That Miami Life. Mondrian, Miami Beach
A spot generally only known to the locals, Marine Stadium was build on the bay in 1963 to exhibit water sports, concerts and boxing matches. It has now been closed for over 20 years and is bombed out with graffiti. If you like the eeriness of abandoned places, it’s worth a visit for sure.

Beautiful work of art by Claudia La Bianca. Unfortunately this wall recently got defaced by a tagger. A real artist would have respect for other’s work. A tagger is just a vandal spraying their shit everywhere begging for attention. Wynwood Miami
From what I understand the wall was being buffed with black paint (don’t know why) when tmnk stopped it and added his own trademarks. So the original buffer is the one in question – but I suppose part of the beauty in these pieces is that they don’t last forever. Appreciate them now!
Just swinging from a giant cable hanging from the abandoned stadium with downtown Miami in the background as the sunsets. Standard Wednesday with Danille. Miami Marine Stadium, Virginia Key Miami.

Above photo: The location of Boston Beer Company’s new brewery, ‘Concrete Beach’. It seems every week another house gets torn down and another abandoned building gets gutted to make way for a store front. 4 years ago there wasn’t even a place to grab a beer in this neighborhood (Aside from Joey’s) – even today there are only a handful of places. Wynwood is very tiny, but has a ton of potential. I think the question on everybody’s mind is will it grow into something great, or will there be a starbucks on the corner in 5 years. Developers have bought out property all over the place and the neighborhood had gotten a lot of hype in the last couple years – probably too much hype for its stage of development. Wynwood is still run down and dangerous when you get off NW 2nd Ave (I know of friends who have been robbed at gunpoint). there’s no corner stores, no supermarkets and most of the streets are still empty warehouses – yet the property values are rising like crazy. I love that Wynwood is growing, and change in inevitable. The problem, in my opinion, is that Wynwood is just an infant learning to walk but we’re giving it the keys to a sports car and expecting it to drive. With property values raising so quickly before Wynwood has a chance to get on it’s own two feet, smaller shops and creatives will have to look elsewhere. This will potentially leave Wynwood with large empty storefronts, or allowing big name retails shops into the neighborhood. Only time will tell. Wynwood Miami
Keeping busy! I’ve got another projection mapping installation coming up this weekend for the Secret Garden art walk after party in Wynwood. This will be a good one, friends Jeremy Ismael, Gran Moxy, Atom Yard, and Alex Ohashi will be on the decks keeping everyone moving- Saturady! Free entry before 10pm with RSVP here.

This March marks a significant month in my life at the moment. Not only is it my big birthday month (30!), but it was two years ago this month when I decided (or life decided for me..) that I would attempt to work 100% as a full time freelancer. In having control over my own schedule and escaping office politics, I often have to remind myself that this is real life. Along with that, it’s also two years ago this month when I started living a more active lifestyle focusing on my health. So to celebrate my 30th and two years of owning my life, I’m going to revisit Costa Rica for a few weeks to do what I love most – documenting life. March 2014
