N.Kama ' Cabbie Madness ' New York, 2007

So I decided to go  a Lil Crazy with this one....not my fault though, got stung by Jez Coulson. (Yup! "Blurry Madness"....thats what am talking about). Whats the Big Apple without the ubiquitous crazy  yellow cabs???....It's total MADNESS!!!....being working on this image for the past few days now and to say it was one of the few shots I didn't care too much for....but hey,  after all I found it useful. I like this alot...LoL the lady above the cabbies on the ad. board, looks like she's sick of the crazy insanity of the vigorous city..hehehe.....Oucch! still game on the sting..... JEZ!

This image sums up my NYC experience: Chaos, people and cars moving every which way, and everything just a tad off kilter. I like this!

Coolio.......great image....... and hey this is even more nutty than mine!! Its definetly the city that never sleeps.....and therefore has issues of madness and sleep depravation.....well captured in this image......Weirdly I was actually right there tonight...... I was saying to my mate Marc what is that' WD NY' thats being advertised? We did'nt know...... (any ideas ?) Anyway we continued eating our food and did'nt even take a shot....... never mind a mega crazy one like this......nice one!......and thanks for all the links to my sites!
Cheers Jez XXXXXX
Nacha Kama: naaahhh I think yours is even more nutty than mine!! it's obvious to us about the "madness & sleep depravation" part so I totally agree. I'm sure you must have captured a few shots with Marc in other places, hence you did shoot any here....
Yeah about WD NY...it's a clothing line, so apparently the lady on the ad. board is modelng 1 of their collections. But most of all I'm glad that you like this...& apppricate your Gratitude wink

A very busy shot .. but I like it ..
Now this I really really like, I love it when folks have fun with their images and then produce such lovely awesome work like this, keep up the lovely work babes, I definitely prefer your digital work to your film work so far grin
Hmm, a bit overdone, but still nice.

This serves as a fine synopsis of the character of the "city." Excellent, creative effort.

alors ca, c'est génial ! les couleurs, les formes... bravo
It's a riot of colour and movement that makes a statement about the chaotic nature of large cities. Excellent work.
Love the tape effect over the corners.
i liked the processing, looks fine to me.
Beautiful experiment Chacha !!
