Photo Blogging Challenge (May 2014): Fun
The spring is here … and soon, so will the summer.
For May, out theme was “fun.” Despite not getting out with my main camera, I do have some snaps of fun things I did this month.
Being employed again is a wonderful thing. But, it also cuts into some of that free time I used to have. So when I get home from work, I am not always up for getting out and doing some photography. So, as has been the case for the past few months, I need to rely on the iPhone, which did well for me. I think I captured some of the things that I put in the “fun” category.
What I truly like, though, is that I realize what “fun” is once again. For a while there, I attempted but wasn’t truly having it. Now that I feel I am getting back to where I need to be, I enjoy things much more.
Anyway, without further adieu, here is my five for the month of May.
I got back into this a bit this month and it also included a trip to the ASP Geobash, a mega event a few hours from me. I always enjoyed this event, but haven’t had the ability to do it the past few years. Therefore, it was nice to get there this year. On top of going geocaching, I’ve also had the chance to start placing geocaches. I have a goal of getting to 100 places caches. My profile shows 86 at this moment, but I have four adopted caches, too. So my legit place count is 82. That means 18 more caches to place. I have some ideas that will help that total out, so now it’s just getting it done. Pictured here are a bunch of containers I am working on placing (some already have been placed).
2. Baseball scorekeeping
I love baseball. And on top of that, I love keeping score at games. I’m a bit of a baseball nerd, you could say. When I go to minor league games, I bring my scorebook and this book – Baseball America’s yearly prospect guide. This way, we can look up who we are seeing and circle the ones who might be listed in the top 30 of the organization’s minor league system.
I love good food. And despite now really having to watch my diet, I can still eat good things. This was earlier in the month though — before I had to adapt to something more strict. So good!
4. Bad wrestling
I have friends who are professional wrestlers, and they always seemed to be amazed that I truly enjoy awful wrestling. And it’s not that I like it so much, rather more that it’s quite entertaining to see the train wreck unfold. The local summer college wood-bat league baseball team held a fundraiser at their park with some wrestling. The setup was pretty cool, but the actual action was auction. I can’t complain for $10 though.
Yes, two baseballs on this list. I love the game. I love watching it. And I love trying to find artsy ways of taking photos. This is one from Syracuse. I wanted to get my seat section in with a pitcher warming up. Play ball!
And that’s my five for the month.
