I took a tour of Fenway Park during my visit to Boston this weekend.
The only thing I could think about during the entire tour was how much I wished I worked as a photographer there. Covering the last place Baltimore Orioles day in and day out last year was incredibly exciting. I can’t imagine working in a ballpark that’s nearly 100 years old in a city that goes crazy over their baseball team.
So, instead of listening to most of what our tour guide told us, I took photographs and promised myself that I’ll get there one way or another.
Aerosmith had just played to a sold out Fenway audience the night before, so the grounds crew was working to get the field back into baseball shape. The bustle on the field caught my eye more than The Green Monster, Pesky’s Pole, and the other historic, recognizable parts of the stadium.
I noticed that these two shots are strikingly similar and work well as a pair.
