Gorgeous. The weather looks mighty nice there. It's kind of drizzly there, I am so envious. Loving the different shots!

Nice work :)

Isn't it just amazing where we can find beauty in our world?!?! Wonderful photos, Betty!! You've brightened my day!

Mamma has spoken said...

A track that has no one on it, that in itself is amazing! Great photos!

The Chicken's Consigliere said...

The second one is my favorite. Looks like benches in the sky.

Lourie said...

Those are such cool shots.

football in the air..??

slommler said...

Wonderful photos!!!!! It is hard to capture, with any clarity, stadium bleachers. You did a great job!

Joe Cap said...

What a clean, beautiful stadium.
Your pictures always come out so great.
It is too hot around here to go out and take pictures now.
More Betty please!

Anything Fits A Naked Man said...

LOVE it, love your themes!! Although, being the enormous football (Cleveland Browns!) fan that I am, I can't wait until stadiums like these are filled with rowdy fans in the Fall!!

Daisy said...

It's so cool looking at the world from your viewpoint, Betty. These are really great pictures. The stadium is portrayed quite differently here when it is empty and no one is around as compared to how you usually think of it--full of people, crowded and noisy.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Silent and really damn clean!

Momma Fargo said...

Those are the cleanest bleachers I have ever seen.

loveable_homebody said...

I like the light bouncing off the bleachers... BUT these images kind of upset me. When I was a kid watching track and field at our local stadium, I always imagined myself or someone else tumbling down the bleachers. You know how some people don't walk down on the steps, but on the actually bleachers? AAAAH!

Ally said...

whenever i see bleachers i think of like rocky or some movie where people are running up and down training. weird, i know. i also think of ny yankees bleacher creepers as they call them here.

Ally said...

but the images are really cool the way you captured them!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

What a great angle on all of these photos. You have an artistic eye.

Madi and Mom said...

BB what a unique silver post!!
You are quite creative. Thank you for you kind words on our blog today. We are having fun, as my hubby says, on our Steeple Chase.
The last Sunday in June will finish up the ones within a 10 mi radius of home. We're already working on ones outside 10 miles....

Old Kitty said...

Wow - I love how they are cold and impersonal against the other colours. Perfect captured pics of symmetry and form. Lovely!

Take care

Maggi said...

What pretty shots! So sunny and yet so solitary...

Marlene said...

The silver against the blue sky - looks fantastic.

Ann said...

Aw dang, looks like I missed the big game. Oh well at least I won't have a problem finding a seat :) Cool pictures, the silver bleachers looks awesome against that blue sky

The Empress said...

Oh, now I don't know how to think of you: a writer? a photoer?

Either way, you are excellent at both. Excellent.

The Retired One said...

Great angles and lines in these shots!

Kamana said...

hi! thanks for visiting me and for your lovely comments. i love what your ambition is to be in old age! ;)

Aging Mommy said...

Your photography Betty is poetry for the eyes.

Lin said...

I must be getting old, but looking at bleachers just makes my back hurt. I think I am scarred from all those years of watching football games and the marching band in the cold weather. :)

Cheeseboy said...

There is something so eerily cool about an empty stadium, no matter the size. Love these pictures.

Linda said...

What a peaceful day you had..Great shots as usual. Who would ever know that half the time these bleachers are filled with noisy happy fans.

Jimmy said...

Nice Pictures Betty,

Throws a whole new perspective on the bleachers, a peaceful one at that.

DrSoosie said...

Kind of sad to see an empty stadium with no cheering fans. It is almost eerie. Nice shots!

Crystal Mary said...

Excellent photography!!
Are you here in Oz?
The windmill looks Outback..
I actually have a small one in my frontyard. love them.
God Bless. Crystal

Kazzy said...

New or newly scrubbed??

You really make me want to get a new camera!

Ashley King said...

awesome pictures, as always!!! i always think of running the bleachers.... my legs burning.... me sweating.... and a HORRIBLE fear of slipping down the stairs.... but there was an amazing sense of power once you reach the top and look over the edge.... like you're on top of the world.... =)

betty sits on top of the world today. ;)

Muthering Heights said...

It looks so peaceful! :)

tattytiara said...

Oh cool, this post was truly an experience. You really brought a little welcome stillness into my day.

Hilary said...

Lines, perspective, shadows and curves. You've found it all. Great shots. Who knew an empty stadium could look so cool?

Jenny said...

What a neat post!!!

I see those bleachers and remember having to climb them over and over again for gym class.

YogaforCynics said...

Who woulda thunk you could do so much with stadium bleachers...great photos.

RawknRobynsGoneBlogWild said...

Great photos. I like the angles and perspectives. Too bad this game didn't bring in a single fan, though. I'm guessing it wasn't the World Cup.
Cheers,

The Crazy Baby Mama said...

ooh, this makes me want to dust off my nikon.

beautiful shots - love the sense of linear symmetry.

Alyssa said...

You take the most amazing shots!

Dr. Heckle said...

Those shots make me think, "the calm before the storm..."

Ms. Anthropy said...

What... no litter? Sure wouldn't look like that around here.

Mad Woman said...

That last picture makes me think of the movie "Grease". "Tell me more, tell me more, did you get very far"

Ca88andra said...

How blue is that sky! Wow!

Pat said...

Now I feel better. I thought I was the only one who took pictures of empty stadium seats. Whew! I feel much better now. Great pics, by the way!

Katie's Dailies said...

I love the second and the last one in particular. The blue is out of this world!

Pun intended, of course!

Venassa said...

Pretty. Looks like a gorgeous day.

ASBLACKASOBAMA said...

This makes me think of the stadium scene in LOST when Jack and Desmond are running up and down the stairs.... They were running in a bigger stadium though.... Great pictures....

prashant said...
