On our third night in Miami we decided to take in the famed Art Deco District. The Miami Beach Architectural District (also known as the Miami Art Deco District) is a U.S. historic district located in the South Beach neighborhood of Miami Beach, Florida. The district is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Sixth Street to the south, Alton Road to the west, the Collins Canal and Dade Boulevard to the north. It contains 960 historic buildings.
We only walked a little way through the most popular section, and although I brought my tripod, all of these images are taken handheld with the Fuji X-E2.
It was hot and muggy and lots of people were out and about. Making it hard to get great shots, but these photos turned out pretty good.
I am not sure what this first building is but it was nicely lit when we were walking towards the ocean and the neon lights of the hotels.
If you are old enough you would have seen many of these hotels in Miami Vice. I remember the Colony in particular.
This is one of my favorites from the night. I got lucky that there was a nice break in traffic when we walked by and I was able to get both the car and the neon sign.
The Breakwater is my second favorite photo from the night, I liked colors of the lights and the sky in the background.
We have more photos from Miami on our travel blog The Expat Experiment. On our last day we took in the Miami Open Air City Tour.
