Friday Night at the Ballpark by maxlake2 Friday Night at the Ballpark by maxlake2
Tonight at Oriole Park at Camden Yards (American baseball stadium)
Baltimore, Maryland

Final score: Baltimore Orioles 3 - New York Yankees 2 (10 innings)
Go Orioles!!!

I rarely ever post photos like this.  However, the simple point of the photo is to show that an iPhone camera can be used for things other than a bathroom "selfie."  And I really suck at phone photos!  Really. :nod:   Taken on "panoramic mode."

Soon this will go to Scraps, after I feel that I've made my point. ;)

Well, we're just happy to be out of last place!  This is unfamiliar altitude for Baltimoreans under the age of 40. :laughing:

Thanks, Brian! :)
This was in a "club" section (mezzanine) near the right field foul pole.  They've installed these little, low bar stools with a countertop, sort of like the Monster seats, only fewer of them.  Remember Janet Marie Smith, mother of Camden Yards?  She's the one Sox fans can thank for breathing life back into Fenway.  If I'm not mistaken, she was the big architectural proponent of the Monster seats.  (if I am mistaken, please let me know)  This was one of her little touches in her re-visit to Camden Yards.
Have you seen the Jeter farewell tour in-person yet?
:)

It's good!  And it's of baseball, so it's an instant winner.  I'm terrible at cell phone photos too, and I can't figure out how to do the panoramic thing, so well done : )

I need an orange pompom for on top of my head. It might bring good luck. I wear a purple pompom during Ravens games when needed.  Do you think I'm nuts yet? :rofl: :D

Great photo, great score! F-ing Yankees! iPhone is a good tool, but it takes an artist to make a terrific shot. :)  What a pretty stadium!

Thanks so much!  It's almost hard to hate the Yankees this year, because they're a shell of their former selves.  But it's always fun to beat them! :D
Yes, Camden Yards, which opened in 1992, has been the template for virtually every new baseball stadium design ever since (including minor league ballparks).

Well, thanks, as always, Manon! :aww:  I was a little surprised myself as to how this turned out.  I doubt that I'll keep it, but I might.
I have only one (1) other iPhone picture in my Gallery.  Do you think you can find it without looking at the EXIF data?
Hint:  It's on the 1st page of my full Gallery! ;)
