The love of the game

For this assignment I decided to have my Nikon tag along with me to Tuesday night’s edition of the Cardinals game against the Cincinnati Reds. Baseball is a nostalgic and romantic experience and I was in search of finding a similar romance in the stands.

Pictured here is a pair of lovers I spotted, framed within the field. There is a gentleness in this picture and a calm notion. Overall, the emotion portrayed is a peaceful love of each other and the game itself. Nothing is quite like an evening spent at the ballpark with a loved one.

I particularly enjoy the backwards hat (brownie points Erik?) on the lady because it places the story in St. Louis and I feel like the use of depth of focus made this for a decent frame. If I could rewind time and re-do something, I would have liked to get a little lower to include his arm around her back. It would have rounded out the image a little more.
