Take me out to the....

For the second year, I was able to join the Kaufman High School Jazz band for their appearance at a Frisco Roughriders minor league baseball game... fun times for sure.

Finding a good shooting position as a spectator is not so bad at Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco... it is a really fun place to shoot.

I spent most of the game on the first base side, with a nice, low view of home plate...

Of course, timing is still everything. Everything happens a good bit quicker than high school. I would love to have about 1/20 of a second back on this one... when the ball was actually breaking the bat.

The access to walk around the field is great, so shooting over the outfield fences is fun. Kinda lonely out there.



Unfortunately the longest lens I took was the 70-200mm. From the outfield, it made home plate very small. I had to crop a lot and quality is not so good.

The game started at 4 p.m., so part of the band was in bright sun.

By the end of the game, it was nice soft shade... fun light.

Have a great week everyone,

Don J.
