THE SOUTHERN ROUTE
From the series "New York by the bird"
I don't only work with Manhattan skylines, and sometimes, I like to put my feet on the skids (long metal platforms of a helicopter), I like to twist the harness and to be neither comfortable nor relaxed. I relish hovering my dear camera above the void (with a shoulder harness…), and thus doing it my conk as well. Despite the vertigo and the lump in my throat, it's always interesting to look down. You get some amazing perspectives and some powerful dynamics, so many of them that you have the feeling to fish in Mongolian lakes (well, that's because those are horns of plenty, trouts wise). Just feel the sweet iron curves and the smalls of the buildings' backs. Oh yeah… Use some Barry white's songs for the mood and enjoy the views above New York city!
It's Times Square neighborhood:
- The strongest avenue here is broadway
- The other avenue, behind, is the 7th one
- Down right corner, the building with Allianz III logo is the Paramount Plaza, International Style, Emery Roth sons (fathers of hundreds of NYC skyscrapers) , 1971
- The almost flat building between the avenues is the Winter Garden Theatre (poor thing in the feet of giants), William Albert Swasey, 1911
- The building with the Buffalo logo (center) is the 750 7th avenue building (superb. Feel my sarcasm…), Post-modernism, Kevin Roth, 1989
- Finally, in the up left corner, the building in juxtaposed cubes is the Lehman Brothers building (don't spit on your screen, please), Post-modernism, Kohn Pedersen, 1999
