Argh!! I got boned on the Yankees ticket I was promised. Got my money back, but argh. Looking for a single ticket in the main part of the stadium was NOT fun. Cheapest I could find at a reputable dealer with a guarantee was $275 and that is in the upper tier. I just got BENT for a cheap seat.
Oh well...once in a lifetime event and all that. My only hope is that I can make an image of Yankee Stadium as good as the one I made of Dodger Stadium and sell it like a mofo to all the crazed Yankees fans that miss The House that Ruth Built after its gone.
So the plan is to head out on the 13th to Boston, spend the night, take the ballpark tour at 9am sharp next morning, then see the game that night (right field box 3). Scoot out early next morning to JFK and train it to my hotel to drop my travel bag off and get changed, head out to Central Park to do some shooting (want to see about getting to St. Patrick's), then to the game that night. Out early next morning back to BUR.
It's gonna be a whirlwind, but it should be fun. Pics to come!
If you want one, you'll get the same LGK discount as last time! ;)
Remember to wear your Kobe jersey in Boston!
This is just the median exposure in a series of five that I took to make an HDR out of. Should turn out good when I get back home and process them all.
Fenway was the ****, yo. Took the tour and saw the ballgame. It was over after the 8-run third inning that the Sox had, but it was still neat.
More on that later. Right now, I'm having some difficulty getting out of BOS to JFK. This could end up really sucking arse. Might have to go to LGA or Newark instead and cab it up.
Well, I made it. Had to jumpseat on American Eagle from BOS to LGA. Worked out well, though that little EMB-135 is an uncomfortable airplane for a guy as tall as I am.
Then I almost died like 1000 times on the van ride to the hotel through the streets of NYC.
Gotta figure out what I'm going to take with me. They won't let me into the stadium with my camera bag, so I've gotta travel light. Looks like it'll be three lenses stuffed into my photographer's vest. Whee.
