Big Apple

New York, the Big Apple, and
baseball . . . a shot of an actual apple
with baseball stitches carved into it
by hand (my hand) was a “Natural”,
Robert Redford notwithstanding.
The apple was part of my lunch. I
had it shot in the photo studio,
laid it out on the computer and
had our baseball special section
cover in a couple of hours that I
feel perfectly targeted a tough
audience, New York city
sports fans.
