A "Model" Fenway Day

    Newer Older

    "People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.
    Rogers Hornsby

    A tilt-shift "Collabo" with the partner in crime in honor of opening week of Baseball season. I was hoping to create the illusion of a replica Fenway Park in the old toy/model format.

      I have recently created a group dedicated to Boston sports teams. I would love it if you became a member and added your photos.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called 100 + Viewed Best Architecture Photos (add 1, award 1), and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      The fake-ness of the photo is obvious because there is no clear line of focus that can be followed from one side of the frame to the other. If this were a real "tilt shift" photo there would be a perfectly sharp area to the left of the stadium.

      Lovely work. Looks like you were really high up - where did you shoot this from?

      "Fenway Park, in Boston, is a lyric little bandbox of a ballpark. Everything is painted green and seems in curiously sharp focus, like the inside of an old-fashioned peeping-type Easter egg." (John Updike, "Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu")

      This is fantastic. I also wanted you to know, in case you don't, that Deadspin.com is using it as a part of an blog post titled, "Why Your Stadium Sucks: Fenway Park". This post was done Friday August 21st.

      This is a fantastic shot of a great ballpark. I hope you don't mind that I used it as a backdrop for a fun photo that I did for the 100 Possibilities group. I have properly credited and linked back to this shot. If not OK, please let me know.
