Since baseball has been on my mind all week I thought that I would share this photo today for Throwback Thursday. In 2005 I was living in Iowa as a manager in a factory. We made the pull top lids that you find on your Campbell’s Soup cans. If you look at your lid closely you will see a letter on the tab itself. If is has the letters A-F on it then it was made at the plant that I worked at. I know what you are saying, “That sounds like the most exciting job ever! How could you leave it?” I realized that moments like this were the highlights of my stay in Iowa.
This picture was taken at O’Donnell Stadium in Davenport, Iowa. I really liked how the Centennial Bridge is a feature of the ballpark. This summer I will get to see AT&T Park for the first time with McCovey Cove in right field. This picture is a preview of what I will see there. The only difference is that instead of a cove you have the Mississippi in the background. The beautiful stadium view is not without a price though. This stadium has been closed in the past because of flooding from the great river.
This picture was taken with my Kodak 6330 point and shoot. This was a great camera that I had received the Christmas before. It was impressive to me because of the great colors that I was getting out of it. What I didn’t know was the fact that in some shots the color was a bit much. I actually had to tone this down a bit because the colors were too hot. I applied the HDR Look preset from Matt Kloskowski to give this photo a little punch. That is the extent of the processing done to this photo.
