South Beach Ocean Drive at Night, 1995

This photo comes from a walk on the beach, the camera steadied by placing it on top of one of those sheet-metal equipment boxes the chaise-lounge concessionaires use. This was only about three years after Hurricane Andrew and the dunes hadn’t been built up the way they are now; there was a clear view of Ocean Drive with its Deco and neon.

Technically this isn’t a very good image, particularly as compared to the photos I make now, but I love the way it looks. As this is one of my more frequently stolen images it would appear that other people agree.

Technical Details: Olympus Stylus Zoom film P&S camera with drugstore-brand (Agfa?) color print film.
