In May 2014, I was still getting the hang of capturing these black and white infrared images when I drove by Seaside Park and had to stop and take a few shots. I had quickly learned that foliage against blue skies made for a great combination in infrared and this scene before me offered the best of both.
Though the bases had not yet been placed in position, the grandstand at Seaside Park stood perfectly centered in its dark wood color amidst a sea of foliage that shone white in this final image. The grass similarly glowed and was broken up only by the dirt path of the baseball diamond with a nearly black sky broken up by clouds and contrails.
I included two other images from this outing – a close up of the empty scoreboard and a view from behind home plate looking out toward The Avenue.
