I'm off on another adventure to Miami, Florida. Attending a work convention in downtown. So far this downtown is different than most towns I've visited in this country, and I'm doing my best to explore the unique flavor of this city. One minute you're looking at a Little Havanna or Latin America area, turn around 90 degrees and view the avant garde billion dollar condo sykscrapers.
So I'll endeavor to bring you a few good photos from the city while avoiding the fun any city can offer. For instance today I saw three teens rescue their bicycles from a theft right in front of me. It was very interesting...guy riding down the street on two similar bikes, then a bike rams the guy perpendiculary to knock him down. He got in protest only to face the two girls whose bike he stole, and the teenage young man who was with them. The perp said someone sold him the bikes... and gave them up without a fight. As this resolved itself a guy decided to try and run a red light right through my body about 30 seconds later in the cross walk. Just a minute after those two episodes I watched fancy boats (worth three of my homes) float on down the waterfront in a leisurely manner, and families enjoying life in the park.
This war memorial is from 1942 and right down the street in Bayfront Park. The lighting was not particlarly wonderful today, so I resorted to B&W on few photos to get something interesting from my travels. The photo below is the reflection of my hotel in the hotel across the street.
