    Damn, your compositions look so nice! Could you tell us some more about it? Even showing more of them would be great ;)

    So is this blog turning into a photolog?

    I agree - Damn!

    Looks like you had really good seats... :)

    It is in danger of becoming a photoblog, isn't it?
    I've three more photos from that game, and a couple from a street fair to come, but I promise I also have some more nonsense writing, and some technical pieces which just need finishing touches added before I can publish them.

    The thing is, the writing takes ages, and when you've busy (as I've been the last week or so) it's hard to get them done. Photos, on the other hand, don't take long at all, and feel much less like hard work :o)

    The writing will return, never fear...

    p.s. I'll also try and include a tutorial on these kinds of photos, as I promised last time.

    We were actually about 10 rows from the very, very top, but I sneaked down to the very front and snapped a few pics.

    I also nearly caught a ball while I was there; I was busy looking through the camera and didn't realise what was happening until the last minute. I got a hand to the ball and pushed it straight up, but before I could get out of my seat to complete the catch, some swine behind me grabbed it :o(

    BTW, I've tried sneaking to the front of the stands at Oakland, San Francisco, and New York, and Oakland is by far the easiest, not a ticket-checker in sight!

    Yay! You still please me every time.

    Your nonsense writing... I was afraid my blogging was turning into just talking about my range and about serious stuff, so I wrote an article/rant about glasses [1] :) Indeed, photos are easier to post, don't need typographical refining. I need more web space!

    Oh, and it's good you're busy. We can't expect from you to always be working on some blog, or what do they call this hype these day?

    And the tutorial would be highly appreciated. You tha man, Dunstan.

    I was getting a bit scared of the lack of writing too. I'm happy this isn't going to be a photo-log!

    Once again, a great composition, wonderful lighting, and nice time-scan thingy. I want more writing though! It doesn't have to be perfect, just as long as it's there.

    Too much red color in photo, isn't it?

    There's nothing wrong with a 1976design turning into half a photolog, as long as there's code and photo tutorials :)

    Great shots by the way, I wonder how you do it.

    If a "blog" is actually a "weblog" then should we be saying something like "phlog" instead of "photolog"? ;-)

    Looks like a long lens was used --> the bullpen pitchers look to be just behind the first base coach when in fact they are fairly far away. Cool photo effects and stuff.
