Stirring Art Photo: Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva, Illinois

Art Photo

“The purpose of art,” the present author has often proffered, while nursing a brandy, to an eager and waiting audience, “is to re-create the entire Human Condition in a single, unapologetic volley.”

It was that precise wisdom-thought which the author had in mind when he took the photo embedded here of Fifth Third Bank Ballpark — home of Class-A Cubs affiliate, the Kane County Cougars — in Geneva, Illinois, this past Saturday. It was also the wisdom-thought he (i.e. that same author) had in mind when he very artfully applied one of Instagram’s default filters to the image in question, before uploading it to his entirely unique profile page on that same site.

    Meh. I would have preferred this in Walden and having been brightened with the brightness-icon thingy. But an okay effort. Keep reaching for that rainbow!
