Wrigley Rooftops

Across N. Sheffield Ave at the backside of Wrigley, there are several apartment buildings.  Back in the 1980's (I think) when Harry Caray used to broadcast the games, he would likely point out the rooftops of those apartments as there would usually be a couple of guys sitting up there in lawn-chairs with a cooler of beer watching the games.  Over the years it has evolved from lawn chairs on regular flat roofs into stadium seating. You know what happens when there's money to be made, right?! Anyway, the lower half of the picture are the actual bleachers (and the "bleacher bums") in right field of Wrigley, whereas above the signs are the seats and bleachers that are on the different apartment buildings across the street.

I selected the black and white conversion because of the timelessness of black and white.  The shot originally used the classic chrome film simulation from the camera which I therefore converted to black and white in Nik Silver Efex 2.

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