i made this image on an assignment for the local weekly newspaper. the story was about declining attendance at bingo halls around the county. i guess the story was right, not a lot of people playing that evening. i focused most of my shooting on the two ladies in this shot and did not really “see” this shot until well into the shoot. glad i found that angle, since i was mostly focusing on them. i like this one most, out of all i shot that night. seems to wrap up the story’s idea very nicely.
