Off-day nonsense

November 03, 2009 | kevintooke | Comments 0

Rather dull day for baseball today.  In between news that Akinori Iwamura was dealt to the Pirates (sorry for the Heyman link) and that Craig Calcaterra is going to drop the gavel and blog baseball full time, there just wasn’t a lot going on.

So, naturally, I got to surfing.  Actually came across something pretty cool, called tilt-shift photography.  It’s a way to make real life photos look like miniature models.  Nothing to do with baseball, or Game 5, or hot stove banter, but it is one way to make Busch Stadium look really cool (click on photo for full size):

My amateur hack-jobs have nothing on the ones I linked to above, but still pretty fun.  If you have photoshop you can make especially gnarly ones.  For the rest of us, there is a free tool here that doesn’t require a software download or anything (and is what I used to make these).

Hopefully this amuses you enough to get you to Game 5.  Then Chase Utley can do the rest.
