Pictures from the US

Pole Position I have added pictures from our recent trip to LA, Las Vegas and San Francisco to the gallery.
I forgot to mention before that we wandered into the Musee Mechanique at Pier 45 in Fisherman’s Wharf while we were in San Francisco. This is a fascinating place that houses one of the world’s largest collections of antique arcade machines. They have a few classic video games like Pole Position which I dropped a few quarters into but mostly they are cabinets containing strange little diaramas with bizarre names such as “The Drunkard’s Dream”, “Bimbo Box” and that old classic “Opium Den”.

Also, I have converted the video of the Fountains of Bellagio into flash and embedded it into my previous post. Do check it out. It was taken on Kathryn’s phone and 320 x 240 pixels doesn’t really do it justice but it does give you more of an idea than still photos. Dancing fountains might sound corny but something about it was just memsmerising to watch.
