Arcade Fire

Mall arcades can be a surprisingly depressing place as an adult. Behind their flashing lights you note the beat-up carpet and the very minimal rewards for your gaming efforts in the depressing collection of prizes.

This visit was a pleasant escape from a dreary day and a nice change from my usual outdoor settings for my outfit pictures. There were a couple of children running around with arms flailing; proof that the magic of arcades isn't gone for everyone...
