Wide Baseball

June 27, 2011

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.

There was a respectable Sutro painted on the side of the kids mini-baseball diamond:


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

    Great pics and, more importantly, excellent parenting! Teach them well.

    Do you know that the slides at AT&T Park are open for free to the public on days when the Giants are on the road? From their website:

    When the team is out of town the Coca-Cola Fan Lot is open during these days/hours:
    September through May: Saturday & Sunday – 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
    June, July, August: Daily – 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

    Enter through the gate closest to the slides at the S/E corner of the ballpark.
