Wynwood through my Eyes (Lens)

Through My Lens, Travel

I live for colorful walls/places, beautiful artsy cities, and living art so as soon as I found out about the Miami art district, I have wanted to go there. I recently visited  and I was not disappointed.

The streets were filled with more people than I thought, the warm air smelled of food, occasional cigarette smoke, and something new. You know like when you just bought new clothes or new shoes. It was pretty hot, 92 degrees Fahrenheit; But it’s Florida, I am used to it, and who cares!   Colors! Colors everywhere! art galleries, fashion boutiques, food, beautiful stores, and so on. I walked around for a while, rested, then walked some more. I took a lot of pictures of course and was completely amazed by the art and even the people there. There is something about walking on the streets and just “vibing” to the beauty around.

I mean look at these colorful walls!

And to beautiful patterned walls!

I don’t know who the artists are, but in my head we are best friends or even family because so much talent! I hope they are all getting the recognition they deserve somewhere as beautiful as their art. I usually see God everywhere, especially in the gifts He gave humans and I can say I saw as much in Wynwood.

There also were quotes everywhere along with little sayings here and there where you’d least expect it… on the floors and walls. Here are some of my favorite.

I also spotted some lovers’ locks by a store and my mother mentioned that bridge that used to be full of locks somewhere in France.

Here are a couple more pictures. I hope they’ll make you smile!

 

I will certainly go back for one of these tours that they usually have at night or before real life kicks in to remind me that I am not as care free as I thought. Feel free to join me!! We can be exploring buddies!

Until then,

Love

Through My Lens

In celebration of black girl magic, blackness, and queen things, here are the pictures from a shoot I did for my friend Zakeima. All natural and genuine.

I find that people become more comfortable during a shoot when we are having conversations. I think that keeps them from thinking about a camera being pointed at them and they forget to be awkward or shy. They also genuinely laugh or smile and to me the captured candid moments are the best ones.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

Love,

Lori
