Changes in latitude
Well after a few days in Miami I am back home. To go from 80ºF with the sound of a Lamborghini driving by to 40ºF with the sound of a four-color Cavalier driving by is too much of a culture shock 🙂 . Regardless, I had a good time with my wife and enjoyed the change in scenery.
I didn’t get too crazy with the photography while I was there. It was meant to be more of a vacation and my photos were more or less along the touristy lines. Judging from what people were taking photos of, I imagine everybody will have the same shots, so I’ll try not to bore you with those. Although I did see lots of potential photos, especially in the older neighborhoods I had to restrain myself and focus on relaxing. Add in the fact that I only took the Lumix GX1 camera with the 14-42 kit lens which sort of limited me from getting too radical. I admit it performed admirably, but I really could have used wider angle and telephoto lenses in a lot of situations to make more dramatic photos. A lens with a faster aperture would have come in handy also. Something I’ll have to remember for my next trip.
I’ll be posting a few photos from the past week during the next few days as I get around to processing them. Until then I’ll start off with a scene I spotted on a side street while turning around (trying to use GPS in traffic doesn’t always work quick enough). I had to get the shot because, where I live, the cars sitting in yards are a slightly more downscale. 😦 I went with a more extreme processing on it because I thought it warranted a more surreal look.
