Baseball on the Block

Pin It
My friend's son wanted me to attend this baseball game a few days ago. I couldn't help but snap a few photos while I was there. However, it makes me wish I'd brought my powerful zoom lens along.

I feel totally validated now. Thank you. I read a tutorial about photographing baseball games where they talked about how to avoid the fence. I thought, really? It's baseball! What would it be without that texture? Also, I'm shooting a DSLR on a shoestring, and someone (wonderful) advised me to buy a body only and a 50mm. I could not. I am going to watch three baseball games tomorrow alone. Went for the 18-270 instead. It's good! It's not a lens for the pros, but it's the one I need most. Will get the 50mm yet. :-) Will have to try that bat angle--love it!

You know that just means you'll need to make sure you're down again someday with your zoom. :-)

Honestly though, I think you captured the evening perfectly. You caught both the fun and the intensity. Your eye for detail and mood are astonishing.

I'm also glad that you captured a moment of that beautiful sunset as you took that picture of him at bat.

Well done once again.

Thanks for staying. I it really meant a lot to him.
You have an amazing skill Mr. Z. Remember to use your powers for good! :)

Ahhh, who doesn't love a good little league baseball game in the summer at dusk? You captured it perfectly my friend!

I don't think you needed your zoom at all! You rocked it out with your 50! Great pictures. I got the exact feel of the game! I love the sunset!

Fantastic pictures! You must be a good influence on these young people since they want you included in their activities! Enjoy your summer!

These photographs are awesome. Ilove the sense of comraderie between the players, and the sense of fun and teammanship. I also really like the colours, and the sense of anticipation as the other team members watch from behind the grill.
