About Fort McHenry .net
Fortifications and the defense of one’s country have fascinated people throughout all of history. Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine is steeped in the history of the defense of the United States of America. There are likely gazillions of pictures taken in and around Fort McHenry every year. However, most of those pictures are little more than snapshots. There are also many experienced photographers who produce fine art photographs of some of our “favorite” subjects. I am one of those photographers and am building this site with photographs of “the fort” for your viewing pleasure.
The images being shared here are small samples of large, archival quality art pieces available in my online gallery at Bill Swartwout Photography. I photograph a variety of subjects and sell many of those prints to people all over. But I also have a fondness for Fort McHenry, Baltimore, the Patapsco River and the Chesapeake Bay and will continue to share photos here that are so related.
Please note that this site is not related in any way to the actual Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine in Baltimore, Maryland.
