Baseball History


What can I say about Boston? Aside from all the history there, I found the atmosphere to be like most other large American cities I have visited. I was comfortable walking or taking the “T” when I thought the walk was on the long side. My timing on the “T” wasn’t the greatest though – I found myself riding it mostly during rush hour; not the smartest move in the book.

Photo Deets: 1/250, f/8, ISO100. I used my brand new 10-22mm super wide angle lens, which I absolutely LOVE! I’ve never used one before and I find the perspective amazing. I am loving what I can do with this lens and I can say with confidence that I’ll be ignoring my other lenses for a while.

I wish I could’ve taken this photo without anyone in it, but it is Boston. A tour bus had also just unloaded a family of about 10-12 people and they were preparing to cross the street to get to the statue of the “Splendid Splinter” there under the signage. So I snapped away as fast as I could with as few people in the scene as I was allowed. I suppose I could have slowed down the shutter and closed down the aperture, but I was traveling and didn’t have a tripod with me.

Until next time,

Soccer Sunrise


Took this last June, on an early Sunday morning. I used a P&S. I was trying to get the rays coming through the clouds to be more prominent in the photo, but this was about as good as I could get it. It would’ve been nice if I could have gotten the rays, players, and mow lines more centered, but this was a year ago so there’s no way that thought crossed my mind. The fact that I’m thinking about that now shows that I’m learning. Now I just have to start accomplishing.

I still like the photo.

Deets: Canon A620, 1/1250sec., f/2.8, hand held.

Until next time,
