UNDER THE PIER

One boring weekend a few years ago, I decided to go joy riding with a friend until we found ourselves at the Dania Beach Fishing Pier in Dania Beach, Florida. The pier was filled with fishing enthusiasts holding on to their precious fishing rods while competing with pelicans and seagulls for the good catch. Good thing I brought my DSLR with me that day so I was able to capture photos of the birds, the fishes, the people, the pier and the emerald waters of the Atlantic. I then went down to the sand to continue taking photos and found myself under the pier facing it’s entire length stretching out into the water. The ocean was a little rough that day so there were a lot of surf as the waters crashed on the sand as well as on the concrete beams of the pier. I took multiple shots from the same spot and this one captured the waves so well including the water sprays showing a lot of movement and fluidity in the photo. I’ve had this photo for a while now and I only came to appreciate this work of mine very recently…hope you guys like this too!

MIAMI LIGHTS

Miami is one of the most diverse and exciting cities in the United States. Imagine my jubilation when my employer informed me that my job assignment was in this vibrant and colorful city. Before I moved to my new home in Fort Lauderdale, a city few minutes north of Miami, I used to live in this amazing bayside neighborhood called Midtown Miami right by the Design District.  In fact, my old apartment building is the fourth one from the right (refer to photo) close to restaurants, art galleries, design shops and high end designer stores.  I felt very lucky to wake up every morning with a spectacular view of the bay, the causeway and Miami Beach across the water. I also get to eat breakfast at my balcony while watching the sun climb up the horizon.  However, life, love and work happily moved me to another part of South Florida.  Miami was my first home in the United States….and I will always consider myself a “Miamian” by heart!
