Hey look…Wrigley Field!!!

Photo Information:

Location: Chicago, Illinois; Wrigleyville Neighborhood
Camera: Zeca Bettax
Lens: Schneider-Kreuznach 105mm f/4.5 Radionar
Film: Fuji Neopan Acros 100 (120)

For those of y’all who really want to know about the history of the place, the original field was completed in 1914 and designed by Zachary Taylor Davis. Of course, the field has been renovated and added to over the past (almost) 100 years, so little of the original field remains at this point. Still, we all love it up here.

Sidenote: I actually like this part of the field better than the main entrance; the latter is dominated by the ticket windows, and apart from a large (and rather old) sign, it is rather nondescript. This corner, OTOH, has all sorts of interesting things in it…not the least of which is the gigantic Chicago Cubs logo…which lights up at night!

Oh, and not a bad photo for a camera that is almost 80 years old (the Bettax, along with most of the Zeh product line, was produced during the mid-1930s), right?

Enjoy.
