Two weeks ago we had a short intermission from shooting chefs and food. New York Times Magazine called and asked us to head over to Las Vegas to shoot a feature they call “9 of a Kind”. The article was in this weekends magazine and is also online. The subject of the feature was things that are pawned these days. We spent 2 days at Pioneer Loan, a Pawn Shop in North Las Vegas. The folks there were great! Really accommodating! While we did not see anything over-the-top wacky come through the doors, it was interesting to learn more about the real pawn business. You can see some of the things that came through the door by checking out the New York Times “Slideshow“.
