Madame Tussauds, Et Al


So today we had a bit of lie in, and went to Madame Tussauds, I thought that the statues were quite lifelike, and it really did feel quite weird walking round the room having the eyes looking at you.

If you stared into the eyes, up close and personal with the wax works, you almost expected them to say “what you doing looking at me for”.

At the museum there was a 4d Marvel experience. The 20 min film was in 3d, the seats moved, bubbles were blown into the audience, strobe lights and lasers flew by, it really was a cool experience.

After Madame Tussauds, I came back to the hotel for a bit of a rest and went to the National Photography Museum. The museum was full of old pictures and photographs that really were quite thought provoking in the story that they told. I didn’t think I would have enjoyed a art gallery/museum like that as much as I did.

This evening I went to take pictures of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. I attempted to take HDR panoramas, so the results won’t be seen until ive stitched them together (as I don’t have Photoshop on my MacBook Air).

I also took some pictures of The Empire State, as it was lit up with different colored lights for Gay Pride. From what I’ve been told this was the first year that the Empire State has been lit up like this for Pride, no doubt a mile post for recognition in equality in the US.
