I hate this about Miami

I hate this about Miami

I love Miami, the ocean, the architecture, the boats, beautiful people everywhere, the kickback beach life style. I can go on and on and on about the things I love about this place, that’s why I moved here.

Hear me out, there is one major thing about Miami that I truly, truly hate. I has bothered me since the day I got here, and it seems to be getting worse before it gets any better. How does this relate to my photography?

1. It is a place I take a lot of photos from, and bring lots of out of town friends to take pictures.

2. It is changing everything around me (us) and its also changing what is in my photos.

Here is the video:

I shot this picture from this exact location.

At first this event sounded like a good idea, perhaps if you are young and like to party this could be for you. I personally do not like large crowds and rather spend time on the beach alone or with a close group of friends.

This event is called Floatopia and its supposed to raise awareness about painting the beaches clean and pollution. Let me tell you it did just the opposite.

Here is a video and some aerial photos of the actual party. 100,000+ people showed up.

What do you think? Crazy right how we can just destroy our own planet.

I felt compelled to make this videos and take this photos in order to create awareness. We must stop this madness and take care of the planet we live in.
