52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

43. Row One

1 Comment

Yesterday I went to a spring training baseball game at Bradenton’s McKechnie Field. I had already decided before I left the house that I would try and take a photo to fit my “Row One” theme. I was sure that the photo would be of a very excited row of people sitting directly behind home plate! But, as I looked around the newly renovated stadium I quickly decided that I wasn’t sold on that “Row One” being the best seat anymore. I decided this theme will have to be a series of different photos showing and telling why I think I might like to watch the game from a row other than the obvious “Row One.”

Being a player and watching from the dugout would be a great row one. Besides a good view I’d love to hear the conversations going on between the players and the coaches!


 This bat boy was probably excited about his row one position. I was smiling just watching him and thinking about  what a thrill it must have been for him to have that job for the day. Image

The new bar in center field has a pretty great view. People were really friendly out there!  I love the seats that line the entire outfield. It was a perfect day to be sitting there. I’m not so sure it would feel so perfect on a hot, sunny day.ImageImage

I wondered if this guy thought his front row seat was still good as he was being beat up by one of the team mascots?!Image

The Bradenton Mayor and his guests had a pretty good view.


 The press box wasn’t to shabby either… shhhhh 🙂 Image

But THIS is my idea of the BEST “Row One” seat. I would have traded with that guy all day long!Image

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!

  1. I know we tease you about your team but your photos are wonderful . I really want to be there no matter who the team is…and that’s what makes a good photo.
