In an effort to win some cash last week, I entered this competition called "Hansens Loves San Francisco." The competition was basically a forum for sharing your pride of your hometown while capturing a Hansen's soda in the photo. I've never entered any competition before (let alone a photography one) but a friend recommended I try this out. Plus for every online vote you receive, Hansen's donates $0.10 to the National Gardening Association. I'm no gardener but why not support it anyway right?!
There are four weeks of competition and each week one photo is selected as winner. The 4 weekly winners then compete head-to-head for the most votes over a 10-day period to be awarded the $5,000 grand prize. I entered Week 2 and here is my photo!
I thought this particular photo of AT&T Park would be a great fit because it encompasses so much scenery that is unique to San Francisco. There are thousands of fans who come not only to watch Giants baseball but to enjoy the spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay. What better way to spend a hot summer day than at the ballpark?
I entered Week 2 of the competition and although I rallied a bunch of friends, family and co-workers to vote for me, I didn't end up winning. It was fun sneaking that Hansen's can into the ballpark though and I have no regrets :) GO Giants!
