My parents on their way to a Gala night to celebrate the club’s 49nth anniversary.

The Big Five Club has a rich history in South Florida. Former members of five of Havana’s most prestigious clubs bought the tract of land in 1967, in what was then a stretch of scrubland in unincorporated Dade off Southwest Eighth Street and 92nd Avenue.

 

Leica X1 & Processed in Capture One 9 Pro, gotta love this Kodak CMOS sensor.

“You’re stuck with me forever, Michie, get used to it. It’s the ties that bind, darlin’, the ties that bind.”

— Jim Marshall

Has it ever happened to you. You’re staring at one of your images and you absolutely fall in love with it. You feel you’ve captured that idyllic moment in just one click. Well, this is one of those frames for me.
