Columbia-based Merkle is adding jobs at a breakneck pace — 200 this year and hundreds more in the past few years, during a time when many employers have held the line or cut back. Total workforce: 1,500. That's a heck of a change since chief executive David Williams bought the marketing company in 1988 and became employee No. 24. Williams, 48, had no marketing background when he leaped from a stock brokerage into entrepreneurship in his mid-20s. He simply wanted to run his own company, and Merkle was available.

My husband and I live in Baltimore and last fall we took a cruise to Bermuda. While touring the island, we climbed the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse. Built in 1844, it is the oldest cast-iron lighthouse in the world. Standing 117-feet tall, it offered an unparalleled view of the island and its distinctive architecture. This shot was captured 185-steps later amidst brisk winds along the gallery. The Baltimore Sun welcomes submissions for "My Best Shot." Photos should have been taken within the past year and be accompanied by a description of when and where you took the picture and your name, address and phone number.
