2009 April, Miami, FL: Sunny South Beach Florida. My first trip to the Sunshine State and I loved it. Hopefully my images will do it justice as this place is beautiful day or night with tons going on. the waters were a bit cold for a comfortable swim in the Atlantic but it was March after all so that’s natural. We still managed to get in some beach time cold water or not I wasn’t going to waste my opportunity here in Miami. After all, you never know if you’ll make it back or not. Hope you enjoy.

No introduction needed I'm sure. However they were closed and were now offering tattoos two doors down in another parlor which I think they they now own.

Ocean Drive:  ”Neon Nights”
This is where the beautiful people hang out and where all the action is in South Beach. I decided to go check out all the action after dark so I could get all the neon colors the hotels are lit up with.

"Say hello to my little Friend"  Johnny Rocket's is now the name of the business that the chainsaw scene from Scarface was filmed. The staircase on the left is where they walked up to go to the apartment.
