Miami has a very distinct identity. It keeps producing buildings that are completely playful and geometric and in tune with it's streamline modern and art-deco heritage. Miami knows what it is and is confident to display all the facets of what a bold and daring city it is. Cities like Manhattan, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Boston have very strong historic identities but lately I am thinking they are actually borrowing ideas from Miami.

And I also believe our architecture reflects our subtropical (almost tropical) climate. We have skyscrapers that to me look like storybook castles.

I couldn't get the pictures I wanted because of the clouds and rain, but at least you get the perspective, and you can see the buildings in context with each other. That is what I wanted to show anyway. I don't really care if it's not a great photograph. Damn! Don't I take enough of those - like that last one of the Marquis? That one I really nailed!

Miami was awesome! It so different from my city (SF) and the vibe. I had a hard time with the humidity and too much sweating. Overall, I like it. Also, I hated your turn pike tolls and MANY toll gates in your freeways. I hope to be back again next year!
