America's Pastime. San Francisco, California. May 26, 2009. © Copyright 2009 G Dan Mitchell - all rights reserved.
Baseball fans along the outer walkways of San Francisco Giants' AT&T Park, with scoreboard, commercial messages, and twilight sky.
This photograph comes from a couple of years ago, and is one that I "found" again recently during a scan though a half dozen or so years worth of old files. I tend to be rather cautious about deleting old files, but I finally decided that some of the older files really not worth keeping - and the side benefit of cleaning out some of the photographic cobwebs is that I often rediscover photographs that I had forgotten.
We go to a few San Francisco Giants games every season. While I like the baseball, other things also draw my attention. In addition to the garlic fries and beer (!), AT&T Park also provides a lot of interesting photographic opportunities. At some point during every game I tend to just wander around the facility and see what might make an interesting photograph. Most often I use the elevated vantage points around the park to photograph San Francisco and the Bay, but sometimes I also photograph subjects within the stadium, too.
