Wow! Thanks! This is actually my fourth Miami pics thread. The difference here is that I incorporated more of the grit along with the glamour after Palermodude challenged me with presenting a false image of Miami. I've taken hundreds of pics. Tell me what you would like to see more of.

Great job. Beautiful shots;
How about some pictures that include more street life with your architectural shots in the background?
Well-frequented city parks?
More train platform pictures...

You have a huge choice of locations, if you need specifics, let me know. This is the best Miami thread in a long long time.

Personally I like the street shots too with lots of people. There are a couple China related threads that have extensive street level shots. Like your work though, and please be careful in the ultralight, wouldn't want you to crash into any pelicans or anything trying to get a good shot.

Thanks! I don't have a lot of street level shots with a lot of people because they tend to get in the way while I'm trying to shoot skyscrapers. I shoot mostly on the weekends when there are fewer people and I can get angles from the street without getting run over. My pilot with the ultralight is very good and has learned what kind of shots to get into position for. I explain my routes to him and my objectives, and he maps them out.

This set below was taken from the roof of Oceanside Extended Care on South Beach where my mother is in rehab. When she's up to it, I want to bring her up in a wheelchair and have her model for me as she presents the new Miami.

This is what happened on my first attempt at aerial photography from the ultralight. A bit scary to say the least.

I love alley shots like these with skyscrapers at the end. This is where South Beach reminds me so much of San Francisco the way Dave8721 said, but this vista below from the streets is real sweet! I think it's Michigan Avenue. I forgot to look.

Great job on the Sobe alleyways, Sobe density, and some beautiful shots of the building where I live.
For those that do not live here, people *do* walk in Miami. The weather here is fantastic and there are alot of sidewalk cafés. Here is a non-exhaustive list of neighborhoods with street life:

Corner of Washington and Lincoln
Lincoln
Washington
Collins
Ocean
West Ave.
North Beach
Surfside
South Pointe Park
Margaret Pace Park
Española
Omni
Bayside
MDC-Wolfson
Govt. Center
Flagler
Cultural Center
SW 1st
SW 8th
S. Miami Ave.
Brickell Ave.
Brickell Park
Brickell Promenade
Vizcaya
Center of Gables
The Grove
The park in the Grove
Dadeland Station
South Miami Station
MDC-Kendall
FIU
Little Haiti
4th Ct.
Hialeah

...what am I missing?

I have lived in a few world cities, so I know what street life is. Miami has it in the above areas, although the density is less than in other worldly cities.

In Miami, like many cities, the walkable neighborhoods usually contain many pretty girls ... maybe that's what the people want to see - shots of hot women walking...

I'm very partial toward aerial shots. I never saw myself doing my own aerial photos until the day I actually did it. Can hardly wait to do another aerial assault on the skyline.

I have been in Miami, and it's not similar to China in that regard, I don't think you'll find a massive street presence in downtown Miami yet. Still, there are other areas like SoBe and Conutgrove. I think that the Miami World Center development would make a vast improvement in the life of downtown.

I could suggest improvements like a) less private space along waterfronts and more public retail/pedestrian paths/cafes b) more retail downtown. I think that really help.
