This game was so slow for the Orioles that I ended up only saving about 50 images total. There was essentially no action to shoot whatsoever, so I fooled around a bit and shot some things that I normally don’t. 

This frame of Markakis is nothing special, but visually, it’s the most exciting thing I got from the night. I also wanted to post it to prove that I didn’t just take pictures of fans all game. 

I got lucky, though, and caught a few nice moments with kids sitting in sections near the outside first base photo pit. 

This game’s “Thing I Learned:” It’s important to remember that there’s a lot going on besides what’s happening on the field. It doesn’t hurt to look behind you from time to time.
