I'll post my version when I get them developed. Were you downtown for the fireworks? Did you see the big "One" spelled out on One Miami?

Here's an oldy from me, but one of my favorites.

^ Great picture, very Manhattan-esque.

I didn't get to make it downtown on the 4th... too many other things going on. Did you get a picture of the "One"?

A picture of a Miami-Dade Fire Rescue engine. I've always loved the lime-green color. They feel so tropical, so "Miami" (even though City of Miami uses traditional red). MDFR vehicles are lime-green to help them stand out better in traffic.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue serves 30 of 35 municipalities and all of unincorporated Miami-Dade County. It's the largest fire department in the Southeast and the 7th largest in the United States.

maybe it's the angle but I was expecting more of a Chicago style grid.

It's the angle, which is northwesterly. If you look at the upper 3/4 of the picture, you'll see the MIA control tower. Check the bottom left and you can see more defined parallel lighting. Channel 10 used to end their nighttime news broadcast with a westward view from the Wachovia Tower... it's more what you were thinking.

Bank of America Tower is green right now... I'm trying to think what holiday it might be... :) Sure isn't St. Patrick's Day.

Cool thread!  I don't have any pics of Miami, so I'll just read.<{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Palm Beach County pics are more than welcome.

The Performing Arts Center, under construction, viewed from the Bay.

It's going to look really nice when it is finished.

This is a picture that Brickell posted earlier... thought I would bring out the color in it as much as possible to see how the picture would look.
