Great atmosphere!  shock Really capturing the past arcades

BTW Do you have a special ensurance for your lair? If not ... think about it.

Wow, that starfield projection looks really cool.

By the way, how do you get your marquees to look so good in the photos?  Mine always get washed out.

The problem is, what is the stuff in there really worth ? For Bruno, and for us, loads of money. But then again, suppose everything gets lost in a fire or all games stolen.....no amount of money can ever ease the pain of that. And it's close to impossible to accumulate a collection like that again....even if you get plenty of money.

But indeed, an insurance still is a good thing to think about....

Not to mention the fact that the insurance company will try to low-ball you on everything!  confused

I'm happy your like the pictures  Smiley Thanks for your comments  Kiss

By the way, how do you get your marquees to look so good in the photos?  Mine always get washed out.

I'm still using my very old Canon IXUS v3 (pocket size) for taking snapshots.
In order to get a good view of the marquees, here's my trick : First, I'm slightly move my camera to an area where there's no big light or no marquee 'on', and let the camera do the focus itself, and then, I'm pointing back the camera where the cabinets are, with the marquees 'on'... I don't know exactly why, but I got better marquee pictures like that  Roll Eyes
