Baltimore Orioles Photography: Saturday, August 6, 2011 vs. Toronto Blue Jays
Let’s face it: Wins feel much better than losses. After being on the wrong end of a perfect game through five innings, Adam Jones was able to lift the Orioles to a come from behind win. I had a lot of fun shooting this game, not just because of the win, but because of the weather.
Saturday was the first game I’ve been at this season to be delayed by rain, and as you can see, it was quite a storm. As the rain came down, I sat in the Orioles’ dugout, ate sunflower seeds, watched Bugs Bunny cartoons on the scoreboard, and took pictures of the rain – not a bad job I have.
The rain continued off an on throughout the game, so I played around with some different shutter speeds as I sat there in the pit, completely soaked.
This game’s “Thing I Learned:” I should have brought the rain gear out for the cameras.
