Welcome to the bleacher section behind left field underneath the upper deck. The picture was taken at a SF Giants game in May 1988. You can see the left field foul pole and the press box in the distance. I used Kodak 35mm Kodachrome ASA 64 transparency film.

The SF Giants played the new expansion team, Florida Marlins, in the Giants Home Opener on Monday, April 12, 1993. Home Openers for the Giants were always guaranteed sellout games and tickets were harder to come by. I was extremely happy that I was able to go to this game. The Giants won the game, 4-3.

It was always nice to see the large crowd of people at Candlestick Park which was not a common sight unless it was the Home Opener, weekend Dodgers games, or Post Season games. Here was a look down the 3rd base side with the distinctive press box at the top of the stadium.

It was really amazing to see the natural complimentary colors when we visited Northern Ontario Canada to see family and the Fall Foliage in September 2014. This picture was taken without any color filters and the colors were what I saw in person. The different colored leaves were a good demonstration of color photography in nature.

The Yellow and Orange Sugar Maple Leaves brightened this Fall Foliage Day back in September 2014 in Northern Ontario Canada. The saturation in the colors of the leaves is unreal.

Fall Foliage, Breathtaking Trans-Canada Highway ON-17, in Northern Ontario, Canada in September 2014. Our great Canadian relatives were our tour guides and drove us out from Sault Ste Marie to some spectacular parks and to the shores of Lake Superior. That lake is huge! They called it an inland sea. We witnessed some fantastic Fall Foliage and were fortunate to have great weather during our stay.

Opening Day at Candlestick Park was always extra exciting as the stadium was full and sold out for that game. During each regular season, Candlestick Park only sold out a few times and it was usually for a big weekend Dodgers series.

This Opening Day game was the SF Giants vs the Florida Marlins on April 12, 1993. This was the Marlin’s first year in the Major Leagues as an expansion team. The Giants won the game 4-3. This was a view of the upper box seat area behind home plate.

Lower Box Seats behind home plate at Candlestick Park during batting practice before a SF Giants game. You can see the luxury boxes that circled above and the press box up on top of the stadium.

These were great seats with good chances of foul balls coming in this section. I rarely got to sit in this section because the seats were much more expensive and were harder to come by. When I did sit here, I always brought my glove just in case a foul ball came my way.

Morning fog cleared for this beautiful multi-colored arrangement in nature. This was taken in Northern Ontario Canada in September 2014. I had never seen so many colors in one tree before this. I experienced an awesome Fall Foliage experience while visiting family in Sault Ste Marie Ontario. They were so nice to take us to great Fall Foliage viewing areas. Thank you very much to our Canadian Relatives for helping us find these spots to take these pictures.
