Purple palm trees!

I thought I would post a nice colorful photo for this weekend. A night-time street scene on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach. I would think a thousand other tourists have a similar shot, but nobody I saw walking by with cameras bothered to point it in the same direction. It’s not often that I make the attempt at an after dark photo, mostly because where I live it doesn’t look any better after dark, so why bother? But how can one resist the vibrant South Beach color? I had a tiny tabletop tripod with me but it lost a set screw so it wasn’t working too well, so I set the unit on a wall and steadied it with hand pressure for the 2.5 second exposure. Fortunately the wall was in the right place!
