Helicopter over Miami!

I did some more work on the Miami Marine Stadium last Thursday, and Friends of Marine Stadium put me on a helicopter for free to do it. It was my first time on a helicopter, and it was free because of my aerial photography skills.

Yes, thank you! Miami's skyline consists predominantly of 21st century architecture.

Thanks, Christos! There is more to come to be photographed in this decade. Can hardly wait. The over-building from the last decade has been quickly absorbed, and new projects are ready to begin again. Interest in future development here in Miami remains strong.

What sets this aerial shoot apart from my others is the fact that it was the first time I've shot from a helicopter and I went more into the interior of the city. Below is a set of photos from above our Wynwood District in west Midtown Miami. These we call the Wynwood Walls. They are becoming quite a tourist attraction for the street art.

Thanks! More to come in this decade. I think Banco Santander still has a tower (840 feet) planned for our financial district set to start construction late 2013 or early 2014. Then, One Bayfront Plaza (1,010 feet) is scheduled to start construction in 2015. Brickell Citicenter is already under construction (634 feet and three more just over 500 feet in one huge mixed-use complex).

Meantime, enjoy some more street art.

Amazing Indeed ...

We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

Thanks! I love doing aerial shots of skyscrapers. I usually do them with Miami Seaplane tours, the best way to see Miami. You can see the plane coming into port in the first photo left and center.
