this was a place i was told i had to see whillst over here
that i would really really like it
so who was i to argue
it took about 3 hours for us to go around twice
the lighting was hard but it was fun
here are a few photos

the fist photos are my old Pentax 50mm f1.7 manual lens





Pentax 10-17 fisheye

Overwhelming place . Your FE bring out the perspective. Where exactly is that?

I think this is the "Roadside America" that is near Harrisburg, PA. I was raised in Eastern PA and I visited this in the 1950's-so it has been around for a while.

If I ever come to the US... Much more interesting than an Art Museum! Thanks for posting.
