More than often, a camera in my hand ,
I hear the traditional : "No pictures please"
But ,this time , it opened the doors...
They were getting ready for
A cocktail party at Henry Bendel on 5th Avenue .
You can see the DJ on the right.
This building was granted a landmark status for
The Original Lalique art glass windows,not to be missed if you are in town!

Le plus souvent, avec mon APN a la main,
J'ai le droit au classique: "Pas de photos s'il vous plait..."
Mais cette fois il m'a ouvert les portes du magasin Henri Bendel,
fermé pour la preparation d'un cocktail..
Les vitres de cet immeuble de la 5eme avenue sont classees au patrimoine,
ce sont des dessins originaux de Lalique,
a ne pas manquer si vous passez par la!..

Brilliant capture! Very rich in colours!

Besides the excellent, interesting composition, you get such bright and crisp indoor shots. And find such pretty subjects too. Lovely.

...èlégance sobre.
Le beau proposé avec simplicité dans un lieu fascinant.
Ce que nous appelons: "Classe".

honnetement sur la premiere photo, je me croyais dans une eglise, avec cette femme qui semble prier. Superbe la vue sur ta 2eme photo. C'est sympathique pour les photos, car en effet de + en + on se fait interdire de photos ;o(

Je vais devoir me satisfaire de tes images, superbe en l'occurrence, cette vue en plongée bien vue...;))

il faut que je vienne à Nwe York, il faut que je vienne à New York vraiment. Avec mon APN. :-)

C'est bizarre comme un APN est reçu différemment selon le pays où on se trouve. Certains pensent espionnage, d'autres se disent publicité.

superbes!!!les deux.

Can't say more than Tash did. Well done!

Très élégant, très beau, très 5th avenue...

c'est vraiment super ;)

Elegant et raffiné. Couleurs et lumières qui enrichissent le procédé.
Bien joué.

I think you have the right sensibility to get the best of which subject of your picture.The first shot is so delicate.I loved that light, the romantic feeling in the air and the girl is very charming!
Great post
Léia :-)

Stunning perspective and creatively captured. Love the lead-in with the woman gazing downward then the floor falling away in your second image explaining visually the first image. Nice!!

effectivement j'imagine assez bien des laliques avec la fresque derrière la jeune femme ! la vue plongeante donne le vertige !
What a place !

as always beautiful photos....Barb

Nancy May 7, 2009 at 7:36 PM  

Lovely - wish I was there!

Unknown May 7, 2009 at 7:49 PM  

Both shots are fantastic but the 2nd shows us how fantastic the building is! (I took a while to find the DJ as I was looking down to the ground... lol!)

PJ May 7, 2009 at 8:47 PM  

So, M-N, what were you wearing? I wager it was something fashionable.

Virginia May 7, 2009 at 10:15 PM  

I know for sure you were just as fetching as this lady! What fabulous shots as always. HOW DO YOU DO IT???
I wish you could join us in Paris this summer. Any chance??

Lowell May 7, 2009 at 11:01 PM  

More excellent work. You capture what you shoot with such sharp and crisp focus. A delight to look at!

Clueless in Boston May 7, 2009 at 11:17 PM  

Your shot looking down is like seeing snippets of life from various different lives. It's kinda kewl.

Il y a aussi..There is also...
