On this day last year here in Maryland it was freezing and pouring down rain all day. This year, I got a perfect, sunny fall day to celebrate my birthday. 22 years in the books! Hello 23.
Here’s a few more “Around the Grounds” shots that I was assigned to. I’ve been really drawn to shadow and silhouettes so far, likely because I’m on call to shoot as the sun is setting.

Today I had to walk around the ballpark to shoot photographs of some of the various party venues for publication on the Orioles’ ticketing website.
It was pretty mundane work until I got to the press box. I stepped outside to find an absolutely incredible Monday afternoon. Perfect temperature. Perfect breeze. Perfect sky.
So, as I made my rounds, I stopped to take some shots of the stadium and the cityscape from different areas. These are a few from what turned out to be a nice series of images. For some reason, through all these years of coming to games here, I never stopped and actually observed the views the stadium offers. Some of them are incredible, especially on a day like today.

The birds dropped the first of a three-game series against the Detroit Tigers.
I don’t have much to say about this game. These were the only pictures that stood out, and I don’t think they’re anything too special.
This game’s “Thing I Learned:” On Friday nights, I need to lighten my exposure more than I have been while shooting batters. The black jerseys are tougher to work with as it gets darker out.
I shot this dance dress rehearsal last night. I was loving the silhouettes.
And now, time to work on my Senior thesis.
