Living in South Florida I will admit I take for granted all the Miami attractions that the out of town tourists flock to. I figured why not take a day to be a tourist in my own city. I wanted to experience what out of town people come to Miami for. The beaches, the nightlife, the beautiful weather. I was going to be a tourist for once and check out all the things to do in downtown Miami and Miami Beach.
After visiting Vizcaya for the first time two months ago to help photograph a wedding there, I’ve been itching to go back and photograph it myself. Vizcaya is located on Biscayne Bay in Coconut Grove, FL. It was the former home of James Deering who basically created these elaborate gardens and built a villa inspired by Italian Renaissance architecture. It’s absolutely beautiful.
