Brent Wojahn of The Oregonian took this photo Monday night at the home opener of the Hillsboro Hops baseball club.
I'm fascinated by this photo, which doesn't even look like a photo. It looks like a painting, with a rainbow conveniently added to evoke some sort of fantasyland, or perhaps a dream of a baseball-like experience.
The lone vendor looks like he was drawn and painted in as an accessory as well; a concession to Norman Rockwell's vision of Americana, perhaps?
The grandstand in the background looks like an artist's rendering of what a grandstand would look like in a new park. Same with the figures on the diamond and in the dugout.
The photog did something special in creating this shot, though I'm not sure what it was. All I can tell you is it is amazing, like magic.
