New Lifeguard Towers in Miami Beach

The new lifeguard towers in Miami Beach are almost completed, it has taken a long time but they look really really good. I am happy I was able to photograph all of the old ones. Its always nice going out there and seeing a new one in place of an old one. Even though I love vintage stuff, the old ones were falling apart. I am working on a new series that will be up soon with these life guard towers.

Here is the old one shot a few moths back:
Long Exposures 17 of 36

And the new one:
Sunrise 26 of 133

Miami Beach Sunrise

4 am I open my eyes, I look at the clock and realize I am not going back to bed. I turn on the tv and its forensic files, I look at the clock and its 5:30 am. At this point I’m thinking about the ocean and an amazing sunrise but I’m glued to my bed, next thing you know I get this image in my head. I look at the clock ant its 6:15am. I jump out of bed throw on some shorts grab my camera and go to the beach. The sky was perfect.

The first image is what I had in my head while laying in my bed, but when I got there and I started walking around I realized there was lots more potential and more awesome angles to be had.


The clouds were moving and the colors were saturated and alive. Next thing you know people started coming from all directions.


Everyone just wanted a peek of the sunrise…






Once I took all my photos and took all this in I picked up my bike form the sand and started walking away, then I turned my head and had to pull out my camera for one last shot…


If this isn’t the start of a perfect day I don’t know what is. Which one is your favorite photo? I made a video on editing this photos, it will be up shortly….
