WITH ONLY WEEKS TO GO, MADELEINE TOOK TO THE STREETS OF MELBOURNE WITH A FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras CREW for a practice run for her mission in New York city. She battled with herself like all the others striving to find images to make the cut to be included in the FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP ALBUM to be delivered to the SCHOOL of the BLESSED SACRAMENT. While at the same time, making them all aware of what they could do with a camera in their hands.
714MP12. Madeleine was at the crossroads; ready to take her next steps in the search for CITY of CONTRASTS SUPER SHOTS. Come on,tag along in her camera bag as she takes a stroll around town and finds it to be an enchanting place to be with a camera.
714Mp10. Lines in all direction takes you down the street of discovery with a magnificent CITY of CONTRAST view with the grey look of the intersection and the gleaming look of the Commonwealth Bank looming over the city streets.
714M Buskers from the world over entertain on the city streets adding another contrast to those rushing by to hose sitting on the old town hall steps (now the H&M stoXXXX
714MP6. Bikes not only becoming part of the city scene providing a contrast to transport, they regularly are placed nowadays around the city with advertising placards attached. Like some of the other KWC on the shoot, Madeleine found them a worthy subject to focus on.
714MP17. Below 714MP4. Below
Two images of these landmark establishments caught the young photographers eye with these. Two contrasting ideas with the photo on the left using the remaining foliage on the branches to add interest to the scene. On the right, a town hall window reflects upon another building with the brilliant coloured yellow flowers taking your eye.
714MP1. The doorway to exquisite taste in all things luxurious and beautiful. The impressive door handle gives you the feeling of entering another world, and one that Madeleine found with an inquisitive eye. One that she hopes will open the door to a SUPER SHOT.
714MP15 Again, we see an image similar to an earlier one that’ shows of the dramatic contrast of design together with construction materials. An image that illustrates Melbourne’s modern building contrasts, and the looks of today that attract the attention of all who study them.
714MP3 All things to point for Myer Melbourne as below the verandahs the crowds rushed to bag a bargain, oblivious of what is above them and how hard the FOCUS FORCE KWC were working to find these images. On the other side “STRIKE” is what is being hoped for in this image that operhaps might just “bowl” the CHOICE MAKERS over.714MP15
714MP9.The cold chilly streets of the city are brightened with the warming contrast of the colours of the flowers on the stand outside the town hall. Stands like these are peppered around the city just as they are in the Big Apple.
714MP20. We started this tour of the city looking for the images that showed the CITY Of CONTRASTS with a street view of view and now, we come to the end of this journey looking down the shadowy domain of a laneway running off the Bourke mall. The walls creating a canvas for the painters of the night, who disappear with the appearance of the twilight of early morn leaving behind their masterpieces. Just like they would do in New York.
WRITE A POST of PRAISE choosing two of the images you see each day that you consider would make a picture postcard view of Melbourne to be reproduced as a KIDzPIKz postcard. The high scorers will then be considered for the collection which FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP AMBASSADOR Madeleine Puli will pack into her luggage to hand out to New York Kids With Cameras. Just write the image numbers in your post and we’ll do the rest.
