Where: Miami Beach, FL
Between Meeting: After Photoshop World
A few years ago Photoshop World was held in Miami Beach. While South Beach comes alive with color and crowds during the afternoon and well into the night, there is a different vibe earlier in the day.
The mornings are quiet and the people on the street are a mix of locals and the less fortunate.
I met this man around 7am on Ocean Drive. Instead of a quick, “Hey can I take your picture”, I struck up a conversation about how the blue colors he was wearing connected with the blue paint of the art deco hotel behind him. That broke the ice, enabling me to make a picture that tells a story about this man’s experiences.
