Sunday I went into downtown Miami to take some photos – 175, to be exact. Here are a few. Left click on the photos to see large size. A double click makes them huge:
I captured this kid on his skateboard in a little skatepark near the Government Center.
Boats moored by the Bayfront shopping area. The elevated road in the background leads to the Port of Miami – a large man-made island jutting out into Biscayne Bay. A huge cruise ship can be seen behind the road.
A homeless man near the skate park. It is so sad to see such people in such a state in the midst of such affluence. This poor man looks like he hasn’t bathed or changed clothes in weeks. It also appears from the state of his trousers that he may occasionally not bother to use public rest rooms!
The week before I went with a group from the Camera Club to Vizcaya, an estate turned into a museum near downtown Miami where I also took many photos. While in the estate’s formal English Garden I noticed this statue of a man who appeared to be admiring the fancy fountain, and thought the view with the statue in the foreground made for an interesting scene.
When I edited the photo on my PC I got the thought that the photo would also look good in black and white. This is the result:
Here’s another view from the formal gardens:
This is a rear view of the mansion, which is situated by Biscayne Bay.
Looking out onto the Bay:
