The upside of an economic downturn is having vast spaces at one's disposal for film production. Hidden Baltimore revealed itself in unexpected ways last week. Lucky to be a part of a commercials shoot (downtown and the environs), which gave me access to places normally kept under wraps. Like the Havisham-esque Brass Elephant, a once glittering and opulent hotspot which shuttered its elaborate doors a few years ago and has been a frozen time-capsule ever since. Here are a few clandestine photographs I managed to sneak in without disturbing the action...
