my sister captured this stadium reflection in my glasses

although they lost this game, the season has been their best in years

it's been a very long time since the O's have made fans smile - enjoying the ride while it lasts!

 

Macro Monday theme: make me smile

Monday was opening day for the baseball season (this shot was taken last summer). After two days of pouring rain/sleet/snow (4 inches which would have been 2 feet of snow!), today was sunny and 60, a great day ending in a 2-1 win over the Boston Redsox!

We went to an Orioles Baseball game last night. The rain caused a 3 hour delay, but we finally got to see the game - that went well into the wee hours of the next morning. Unfortunately, the Orioles lost, but it was still a great time at Camden Yards. I managed to shoot this stadium scene between raindrops with my X100.

  

This historic B&O railroad station is a fantastic backdrop for all the fun memorabilia!

Emerson Tower often referenced as Emerson Bromo-Seltzer Tower is a 15-story, 88 m (289 ft) skyscraper erected in 1911 at the corner of Eutaw and Lombard Streets in Baltimore, Maryland, designed by Joseph Evans Sperry for Bromo-Seltzer inventor "Captain" Isaac E. Emerson.[5]

 

It was the tallest building in Baltimore from 1911 until 1923.[6] The design of the tower along with the original factory building at its base was inspired by the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy, which was seen by Emerson during a tour of Europe in 1900.[7] Systems engineering for the building's original design was completed by Henry Adams. The factory was demolished in 1969 and replaced with a firehouse.[6]

 

The building features four clock faces adorning the tower's 15th floor on the North, South, East and West sides. Installed by the Seth Thomas Clock Company at an original cost of US$3,965, they are made of translucent white glass and feature the letters B-R-O-M-O S-E-L-T-Z-E-R, with the Roman numerals being less prominent. The dials, which are illuminated at night with mercury-vapor lamps, are 24 feet (7.3 metres) in diameter, and the minute and hour hands approximately 12 and 10 feet (3.7 and 3.0 metres) in length respectively. Originally driven by weights, the moving parts are now electrically powered.[6]

 

The tower originally had a 51 ft (16 m) Bromo-Seltzer bottle,[8][9] glowing blue and rotating. Weighing 20 tons (18.1 tonnes), it was lined with 314 incandescent light bulbs and topped with a crown.[6] The bottle was removed in 1936 because of structural concerns.

 

The tower was virtually abandoned in 2002, but in early 2007 the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts began renovations to transform the building into 33 artists' studios. The Baltimore Fire Department's John F. Steadman Fire Station, which opened in 1973 and is situated at the tower's base, houses BCFD Hazmat 1, Airflex 1, Medic1, Medic 23, MAC23, Engine 23, Rescue 1, and formerly Truck 2.[9][10]

 

The Emerson Bromo-Seltzer Tower was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1] It is included within the Baltimore National Heritage Area.

I couldn't resist stealing a picture of this cutie. She turned her head just as I took the shot, but I love the stadium bokeh.

With Tuesday's win the Orioles are AL East Champions for the first time since 1997. What a great continuation of the Orioles 60th year celebration this season.

We had a great evening out watching the Orioles play the Mariners at the Camden Yards Stadium in Baltimore the other night. The Orioles lost, but it was still a fun night out!

 

I just got back from another amazing baseball trip where I was able to check off two more MLB ballparks off the list, Nationals Park in Washington D.C. and Oriole Park in Baltimore. When I visit a new baseball stadium, I look for an area high and directly behind home plate to get a nice overview photo at some point during the game using a ultra-wide or fisheye lens. One thing I'm noticing is depending on the layout of each stadium, and whether access to a location directly behind home plate is possible, some stadiums work better than others for this type of shot. Many just don't work with photos looking wonky and off-balance. Oriole Park at Camden Yards - one of the nicest stadiums I have visited by the way - really lends itself well to this wide, fisheyes overview.

 

This particular game was a lot of fun. After seeing my San Francisco Giants have an epic collapse and blow a 6-2 lead and lose 14-6 in Washington on Sunday, I found Monday's game in Baltimore to be a lot more enjoyable. The Orioles played long-ball, hitting 5 home runs: two in the 3rd (back-to-back) and three in the 5th (back-to-back-to-back). I had never seen anything like it.

finally decided to check out the Geppi's Museum

Oriole's Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore is my favorite baseball stadium. The food there is great and there is not a bad seat in the stadium. All this and the Oriole's won the game too!

  

Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland, is one of my favorite baseball stadiums. There was a rain delay and the Orioles lost to the Red Sox, but it was still a great day out at the ballpark!

Had a fun afternoon in downtown Baltimore with fellow Flickrites Kat & Karol. We had no idea when we planned to meet down around Camden Yards that we would be in the epicenter of this colorful race.

it was a bonus photo op for sure!!

The Baltimore Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers 4-2 just before the storm moved in, but the clouds did look like it could have caused a rain delay. It sprinkled at the game, but it was just enough to cool us off. All in all, it was a great game today at Camden Yards!

they just now completed a three game sweep of Detroit to advance to the AL Championship series

Garrison Forest School had a special night at Camden Yards on the second night of the season. Through some very nice connections, we were able to give our Head of School, who is retiring after 20 years, a night in his honor (he is also a die hard Red Sox fan who was the opponent that night). He threw out the first pitch and our Chamber Choir sang the National Anthem, with about 500 screaming Garrison fans among the crowd.

 

It was very difficult to get any shots without heads in the way. So on this one, I decided to make heads the subject.

With the Ravens win last weekend, it meant at least one more week to slide some fun purple.

Downtown is awash in buildings lit with purple lights. Since I never seem to get down there at night to take any pics, I have to make my own. Happy Sliders Sunday & go Ravens!!

 

UPDATE: Ravens 28 - Patriots 13

going to the SUPER BOWL!!

I went to the Orioles game on Saturday night, the next to last home game of the season. The sunset hitting the warehouse right before game time was spectacular. This is SOOC.

 

On Sunday, after sweeping the Redsox, they clinched a spot in the playoffs for the first time in 15 years!!!

I'm excited to be going down to the Oriole game tonight. (These shots were taken back in April on the second night of the season.) The Orioles can clinch first place in the AL East if they win tonight. Two years ago they had their first winning season since 1997 and made the playoffs as a wild card team. They currently have an 11 1/2 game lead in the division so if they don't clinch tonight, it will be soon.

The baseball game at Camden Yards had a couple of rain delays, but it gave me an opportunity to catch some shots of the sunset. The Orioles lost to the Red Sox 0-1, but I still enjoyed watching the game.

 

this wonderful old train station bench sits inside the Maryland Sports Legends Museum

you have to go through the SLM lobby to get to Geppi's Museum

both museums are situated in the old Camden Station of the B&O Railroad

Happy Bench Monday!

The crushing heat wave this week meant that my trip to Baltimore and DC was spent mostly indoors. I did get out to see an Orioles game though. This is the one shot I liked that I got from my spot in the stands.
