Bryant At Bat

It only makes sense to post a picture from the Cubs game we went to since the Cubs are now in the playoffs.  This shot here shows last year's National League Rookie of the Year and 2015 All Star, Kris Bryant batting against the St Louis Cardinals.  The kid is awesome and is a big reason the Cubs have the best record in baseball.  Let's hope they can break the curse this year and win the series!

We love going to these old ball parks.  There's an intimacy, history and character to them that you just can't get at the newer ballparks, even if the new ones are so fan-friendly.  Baseball is a sport that just seems to be better played and watched in these old stadiums.  You can sort of feel the ghosts of baseball-past while sitting in the seats wondering what it must've been like 100 years ago.  Drinking a beer and eating a hot dog and shelled peanuts is a great way to spend a Friday afternoon.  Ferris Bueller knew what he was doing when he skipped school.

As far as the technical side of this shot goes, this is straight from the Fuji using the classic chrome setting with only a little spot healing from the Photoshop Fix app on the iPad.  Otherwise, this is straight from the camera!

I hope enjoy the photo and thanks for dropping by.  As always, click here to see the high-res version of the final image.

Last but not least, Go Cubs Go!!!

PS., Cubs won this game 5-0 on a strong outing by Jake Arrieta.
