Great set of photos! I'm not sure if this has been asked before, but what camera do you use?

The skydome to me seems like the exterior could do a better job. The interior isn't too bad. But there's something about the other ball parks (not the history) that makes it seem like it has a legacy when looking at the exterior when I went to a game there (Wrigley field, Dodgers stadium).

Keep up the great pics, Mark! This is the photo album I regularly check whenever I do go on SSC.

You've got a great thread going here Mark!

I thought I had already expressed my appreciation a few pages back but I guess I didn't.

Great pictures!

Skydome... It'll always be that to me

I still don't get why they just didn't call it: The Rogers Skydome

Sounds so much better

@ jakefrusciante: Thank you very much jakefrusciante! I know right, the too much concrete exterior is kind of imposing, but I find it okay nonetheless. At least the color is not dreary gray. But I agree with you, it would look way better if the exterior is improved or updated. I've seen some baseball parks and stadia too, and I actually thought that the Sky Dome is in a league of its own, and more like a cross between a big stadium and a small one.
As for the camera, I use Leica D-LUX2 90-99% of the time and Canon Rebel XT for the remainder.

@ Taller, Better: Thanks man, I did, I hope you had a great one too!! Have a happy new year!!

@ kardeee: Thanks very much, appreciate it! I'm glad that you like them! Makes me wanna improve more and more. Thanks again!

@ arzaranh: Hi there! Umm, both actually, people use Rogers Centre since it is the formal commercial name, but some still use the original one because it connects to them more as Torontonians, and probably for sentimental or affectionate reasons. I put The Sky Dome as the title because I don't want to be redundant since Rogers Centre is already in the photo itself.

@ ale26: Hello ale26! Yeah, me too, it'll always be Sky Dome no matter who the owner or sponsor is and what commercial name they put on it. Or may be I'm just biased against Rogers?! haha

They've been talking about sprucing up the exterior for a few years. With the Pan-Ams coming up, they may actually get around to it at last!
