Wild Night of Photography

Last week our San Rafael Pacifics played the Pittsburg Diamonds and in the bottom of the 8th inning, with the bases loaded, a wild pitch got away from the catcher. The Boys in Blue scored one run and ended up winning 4—1.

I slipped down into a vacant Box Seat and, using the Jane Lens/AO BW Film/Apollo Flash combination in the Hipstamatic app, got this photo through the webbing of the backstop fence.

Check out Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge for more photos in this week’s Challenger’s Choice event.

    Great photo, and I agree with Sally that night photography can be a challenge.

      Hi, Angeline. With the advances in the iPhone cameras and the photo apps, mobile photography is getting much better. It is not in the realm of the DSLRs by a long shot, but it is leaps and bounds over where it was just 3 years ago.

      Thanks, Janet. I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.

    Allan, your image is universal, reminding me of the past and the present. Well done, especially because night photography is definitely a CHALLENGE. Happy Photo Challenge.

      Thanks, Sally. I really enjoy working with low-light and night light subjects.
