I’ve forgotten why we had wandered up to this part of Southbeach but I found this to be an interesting building. I wasn’t sure at first what it was until we crossed the street and found that it was a very expensive steak restaurant. For the prices they were charging I sure hope the meat was quality… too rich for us but they did have some fantastic offerings.
This side of the building (not including the traffic cone) had a great island vibe to it. Which version speaks to you?
If they had bullfighting South Beach, it might be like the restaurants at the edge of the bullring in Madrid — fresh bull is quite expensive. Maybe’s it’s a “field to fork” type place, where they are out back chasing down the cow after you order. Pricy restaurants are a bit of a mystery to me.
Fresh bull? Ummmm I’ll pass.
The black and white version. Looks like 1950’s Florida.
Thanks. Kind of reminds me of Hemmingway’s Havana…
I’m going with the color one – because the color is not that vivid and the green in the trees gives a bit more depth to the shot…
While I agree with you, the shading of the trees in b&w give some depth to the image too.
Both photos are beautiful, but I really like the color one because the trees stand out more against the white building!
Awesome image!! The black and white looks awesome, it looks oldies and cool. The colored image is good too but that traffic cone’s orange color somehow stands out more than the building – imho 🙂
Good point. I thought about cloning out the cone but street is as street is 🙂
