Moon Over Manhattan
Mark E Tisdale
Photograph - Photo Art
This work is very much a fantasy. It was the result of one day of a 365 day art project I did a couple of years ago. I can hardly said to have turned out 365 pieces of true art, but there were days like this one where the result was worth every one of those attempts for me.
This is based on a New York City photo taken looking at the island of Manhattan from Brooklyn, and yes, that is the Brooklyn Bridge and it's twinkling lights at night! This piece though was never intended to be about reality. It's an idealized Big Apple, the likes of which you'd dream of not see with your eyes. And I've thought many times when I looked at that bigger than life moon hanging over Manhattan that this very much reminds me of a massive backdrop for a stage production about New York. Can't you picture that? Maybe a musical... Sigh...
