My Day 4 image for the Five Day Black and White Challenge takes me back a number of years to one of my favorite places in Tucson, AZ, Hi Corbett Field.

Back in the day Hi Corbett was the home of MLB Spring Training in Tucson as well as the home of the Tucson Toros AAA baseball team.  Over the years baseball in Tucson changed and both the spring training and AAA ball moved to a new stadium.  Sadly the new stadium never had the charm or character that Hi Corbett offered and baseball in Tucson declined to where it is almost non-existant now.

Oh yeah, for those that remember the movie Major League, scenes in that movie were filmed at Hi Corbett which was the spring training home of the Cleveland Indians.

Day Three – Five Day Black And White Challenge

The Goat

I actually finished my five day black and white challenge a week ago but have been really behind on getting things posted here on the blog.  The biggest reason for that delay was spending a few days in Arizona for a work trip.  Never fear though, I am back today with my Day Three image.

I have 2 more days of images coming.  I also have some other new images to share that will bring some color back to the blog. :-)

I’m a little behind on getting my 5 Day Black and White Challenge images posted to the blog.  This image, from my archives, is my Day 2 entry and is one of my favorite images.

Day One – Five Day Black and White Challenge

Shooting The Coast

Recently my friend Jay Taylor challenged me to take part in the Five Day Black and White Challenge.  Basically you just share a black and white image each day for five days on Facebook.  I decided to take it a step further and post each days entry to my blog as well.

This image was captured during a recent trip out to the Washington coast with one of my IR converted cameras.

Crazy Circles

At the risk of aging myself, I have always been a fan of the band Bad Company and the song Crazy Circles.  The second I saw this image on my camera’s LCD screen it was the first thing I thought of.  I also rarely use square crops for my images, but it was also one of the first things I thought of when I saw the image.  I think it works well for this image from the Washington State Fair.
