Take me out to the ball game

It's time for baseball. Why do I know this? Because my boss at work is a long-time Giants fan who took the day off for the Giants' Opening Day last week and by the time I'm commuting home on Caltrain now, I'm surrounded by Giants fans left and right. While orange is not my favorite color and baseball is not exactly a sport I'm interested in, Rosemary Alonso from Oakland (simply known as RosemaryAlonso on Etsy) does capture my interest with her black and white photography.

The contrast in her photography is striking from the dark stitches of the baseball to the way the sun shines to brighten up a few of the dirty spheres behind bars. The angle of the shot reminds me of the masses of Giants fans that gather on the train platforms anxiously waiting — in the same way, the baseballs are piled one on top of another, seemingly endless, waiting to be used again.

Available in three sizes (4x6, 5x7, and 8x10), Rosemary's prints are made to order and take a little time to process (so be patient, her work is worth it!). Between the three sizes that she offers, they all fit snuggly in standard photo frames and would be a great gift for a real baseball (or photography) fan. She signs all of her prints and ships them lined in plastic in a sturdy cardboard mailer for protection so you'll receive the print safely. While her listing is specifically for an unframed glossy print, if you have particular photo preferences, go on and send her a message! She takes special requests from color to paper choice (matte or glossy), size, shipping preferences, and framing options.
