A Rainy Night at the Ballpark By Sonny Portacio

Best viewed in Landscape orientation

My friend, Brent, invited me to join him to watch the San Diego Padres play at the Ballpark. As usual, I brought along my lightweight, mirrorless cameras to see what I could capture.

As we arrived it was apparent that it was going to be a rainy night. What started as a drizzle slowly grew and I wondered what kind of images I might be able to get that night.

Turns out, from a photographic perspective, the rain was a very very good thing. It made everything sparkle and surfaces were reflective and shiny!

Because of the rain, the park was less crowded than usual. When we first got inside the park, they had a big white tarp on the field and rumor was that there was a chance that the game would be called (off) because of the rain.

During this period of uncertainty, Brent and I wandered through the ballpark. This was an excellent opportunity to capture some cool images while we waited on the decision.

Will the game go on?

Lots to see and photo while we wait

The game hadn't started but I was having a BLAST getting shots of the ballpark on the rainy night.

Using small lightweight mirrorless cameras made it easy to move discreetly through the crowd and around the ballpark.

A very rainy night

THE GAME IS ON!

Although the game had started, we continued to walk around the park capturing and collecting images and photos!
