There are few things in baseball more depressing than a once-great stadium left to lie in neglected ruin.

    whoa, very cool

    Thanks.... maybe cool, but very sad.

    I love the colors here. The rust on the window pane dividers, the weathering "whites", and the sky perfectly conveys the stark mood. Awesome work and nicely framed!

    Oh man, yeah, it was the perfect sky for looking at Tiger Stadium... complete cloudy whiteout with sputtering precipitation, hovering somewhere between freezing rain and snow.

    I clicked on the link to the photo with a very similar line in mind, but you beat me to it. Wonderful pic, despite everything...

    There are only so many ways you can say "Baseball, old, abandoned, woe."
  • John McNally PRO 9y

    this is INSANELY good. the lighting. the colors and tones. the sentiment. i'm drooling.
  • Sam 9y

    Crazy stuff happens to the light and to color on cloudy days, 'specially when it's precipitating just enough to play with stray photons.
  • Andrew Morrell PRO 8y

    Terrifically seen - very very sad.
  • Sam 8y

    I really wanted to shoot the "Tiger" bit of the sign... or at least the T... but you could only barely see it from the angle I was at.
