I love this long exposure of the pier at South Point. It’s true photography of Miami, the real Miami. Not too far under the Art Deco and neon rest the memories of a community that went through a lot of change. The pier is abandoned but not torn down. Just gated off so no one passes. Sometimes a lot of Miami feels like that. A place where change happened so fast that there wasn’t time to take away the old and unused. Instead we built around and over it, learning to ignore the past of the city.

Great pic. Am now 33 and I remember my teen years jumping off that pier. It was always packed on the weekend and often people showed off their diving skills…good entertainment. The days of no responsibility!
I would have loved to see that! Thanks for the comment Mario!
