30 Minus 2 Days of Writing: Or else (15/28)

Feb 15

Seriously, I have nothing.

This challenge has been a whole heap of fun, but I’ve been trying and trying with this one and can’t think of anything. As far as themes and such go, I can usually adapt (note yesterday), but this one has be thrown for a loop.

I realize people might go into stories about the “or else,” but I can’t figure anything out.

So, instead, because this is usually Foto Friday, I’ve decided to try and make something humorous.

I’d say if you go into this place, you shouldn’t say much about it. Or else…

Don’t do it… or else.

The story behind this photo — I met up with my cousin to do some night photos around Atlantic City, NJ a few years ago. After doing some stuff near the casinos, she ordered a pizza to bring home, but we needed to waste some time. So she drove around a bit pointing a few things out. When I saw this place, I had her stop as I wanted to take photos.

It wasn’t in the greatest area of AC, but I figured if I quickly set up the tripod and snapped a few shots, I’d be OK. There weren’t many people around. My cousin wouldn’t get out of the car (who can blame her?), so I set up in front of her car and across the street from this place. I took a bunch of shots in about a three-minute span and quickly got in the car and took off.

Ahhh, the fun of trying to find sleazy photos in a city!

  1. I’ve often seen clubs like these. What I’m waiting for, though, is the Dead Nude Girls Club.

    I think you succeeded, and the picture is a perfect example of “or else”.

  3. Funny, but if I didn’t read the signs, I wouldn’t have thought it was a strip joint. I’m sure you may have noticed during your forays into Montreal, all our strip clubs have giant pictures of half-naked women in front of them. And most of them have real half-naked women in front of them. But maybe you didn’t notice. 😉

  4. I find it absolutely shocking that this wasn’t in a good part of town. :)

  5. I love it that your cousin refused to step out of the car. 😀 This is exactly the kind of thing I’d stop to take photos of, too. I’d feel horribly conspicuous standing there taking photos, but I’d still love it. 😉

    • Ha! Yep, I don’t blame her one bit. It worked out well because it was nice to have the car running and ready to go!

  6. Last time I was in AC I was told it is a safe town. Just as long as you down’t go out after dark.

    • Ha! Probably true. That’s the only time I’ve been there, though I imagine I’ll return to see things again!

  7. If I saw somebody set up with a camera and a tripod pointed at a place like this, the first thought that would pop into my mind would be “private detective looking for incriminating evidence.”

    Nice photo, by the way. It’s much classier than that smutty blintz stuff from the day before.

    • I would probably lean your way of thinking, too. I would wonder what somebody was doing.

      And no doubt, right? Bad stuff those blintzes!

  8. Worth all of your effort to get that shot!
