The back gate at Wrigley

I know I say I try not to post from the same scene back-to-back days, but the subject matter for yesterday and today is so different that it doesn’t bother me so much. This is the right-field corner of Wrigley Field during a game last September. The stadium lights are so bright and create massive unbalance between the lighted and unlighted areas in the street. Your eyes kind of struggle back here against that contrast, so color becomes secondary. I took it out and left this a black & white conversion instead.

    Anita- Welcome back to blogging after your hiatus. I hope you had a good December, and thank you for calling this unique!

    John- I thought it was different, too. I definitely needed the brightest brights and darkest darks to achieve the look.

    Thanks everyone…
