Portland Arcade: Getting My Game On

Posted on 4

I had a fun time shooting at a Portland Arcade called Electric Castle’s Wunderland. If you have been following my blog and Instagram for a while, you may know by now that I am a huge gamer. I love all types of games, be it sports, board games or video games. I have a competitive nature, and gaming allows me to hyper focus on one task at a time.

My photographer and I also shot at a really cool bar and restaurant called Nerd Out. This bar has comic book clippings all over the walls, and the name says it all – you can come here to nerd out with your friends! Luckily the two locations are across the street from one another, so you can have a fun night of nerding  out with your friends. If you’re ever in the area you need to check out this Portland arcade, it’s a really fun time.

From Space Invaders, to Sonic the Hedgehog, to Spider Man – I am all about the pop and gaming culture. I think a lot of people are confused when I say I am so into gaming, but I have been a gamer my entire life. I currently play on Xbox and sometimes on PC, but I have been playing on console a lot as an adult. As a kid I was a diehard Pokemon fan. My love of gaming stemmed from the classics, such as Nintendo’s Donkey Kong 64, Playstation’s Space Invaders, and World of Warcraft on PC.

This park reminded me of the garden of Eden. The hedges were trimmed perfectly, the trees were shaped perfectly round, and the delightful colors of the roses added to the ethereal atmosphere.
