Baseball, an All-American pastime.

Here a couple years ago,
I caught Seattle’s Safeco Field at sunset.
At the time I was standing on the 12 Avenue South bridge overpassing the heavily traveled
western terminus of Interstate 90.
: : :
When vehicles (especially a Metro bus) would traverse the bridge it would flex underfoot,
and for someone (moi) with an overwhelming fear of heights,
making standing on it with a camera on a tripod a white-knuckle experience!
: : :
The glowing white letters on the stadium contrasting with the rich,
variegated pinks of the sunset behind the Olympic Mountains to the west across Elliott Bay
and the ridge which is West Seattle beyond,
makes a captivating scene.

Safeco Field is the stadium where our Seattle Mariners play professional baseball.
I haven’t been to a game in years.
It is simply too expensive for a casual outing.
: : :
I am still not getting out much for my photography,
but have seriously considered getting up before dawn several times this past week.
I think I’m just about there, just about ‘normal.’
Whatever that means.
Isn’t normal just a setting on your washer and dryer??
I’m looking forward to my early forays into the waking city and growing light of early day,
where one quickly learns ‘It’s all about the light!’
