FROM STREET LEVEL OF NEW YORK CITY LOOKING UP TO THE UNNERVING SENSATION OF LOOKING DOWN, MADELEINE WAS OBVIOUSLY OVERAWED BY WHAT SHE SAW THROUGH THE CAMERA. HERE IN HER SECOND COLLECTION WE SEE IMAGES SO FAMILIAR TO THE WORLD THROUGH HER EYES.
WEEK ONE – THE IMAGE OF THE SQUIRREL TOOK THE EYE & HEART OF THE POP’S. And, the first to go into the draw on October 11 will be “straycat”. Now, in the second week gaze across the CHOICES and make a selection and POST of PRAISE!
NYmd2..Room with a view, high above the streets of Manhattan, Madeleine’s camera takes in the views of the towering sprawling city with its contrast of buildings, and their lofty heights. The Empire State stands out against the skyline. What a city it must be!
NYmd1The Chrysler Building looks to be leaning on an angle like the famous Tower O f Pisa. Its just an illusion created by Madeleine’s camera angle and makes a “dramatic point” as the eye is taken from the bottom to the top left corner. Clever thinking! Worthy of a Post Of Praise.
NYmd3.Creative thinking looking up through the globe in the forecourt of the Rockerfeller Building towards the tower, and the buildings at the base providing a frame focusing your eye up and beyond.
NYmd2.The iconic Empire state building from the Reckerfeller Centre, the backdrop for scenes from iconic movies including an Affair To Remember and Sleepless In Seattle, and so many others. A must see stop for every visitor to the city. Interesting touches with the telescope and fence added to the image to give feeling to the shot.
NYmd4.Madeleine’s collection finishes with the grand lady herself towering over the waters of the Hudson river, standing tall and proud with her message of welcome and friendship to all she sees, and who gaze upon her. Perfectly balanced composition to the appreciative eye.
