Night Game

Busch Stadium At Night 1

The tent in yesterday's post was in a parking lot across from Busch Stadium, where the defending baseball champion Cardinals play. The ballpark had a nice glow on the quiet street so I took some snaps in that direction.

Something strange is going on in these pictures. If you look carefully at the right of the first picture and the top of the second, you'll see green dots that are the upside-down mirror image of the bright white lights of the entrance. This must be happening within the elements of the lens, a Canon EF 85mm 1:1.8 prime. If there are any techies out there who can explain it I'd love to know.

Our surprisingly big Mardi Gras season starts today with the dog parade in the Soulard neighborhood. STL DPB will be covering it. Images tomorrow.

I like the 'feel' of the top picture Bob, deserted (except by yourself) after all have gone home. As for the green dots, I'll have to check back later to see if anyone else can offer an explanation!!

I wish my point and shoot would do that.

I see the green dots. Plus, a lot of dust and finger prints. But, after I cleaned my screen, I just saw the dots.

That's peculiar... I'll have to leave it to someone else to explain it.

I love the way the building lighting is set up to illuminate it that way. Nothing too overdone, just right.
