Mohegan Sun

This is the center atrium at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
I went down there to bet $8 on a good cup of coffee.
I WON! There was a Starbucks, and they took my $8 and I got coffee and a bagel.

Ok, really, I went down there to watch a baseball game.
However, the stadium was about 4 miles from the casino.
So, I figured I would wander over and see it.
Holy Crap! The place is HUGE.
I had my D200 with me to get this shot (and shoot the game)
I put it in my backpack after coffee, and was walking back to my car.
I missed the exit to the garage, and ended up walking through
the casino floor with a backpack that contained a camera.
I'm walking through looking for the garage, and the security guard
comes up to me and explains that I am violating the rules.
Next thing you know, he is escorting me to my car!
Not just telling me which way to the garage, he escorted me the whole way.
Brought me all the way out, all the way to the 6th floor of the garage,
and watched me drive away. I gotta say, that made me a little nervous.
HOWEVER, when I got home, I had a look at the picture above,
and that made everything ok.

What a great way to spend an afternoon.

I would say, duplicate everything but the backpack, and you will be fine.
(oh, don't waste money gambling though, you do know the house always wins, don't you?)
