Hi folks, tonight is a first for me, maybe the club! A trip to South Beach for a sunset and architectural photography of the beautiful Art Deco buildings along Ocean Drive. I have always wanted to photograph them and hopefully you want to as well.
We'll meet at 6pm at the South Pointe area of Miami Beach (exact location to follow) and proceed to a location for the sunset. Perhaps the South Pointe park walkway OR even along the Miami Beach Marina, some place nice spot to view the sunset. The sun will be setting around 7:10pm just a bit south of due-west.
From there we'll walk over to Ocean Drive and mosey our way north. I think getting a few of the more obscure, but still beautiful, art deco buildings in the soft after-sunset light will be nice, and then as we head further north we'll get the more popular buildings all lit in their glorious neon. As of now (8/6/18) I know absolutely nothing about this but hope to learn more so as to come up with a great walk of South Beach. When I have a firm plan, I'll update this listing.
As far as parking goes, (I'm rolling my eyes here) your guess is as good as mine. I found out the parking area near South Pointe sometimes closes at night for private parking and they can charge a one time fee of $20 on weekends. The Smith & Wollensky restaurant is right there so they also have their area that is roped off. I think the best course of action is to find a good safe parking garage and take an Uber to the South Pointe Park. Unless someone has a better idea. Maybe a bus? If I find a better way, I'll let you all know.
