I started editing my Miami post (see below for progress). I thought that I had posted the cellphone photos on this site. I was wrong... so wrong. I might have uploaded them, but they certainly were never posted. Ideally, I'd like to start posting weekly again. I hate having so much time pass between blog posts. It hurts the metrics, lol!
So Miami... I was only there for 5 days but we packed so many activities in such a short period of time that it felt a lot longer. (Shoutout to my family for being my personal Uber service).
I was able to relax and just shoot instead of worrying about how it will look. I stopped trying to be so technical and just enjoyed it.
Not in order but hey :)
I was lucky enough be have gone to a Holiday Fair. I don't quite remember the name but I had a lot of fun and was able to shoot many Christmas lights.
I took this photo while we were going up on the Ferris Wheel. There were a bunch of other rides you could go on. I wasn't very adventurous that night. I'm getting old and my body can't handle the rides as it used to.
While at Miami's Art District (not the same day as the fair), we found this Asian food place. The storefront sold cute things and some candy. The backend was divided into sections for different Asian restaurants. The food looked yummy. We ended up eating somewhere else but I was glad I got to see Big John's pickled eggs, lol!
Another shot of the fair.
Close to my sister's place, there is a street called Lincoln Road. It's full of very trendy stores and the sort. I spend part of my visiting day taking photos and exploring around. Lincoln Road was currently exhibiting the work of Botero (statues above). I loved that the work was outside for everyone to experience it. And there were so many statues! I took photos of the work for hours and I'm pretty sure I didn't get to all of them.
*EDIT*: I just check the Lincoln Road site and it seems the work will be there until March 31, 2020.
Go see it if you have the chance!
Check Botero's work on the Lincoln Road webpage here: Botero
FUN FACT: Fair Food is awesome until it's not. But I did get to eat some snacks and I give them and 8/10.
There we a lot of mini-holiday models around. I wonder who made them or if they just ordered them. I always wanted to make a tiny-model. It seems fun. Tedious, but fun!
These are my Uber drivers, lol!
I believe this was taken in Wynwood, Miami's Art District. There were so many people in that patio (and mostly everywhere else) that it was really hard to take photos without having a random individual photobomb you. Still, the art was very divine. (Look at me using fancy words).
Genesis... That machine will pull so far, you WILL see Jesus.
This is the only semi-decent shot of the wheel. We got in twice. I was very happy about that.
I made a friend while adventuring... Meet Ben. lol! Ben thought I was shady and intruding into his personal space. That said, his personal space was a street corner and we were all waiting for the light to change. Sorry Ben but you bought land in a high-traffic area. Also, you are very cute. It's hard not to take a photo of you.
That is by far the most imposing Christmas tree I have ever seen. It's like BAM! I'm here. Wat up?
Second shot was at Lincoln Road. It looks a bit like my old school. Not sure how I feel about this.
I wish I could have taken a shot of this with no people around. This piece was lovely.
Magnum. See flying titties. Wear a condom.
Miami in all it's glory.
Part of our fair adventure was finding good elephant ears. I had asked my trip companions what elephant ears were and how they are different from one another. I have been given the answer many times. I don't remember any of them.
This is what happens when you bling your penguin.
I purposely made this phot back and white for the following reasons:
A- I wanted to cover up people's faces as much I can.
B- The sign looks awesome.
THE END, LOL!
I really wanted to play some games. However, I'm pretty sure they are all rigged to some degree. Also, I gave my sister my cash. So even if I wanted to play I could not. It be cool if they took Venmo, tho...
Tun, tun, tun, tun... El violador eres TU, tun, tun, tun, tun...
No idea what my mom is pointing at. But Hello Beautiful!
This model of what I think is Santa's Villages reminds me of Harry Poter. It also reminds me to put salt on my sidewalk.
*NOTE* The fair's name is Santa's Enchanted Forest.
WE HAVE A NAME!!!
I can't figure out why there was a "Lover's area" at the Enchanted Forest. I have a feeling this was a Valentine's Day preview.
My name is Eevee and I like mechanical parts in motion...
Shoutout to the lady and her family that let me invade their personal space so I could take this shot of the Enchanted Forest.
Tokyo drift anyone?
