I have been associated with the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown New York for 20 years now. Several of my images are on display in the "sacred grounds" section of the hall. The hall has now used my images on their website to document Candlestick Park coming down. Here is the link.
My site has OVER 450 slideshows. Many are of demolished stadiums and arenas. Places like Chicago Stadium, the Boston Garden, Comiskey Park and many, many others. I also have slideshows of current and no longer in use venues, as well as sites of where many of these facilities once stood.
Photos with my watermark (copyright Bob Busser) may NOT be used without written permission and compensation. Any unauthorized use will result in prosecution. All photos WITHOUT my watermark are not mine and WILL NOT BE SOLD. This includes ALL maps and aerials. Those photos and maps were found on the internet.
You can find me on facebook... http://www.facebook.com/bob.busser. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
In remeberance of my mom and dad, Bill and Ronnie Busser, who gave me the travel bug, and encouraged my own unique hobby.
I plan on returning to just about all of the venues where I didn't take a ton of photos. When I do that, I will replace the photos I found on the internet with my own.
This site is dedicated to the many ballparks and arenas I have visited and personally photographed over the last 35 + years. The albums are all in alphabetical order. Click on (show all timeless) to show all the albums. Click on the slideshow tab above the pictures. A slideshow starts and specially selected music will play. All stadiums and arenas are sorted alphabetically. MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA and College venues, as well as minor league ballparks and arenas. All told, I have seen over 700 stadiums and arenas in North America. I also have stadiums no longer in use and ones that have been demolished. Feel free to look around and please drop me an email to let me know what you think. All photos on this site except where noted are copyrighted by Bob Busser and may not be downloaded or used without written permission.
I have also included ghost towns in California. These places fascinate me, as they are decaying history sites. I hope you enjoy the photos and plan a trip to these places.
For the past 8 years, all my parks and arenas have been shot digitally with my Nikon cameras. Before that, all were shot with nikon and film.
In case you were wondering, I have used the following Nikon bodies for my photos. Film is as follows, Nikon N6006, N8008, F4 and F5. Early film (mid 70's thru the 80's) were shot with a Canon AE1. All digital photos have been shot with Nikon cameras and lenses. Starting with the Nikon D2H, Nikon D2XS, Nikon D300 and the Nikon D3.
