Inside 'The Dome'.
This is a panorma stiched from five images (although I didn't do a very good job -- it was very difficult since I'd shot them with such a wide angle lens). The SkyDome was renamed (rather annoyingly) to 'The Roger's Centre' by Rogers Communications when it was bought two years ago. The game had an attendance of about 30,000 people according to the announcement which gives you a sense of what the total capacity is. I was there with K. for a game. We didn't expect the roof to be open sine it looked so cloudy and because it was so cool out. It was a good game with a lot of action but sadly the Toronto Blue Jays lost to the Yankees 6-3.
The stadium cost $570 Million to build in 1989 and was the first stadium built with a retractible roof that moves using electric train engines. Rogers communications bought the financially plagued stadium in 2004 for $25 Million. Yes $25. The stadium can seat up to 53,500 people.
The open roof made for some good photographs though. Take a look at some of my skyline shots in the archive to see what the buidling looks like from outside :)
