Photo shooting gallery, at the Photographers' Gallery; London

At the Photographers' Gallery in London, I was introduced to photo shooting galleries, a gimmick of yesteryear, albeit a gimmick that is pretty cool. Drawing parallels between photography and gunplay, the subject is given a pellet gun, and if the target is hit, a photograph is taken.

I paid £3 for four shots, but I missed the target. No photo for me.
