Victory Field

Watching the Fireworks Over Victory Field

This year I was able to spend a couple of months shooting some games at Victory Field. It is a great place to photograph some baseball, but my schedule has not really allowed me to make time to get there lately. One shot that I want to try again is this one from the parking garage across the street. I liked the idea of the photo, but I did not have enough time to set up my tripod before the show started. I was hoping to see the Indians get a walk off win in extra innings that night so I stayed in the dugout ready for that to happen. It did not, and the Indians dropped the game. By the time I made my way through the crowd to the garage across the street the display had started. I just made my photos without the tripod as it would have taken too long to set up. I was able to get a couple of shots without it. I like this idea, and would like to blur out the cars a little on the street below. Maybe that can still happen again this summer.

The Week in Photos

Each week I take a few of my favorite shots from the past week and place them on one Exposure page. I like to take a quick look back to see what I have done. It kind of helps me as I keep striving to get better and better. The past few weeks have been a bit different as they have not had any sports photos in them. Two straight four day tournaments combined with my schedule filling with other events have led to a mini sports draught. That will change next week, but for now enjoy some photos of things other than sports. You can view this weeks Exposure page here.
