I’ve really been on an abstract kick as of late. I tend to look down a lot when I walk, and I began noticing patterns and shapes on the ground. Here’s what I see:

Twins 10, A’s 5

Last time I brought my camera to a Twins game, Johan Santana struck out 17 at the Metrodome in a 1-0 win over the Rangers. This time the Twins crushed the A’s 10-5 in Oakland, and I was right behind the dugout to take it in. That camera must be good luck.

Delmon Young and his empty .235 average join the team. Good game though (2-4, 3 RBI).

First-inning single for Joe Mauer. Sweetest swing in baseball.

Scott Baker gave up 2 hits through 8 innings before running out of gas in the 9th and leaving with a 10-0 lead and the bases loaded.
nathan
The remaining crowd of about 5,000 finally got into the game as the Twins bullpen imploded in typical fashion. The A’s cut the deficit to 10-5 before Joe Nathan struck out the final two batters with the bases loaded. A disconcerting end to a great game.

cannery
The derelict Washington Packing Corporation tuna cannery near Islais Creek Channel is an absolute gem of an abandoned building. I first came here in 2006 and returned recently with my tripod to give it a thorough exploration. Getting inside proved to be difficult, but a little determination goes a long way.

Closed since 1963 follwing a botulism scare, the cannery has surprisingly been left in a wonderful derelict state. Work crews are stripping the building of scrap metal, but some larger machines remain and it doesn’t appear to be in any immediate danger of demolition.

The cannery is home to some of the finest graffiti in San Francisco, a cathedral of pieces, burners, and tags. It’s known as the TIE building to local artists. Every accessible surface is plastered with graffiti.
