A couple of weekends ago I made a quick trip to Miami for a friend’s wedding. So happy for them and was looking forward to some sunshine and warmth. Well, I got one of the two – it was so cold, seriously, about the same temps as Chicago. Oh well, a change of scenery is […]

Great Architecture in the Miami Design District

One of the highlights of our upcoming Miami workshop is definitely the Miami Design District. Located north of the city center, it’s an outdoor shopping center with luxury brands.

Miami Workshop Recap, Day 2 – 2019

Our second day in Miami began with sunrise at Watson Island. We were greeted by an enormous cruise ship blocking the view of the city, so instead of cityscape shots, I photographed more clouds behind me. Again, I’ll share those soon.
