More Camden Yards photos

The fine folks over at Welcome to Baltimore, Hon invited me to shoot for their Daily Camden feature again. I shot photos on Sunday, although they haven’t been posted yet.

The Daily Camden is like a collaborative, community art project. Each day, a person takes a picture at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

I had the fortune of shooting during Sunday’s game against the New York Yankees. There was a great crowd (although too many Yankees fans!) and plenty of drama on the field.

I had so many photos, it was difficult to pick just three to send over to the website. I shot something like 200 photos, and here are the best ones.

I appreciate the behind-the-scenes people who make the games happen -- like this camera guy in left field who has worked every game I've attended this year.
O's center fielder Adam Jones and Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson chat before the game -- a game the O's won in dramatic fashion in 11 innings. Luke Scott and Ty Wigginton were the big offensive heroes, but Jones also contributed by laying down a nice bunt to drive in Brian Roberts in the bottom of the first.
Nice crowd on Eutaw Street before the O's-Yankees game. But why isn't there more orange?
Right fielder Nick Markakis makes a nice catch in front of center fielder Adam Jones during the O's dramatic 4-3 win over the Yankees.
O's left fielder Corey Patterson takes a rest between pitches, as Jorge Posada works the count full and then walks during the fourth inning. Ultimately, the O's prevailed and won 4-3 in 11 innings.
This photo is my shout-out to the hardworking journalists and broadcasters in the press box. Covering a baseball season is brutal, and we've got some great folks in the media keeping us informed of everything going on with our beloved birds.
Some Baltimore fans watch the end of the Ravens-Bengals game in the club level of Oriole Park at Camden Yards. It turns out the O's had a much better ending, beating the Yankees 4-3 in 11 innings. The Ravens lost, 15-10.
One of my favorite parts of Orioles games is when they have a youngster change second base. I always cheer loudly for the kid. What fun that must be!
The Yankees fans were loud during Sunday's game, but O's fans all of a sudden got super-loud. I looked over the railing and saw this young O's fan in the left field lower deck seats. How awesome!

And, lastly, I leave you with one more Orioles-related photo. This one wouldn’t qualify for The Daily Camden because it wasn’t actually taken at the stadium, it was taken on the Light Rail train. But I hope you like it anyway.

We had to leave the Orioles game before it was over, as we had people coming over at 5:30. (I know! First time EVER I've left a baseball game early of my own volition.) So we listened to the broadcast of the game on the iPhone. Good thing I had a set of earbud headphones in my camera bag.
