A Professional Sports Absence

Cleveland's Progressive Field and Quicken Loans Arena sit in darkness.

Looking thru last year’s photos, I found this shot, taken from the top of Cleveland’s Terminal Tower, of Progressive Field in the background and Quicken Loans Arena in the foreground.  What seemed photo worthy to me was the fact that both facilities were dark.  Unusual for a beautiful clear night in Cleveland.  This year however, with baseball season over and the NBA at a standoff and with no games being played, this view is probably quite common.

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
