[4-6-2011] - Arcade
Mom can I have a dollar?
Arcades have a certain charm to them. Perhaps they are a dyeing breed these days with the advancement of technology, but I can remember a time growing up when they where held in high esteem. Showing off your skills on the latest version of Street Fighter at the local arcade was still considered cool in some circles. Most of the that has all gone the way side, with the advent of smart phones and better console game systems, but I still enjoy a good game of Ms. Pac-Man now and again.
This is a 8 to 9 second exposure, taken with a cable release and the Holga on a gorilla pod strapped around the top of a chair. My iPhone meter gave me various readings between 1 to 3 seconds and decided to do a longer exposure to be safe. I am really quite pleased with the results, particularly the detail visible in the screen to far left in the photograph.
