Nikon D2X

Capture Date/Time: July 27, 2006 22:13
Aperture/Shutter Speed: F/9 - 1/8 sec
Focal Length: 10.5 mm
ISO: 320
Flash: None

This was taken last night on one of the rooftops on Waveland Avenue, just north of Wrigley Field. For those of you who may not know, Wrigley is one of the only baseball parks in the country where you can watch the games from the rooftops of nearby residences. All of the rooftop owners, including this one, have made a very lucrative business out of holding private parties. Most of them have elaborate bleacher structures built up there to make the view even better. (You can see similar structures on the rooftops over right field). This is a great way to watch a game.

** You may have noticed that the archived shots are mis-aligned with the old template. I am still in the long and tedious process of up-rezzing all 320 of the previous MRB shots. Once those are all done I'll be able to upgrade the entire site. Right now it's only the homepage that uses the new template. Thanks for your patience as I continue the upgrades to the site.

That is way too cool! What a perfect way to spend a summer's evening! I would do that as often as possible.

Awesome Mike. A couple weeks ago I went to my first professional baseball game ever and I was sitting along the 3rd baseline right near the field here at Wrigley. It took me a while to notice that the bleachers outside the stadium were not actually part of the stadium. I thought that was the coolest thing. Thanks for sharing this perspective!!
