I don't know what the hell this is, but it's awesome!

thanks, danielle. i almost had my lens smashed to smithereens while taking this shot.
it is the part of a duckpin bowling ball return...the part that slows the ball down as it comes up the ramp and onto the ball rest. (i am sure there are terms for these things, but not knowing them i will make my own.) there aren't many duckpin bowling alleys left in the world, but richmond is lucky enough to have one of them. its like regular bowling, but with much smaller balls & pins. highly recommended for a night of fun with friends.
