Electric Palace

By TrevBatWCC    
Close to the carousel in my previous upload was this amusement arcade, and whilst the rides weren't in action, this was open. Often rubbish bins are usually strategically placed in front of your best shots, but here one was conveniently situated to stand my mini tripod on to take this shot of the amusement arcade's entrance! Smile
Many thanks to Dave (HobbitDave) for his User Award on my previous upload, Fairground Attraction , most appreciated Smile

What a super image. It brings back all that childish excitement of a holiday near the beach and a pocket full of pennies.
Wonderful colours Trev and a reminder of childhood holidays by the sea.

Gosh, what a cornucopia of colour and shapes: so much to take in.
Good that the bin was strategically placed for you........up here I have been trying to capture a certain street art image but every time I visit the spot there's a series of large commercial bins obscuring half the artwork.

It looks like a modern update of Coleridge, complete with dancing girls in the frame bottom right.

Quote:In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea

Excellent image of the arcade - good use of the bin too Trev.
I cured myself of trying penny machines when I was seventeen and worked in Blackpool!

You wouldn't get a shot like this in the summer Trev - the place would be packed with people falling over themselves to part with their money!!! A very colourful and as usual very well taken and presented image.
