Bethesda Arcade

Photographed with a 4 x 5 inch large format view camera. Bethesda Arcade. I used the 4 x 5 camera for a few years. But I did get some good shots with it. This was taken before the renovation; chicken wire was in place to prevent bits of ceiling from falling on tourists.  My two best selling prints were taken in Central Park with this large camera, back in 1993.
