure where everybody was, but it was kind of nice to be able to walk up to the ticket window and get a $17 seat to a Major League game without having to bother with Stubhub or one of those online ticket scams. Just like the old days.
