Opening Day ticket prices were “in the stratosphere” according to my friend Alan, so we passed on the chance to witness the Red Sox demolish the Bronx Bombers. But I rode the train in anyway, wandered around to observe the scene from outside and enjoy the beautiful day.
The fans were having a good time at the bars nestled underneath the elevated on River Avenue.
I took this fellow’s picture, just to try the zoom telephoto on my new Sony Cyber-shot DSC HX200V. Not that my objective is to be a low-rent paparazzi, but he had no idea I was taking his picture. Of course, it was a fairly crowded scene. With plenty of light, the resolution was pretty good too.
I wandered over to Joyce Kilmer Park, to get a photo of the Louis Heintz statue, a late 19th century Bronx civic leader and Street Commissioner.
The brick facade of an apartment building facing Joyce Kilmer park – diamond pattern brick, double arched windows, decorative floral terracotta arches, etc. This stuff is all over the Bronx.
