My bestie was in town last week and we both experienced something new: baseball. After many years of living in Atlanta, neither of us had ever attended a Braves game. So when the opportunity presented itself, we surely took up the offer.
I’ll be honest: if baseball never existed, my life wouldn’t be affected. It’s an uninteresting and prolonged sport. I discovered many fans on their mobile devices, probably checking in, expressing how much “fun” they were having. You know how it goes on social media.
I’m not sure why I thought there would be some kind of shade at Turner Field. Oh no. The sun was not merciful to us chocolate girls. We were sweating profusely while wasting powdered sugar all over our clothing. A mess.
Aside from the sport, we had a great time! I couldn’t have had a better person to watch it with.
I cannot let anyone leave Atlanta without taking pics by an artsy wall. It’s my thing. Many thanks to my friend Ben Styles for capturing the moments. And this weird ass cheshire cat thing going on my face. SMH.
I have this super weird obsession with taking pics like Solange, but it never works out because I can’t keep a serious face.
I hope you enjoyed these images. I hope you could feel the joy we felt radiating from your screen. I hope you find something that makes you laugh uncontrollably today. And I hope you always remember this: live for the moments that make you feel alive.
