P.52 photo challenge: week 17.

This week's theme is green.  Usually Buddy is my subject, and he does have some green shirts I could have him wear, but....
1) visitors might want some variety
2) that's not what comes to mind when I think of green (nature and sports come to mind)
Before I had the wonderful pleasure of taking photos of my baby boy, I spent a lot of time taking photos of nature and sports (ie, baseball).  So for this week, I'm going with good ol' baseball.

I like how the lush green field brings a nice pop of color to the game.  And, it was a big week for White Sox baseball.  Paul Konerko hit his 400th home run and Phil Humber pitched a perfect game.

So - in honor of those two baseball accomplishments, this week's photo is of Paulie and Humber. Taken by me at a game this week.

Phil Humber and Paul Konerko

Congrats to both!

  2. A baseball field was the first thought that came to mind when I saw the theme was green! I especially love how the lines form in the grass when they mow the lawn...great shot!

    1. thanks!! does that mean you used a baseball shot also? I'll take a look at your green themed shot and see! Julie
