Description The Wonder Wheel is the highest ferris wheel in the world. It is located in Coney Island. In its' heyday Coney Island was the place where the biggest and best was built. Construction started in 1918 and was completed in 1920. In 1989, it achieved landmark status. The excitement I experienced as a kid still is alive in my memory. Sitting in one of the cars looking down at the small figures below filled me with such joyous pleasure. It was as if I were sitting on the top of the world.
Madeline Ellis, New York Member Since December 2007 Artist Statement I am married and I have one daughter, 28. I studied photography and interior design. I enjoy blending the two. Almost everything that I shoot ends up on my wall and enhances my space. I have had one women shows in Manhattan and my work has been in photography magazines as well. Recently, a photo of mine was purchased by Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas. When someone purchases one of my photos, I become a part of their life and in a small way have brightened up their space. It is a very gratifying feeling.
