The Day After Hurricane Irma

I have been through a few hurricanes since moving to South Florida, but I haven't seen anything like Hurricane Irma. Even though the eye of the storm was over one hundred miles away from Miami, the storm was so big, it covered the entire state and it was moving slowly. The area was hit with strong winds for over twenty four hours. It seemed like it would never end.

Many areas of the state were hit much harder than South Florida, but the damage in the area is significant. 

Yesterday, the day after the storm, I went to the Brickell area of Miami that was impacted by both the wind and the storm surge. The majority of traffic lights were out, many people without power and water which is predicted to possibly last for months. 

A major clean up has already begun and with time, things will return to a relative normal here in South Florida. We have a lot to be thankful for. 

A Morning At Central Park In Old Havana

The Central Park of Havana is one of the most known and central sites in Havana. It is also one of the busiest place in Havana.

Among the buildings surrounding the park are The Great Theatre of Havana Alicia Alonso, el Hotel Inglaterra, la Manzana de Gómez and The National Museum of Fine Arts of Havana and the Capitolo building is across the street.

The statue of José Martí in the center of the park depicts him delivering a speech to the Cuban people.

Sunrise at South Pointe in Miami Beach

South Pointe is located on Government Cut and is the southernmost location in Miami Beach. The South Pointe Pier is a popular tourist destination that offers a wide view north to South Beach and west to downtown Miami. 

An early morning on Memorial Weekend before the crowds arrived was a perfect time to do a little shooting..
