The Architect's Dilema
While shooting the abandoned Miami Marine Stadium, I saw a good shot that could be taken from a catwalk over the seats while climbing up to the roof. So I hollered over to Michael to come over and sit in one of the seats for me for the shot.
I'd known Micheal as Ventri on Flickr from DMU for a while before coming out to Miami. He had an amazing eye for architecture and had begun shooting neon as well. But during the trip I got to know him a lot better -- shooting with him on several outings and especially driving around with him all day and night on Saturday. He's one of the nicest genuine people I've met and I really enjoyed being able to spend as much time with him as I did.
