Weekly Photo Challenge: Up – Juan Marichal Aims at the Moon

Standard

Good Evening:

I get lucky sometimes. I wandered past the Giants ballpark during the San Diego series (swept by the G-Men) and noticed that the location of the moon in relation to the statue of Juan Marichal allowed for a little fun with composition:

Given the strength of Marichal’s arm (he once pitched a 16-inning complete game shutout), a throw to the moon isn’t all that inconceivable.
