Ball Game and A Carnival




While in San Francisco, California we attended a major league baseball game: the SF Giants vs. the Baltimore Orioles (Giants won 6-3).  The stadium was built right next to the sea.  We were lucky enough to see a home-run hit make it to the ocean.  Did you know baseballs float?  

After the game we hit up the The Giants County Fair and rode some classic rides.  One of my all-time-favorite carnival rides is "the zipper".  It makes me scream, laugh, and want to throw up.  Does a ride get better than that?  I don't think so.

It's been too long since I've been on a roller coaster, carousel or the like, and these pictures make me miss it :)

No, I don't think a ride can get much better than that! My friend is moving to San Francisco, it looks like it's a fun city she'll be living in.

I did not know baseballs float! Haha...I guess I've never really thought about it. How cool that they could hit a home run in to the ocean :)

OMG...the last time I was on a zipper I thought I was going to throw UP! I felt sooooo awful spinning around so fast! I just wanted it to stop haha. I love rides and I've been skydiving, but that ride seriously kicked my butt.

i love the color of this photos.
I've never uploaded a few games as well, because I'm afraid of heights. But your photos make me want to climb. I hope not to pass this year and go to an amusement park.

I would love to see a live game of baseball one day. We don't really play it much down here. We're all about cricket and rugby.

Do you use any special effects on your photos? What camera do you use? I love your photos.
