In the Miami Beach Watercolors series, there was a small window of opportunity. Once the clouds and rain had passed, the streetss quickly dried up.
When the rain comes, they run and hide their head…
Lennon & McCartney
The Watercolors series was an accidental solution to trying to deal with less than “ideal” weather while in Prague. I would often take a gamble and head out with my rain gear at the first sign of rain drops – the exception was if the clouds looked like a deluge or an impending armageddon. Once out, I usually focus on looking at the reflections on the street, but in Miami they often vanished within minutes. The light coloured roads and sidewalks added a different dynamic to the images I shot around Miami Beach.
Almost everything strange washes up near Miami.
