The Hyatt Regency Miami, where the conference was being held, was just a couple of blocks from the Miami Riverwalk and Bayfront Park and splat in the middle of downtown, the ideal location for me. I could have easily stayed there for a few weeks if I didn’t have responsibilities (and pussy cats) waiting for me at home.
Just sorting through these photos makes me want to go back tomorrow! I’m already feeling the humidity which really wasn’t that bad after the first day.
I loved this sculpture. Why didn’t I get a better photo of it? Aaaarghhhh…
Below is the detail of the base. I messed with it in Photoshop and this became my winning photo for the Members’ Theme in the Culver City Art Group 2013 Holiday Show, “Abstract Patterns.” I’ll be posting about the art show later.
Wouldn’t ya love to spend a week cruising on this baby? The Grand Luxe.
My reflection in a polished chrome sculpture. Below is another view of the same sculpture.
I should have taken another photo of the sculpture from a ways back so you could see the thing in context. After reading the blog post at Pride in Photos: A Story Teller’s Mind Set I am much more mindful of this concept. Thank you Laurie!
Statue of the Mother of Miami in Bayfront Park, Julia Tuttle, who was honored with this sculpture in 2010. Her skirt tells the story of the founding of the city. You can read her full story here on Wikipedia.
Claude D. Pepper represented Florida in the United States Senate from November 4, 1936, to January 3, 1951, and the Miami area in the United States House of Representatives from January 3, 1963 until his death on May 30, 1989.
