Took Taquita Justice to the baseball game. She’s now in love with Lou Seal.
She has also realized that by yelling “Go Giants Go” she can get lots of people around her to do the same. (She does throw in an occasional “Go Canucks Go” for good measure.)
Anyway, some fun with the new iPhoto zoom lens and panorama software (AutoStitch). Click images to zoom in for 10,000 pixels of sunny baseball — managed to capture some remarkable detail.
Interesting fringing – the lens is pretty good, but a little chromatic aberration brought on by way the iPhone camera scans and my wobbly hands. Also some unintentionally creative ghosting of the pitcher, batter and shortshop (just think of it as a field of dreams kind of thing).
Here’s the uncropped original, btw — proof that I can’t hold an iPhone steady with a zoom lens while also wrangling a 2.83 year old.
Anyway, thank god for those slides under the giant coke bottle. Looks like we’ll be sitting in the bleachers for a couple of years.

And not one but TWO seagulls photobombed my efforts at taking foggy real-Sutro shots from the parking lot:
