I played a lot of baseball growing up, and in my early years, those games took place at George Bourke Park. So there are a lot of memories attached it. I have been back there many times over the past 5 years or so, but it was always to watch baseball. Today I decided to explore the area a little with my camera in hand. I thought it would be fitting to use an older camera of mine as well, the Canon 5D Classic.
I put my newly bought, and favourite lens, the 50mm 1.2. Paired with the 5D it’s definitely not the lightest combo, but I’m used to carrying cameras around all day so it didn’t bother me.
I didn’t really have any particular route planned, I just wandered around. On my photo walks, I don’t really spend too much time on one spot. I usually photograph what captures my eye, and move on. This walk was no different. All in all, I walked fir about 40 minutes.
Not only did I walk around the diamonds, I also navigated the trails in behind, which I hadn’t been to in a long long time. It was great to revisit my old stomping grounds, especially now that I’m much more into photography. If only I took photos when I was 12.
