From the Vault -- Pictures from Wrigley 9 -- King Kong

Back in the day I went to a number of Cubs games with my Canon FTb equipped with a telephoto lens.

The camera looked like this:

The lens looked something like the one below.  It's a fixed focal length of 400 mm, no zoom.  

Dave Kingman is one of my all-time favorite batters to watch.  I didn't have any kind of automatic film advance so these must have been separate swings.  They're ordered to look like they may have been just one or two.


  1. The shot of the ball hitting the bat is pretty cool. I can't imagine trying to do that with film especially without the auto film advance. I guess with practice you can time it just right. I like most of the people are intently watching him bat. Cool shots again.

  2. Thanks Jeremy. I guess I had some skill but probably more luck than anything.
