This week I inaugurated a new place to call home. Its smaller than were I was but these days size is not a major factor me and fiance, instead location, location, locaction. I’m the heart of Miami, a city called Coral Gables, a small city within a city, and home to the University of Miami Hurricanes, Billy Joel’s famous Miracle Mile, and many other sites.

Changes

The architecture is rich and old spanish is the main theme, in short, stunning and gorgeous. Just outside the Gables, the famous political pit stop for all politicians, local and presidential. Yes Newt, Romney, Santorum, and Obama have all passed by and drank “cafecito” there in an attempt to engratiate themselves with the local electorate – the famous Versailles Restaurant. Little Havana is a short 3 min drive away to the east and Downtown Miami a little further east as well. To say that I’m excited at the photographic opportunities in this new area is an understatement.

Photographically Speaking

This week I finally got a chance to persuse some old Pinboard bookmarks and I got a chance to watch Chris Week’s incredible documentary titled Documenting the Human Condition. If you have not seen these series, set aside 30min and watch it, its a total of 3 videos and you’ll gain some new insights. I know I learned a thing or two.
