Your typical Ocean Drive pic. I used to watch Miami Vice and Scarface but even without the yeyo, a Testarossa or a chainsaw this place is entertaining. During the day lots of young beautiful people are doing sports or are just walking around being beautiful. At night you sip your $14 cocktail and watch all these expensive cars go by while you're trying to look cool choking on your cheap cigar. When you run out of money you go back to your stink hostel on Washington Ave.

I love this "ocean drive boulevard", the "art deco" style there, this is a so well known picture that you show us Gilbert, "the colony" ... and the "clevelander" is not that far ;)
Thanks for this moment, always a pleasure for me to see a pic of Miami :)

Nice vivid colours, especially the blue in the left.
Give the DRI method a try, I am sure you will be satisfied with the results.

Good crisp night shot... you've been able to use the lights well here without letting them go overboard. Also, good idea to have found a place with contrasting colors beside each other.
Funny note you've written! ;)

Ah, the Colony, one I have in my film archives but quality after scanning is so poor I won't dare posting it here, nice night picture where I appreciate the angle giving some diagonal perspective and the light glowing from the building, considering the price they charge here, I think they could invest some money to fix the "O" ;-))
Have a nice week end,
