In any event, the JJ/D-Lowe game was a Sunday day game... overcast, and below 90 degrees (yes!). I sat in section 126R, row 22. (We moved several times... Sunday game + Marlins = move wherever I want.)
I go to the stadium around 11 AM so I could catch Braves BP. My friend Linda, her boyfriend Spencer, and their friend Lee met up with me later. I managed some pretty good shots of Braves BP, and got my first taste of getting caught taking photos of the players. If I didn't feel like a stalker before, I certainly do now. Luckily, I spotted another lady with a lens similar to the one I was using a section over, but closer to the wall (well, ON the wall, really), so I felt a little bit better. [PS--For the record, I am NOT a stalker.]
Linda and company arrived a little bit after the game had started, and the Marlins were already on the board. D-Lowe was having some serious issues. Also, once again, I am a failure at capturing photos of my friends. :P Linda is my HAC sweetie, and we NEVER seem to have photos of any of our outings. Next time, gadget!!
