The City of MAnaus- Thumbnails
In the piece I'm transcribing it describes a city along the river Nergo called Manaus. I've been trying to visualize how the harbour, then streets with mansions all blend together to eventually lead into the city centre. Above are some ideas I've came up with . However the part I'm struggling with the most is depicting all the lovely coloured mansions without looking generic. without using the obvious front on shoot of the building. I imagined one of the churches and play park together and for the city centre with the Opera House I imagined it being a bit like in the Hunchback of Notra Dame. The Palace of Justice instantly draws attention because of the size and splendor of the building.
