    Great post, just that I was a bit late to catch on this, since I got back to the Bay area by the time this was posted.

    Nevertheless was lucky to get to #3, #6. Missed #1, #4, may be the next time I visit.

    Also felt Ricken Backer causeway provided a good vantage location for the skyline

    Idk where that Best Buy spot is at. I went there but I got a closer shot from the parking structure. This shot seems as if it’s much more behind the parking structure. Where exactly I’m the parking structure? I went all the way to the top and went to the furthest corner and still ended up much closer. Unless I was in the wrong structure lol I also went to LAZ parking and couldn’t find any spot to take that shot so I’m lost at this point lol

  • Where the AC units are. Walk around you will find it. Im not sure what the LAZ parking is…

  • Andy says:

    Tried the top floor of the Best Buy parking this week. Before I was able to get a shot, a security guard asked me to leave…advising that the top floor is private property.

  • Andy says:

    I drove up, parked in the far west corner…started to set up my shot over the wall when security came to stop me. I’ll try again sometime

  • George says:

    Great photos Edin. I will be in Coral Springs in early June and will definitely go photograph some of the views you share. Thank you for sharing and all the best to you!

  • Thank you Edinchavez Photography! Even as a Miami resident, I discovered places I had never considered those photography shots. I really appreciate your efforts!

  • George says:

    Edin, as a newbie photographer I wanted to thank you for helping me make my daughter’s birthday photshoot a success. I used one of the locations and had lots of fun. Forever an admirer of your work. Thanks for sharing!

  • Michael says:

    I like #7 my fiance and I are going to do our engagement session there, I’m just trying to picture us in that shot, do you think a season photographer will make it work? Do u have to be directly under the bridge, went by there this morning and it looks like there’s a construction crew doing work.

    • edin chavez says:

      Hi Michael, unfortunately, they just closed it and are doing some type of construction. I am not sure when I will be open again. However, you can still go on top of the bridge and get a shot of the skyline. If you want a different vantage point of the skyline, try the Venitian Causeway #4. Hope that helps.
