So… no web site work or wildlife shooting on a short break.

What to do? Have one walk around lens, an older camera body, in a town I’ve never been.

Why not shoot a big pinball museum filled with antique machines to play. Oh, neon in a dark cavern so it’s all done in Black and White of course.

Old glass topped machines made reflections impossible to avoid.

This was mid day, mid week, which meant few people much of the time.

There were rooms filled with running games, but an entrance fee eliminated the need for a bag of coins. In theory you can play here about ten hours straight. Even a ‘Pinball Wizard’ would need some type of break.

The camera body did have a small built-in flash, but with flashing lights all around it had no idea what/how to work making it ineffective.

We found this online and a great surprise.

    1. It was interesting. Not something I grew up with in NYC though I did recognize one machine by its name. Made specifically for Rockaway Playland, the beach in Queens and about the same as Coney Island… without Nathan’s.
