Secret Spot to Scenic Pictures in Miami

Just found this spot for taking really unique pictures in Miami. It’s great for portrait photography with a small budget but have the look of having traveled to an exotic location. Located about 30 minutes from Downtown Miami, The Secret Garden is a lush outdoor studio that makes pictures extraordinary. We had a FREE tour of the property and these reconnaissance photos of the property. Below is the address to the Secret Garden but note that outside its Labeled The Coral Garden so be careful to not get confused like we did. Check out some of the pictures we took at this exotic location just minutes from Miami.

Yoga Artist “Bombs” the Beautiful City of Miami

Yoga Artist “Bombs” the Beautiful City of Miami

Founder of Wynwood Tony Goldman once said that real estate was his away of saying “I was Here” to future generations long after his death. “Bombing” is a term used in the graffiti world for the act of leaving your mark across the city. Yoga Artist, Pablo Milian has found a unique and personal way of leaving his mark around the city of Miami. He doesn’t spray paint walls rather places himself in graceful Yoga inspired acrobatic poses all across the city and captures the moment in photos. From scenic backgrounds to architectural structures, the next interesting location for an acrobatic photo is always a brainstorm in his mind.  We had the pleasure of meeting up with Pablo and capturing him in action. We sent ArtofMiami.com’s own Miami Photographer Harold Rosario to collaborate with Pablo and the photos were amazing. Take a look below at some cutting edge photos of Pablo Milian at some unique places in our city of Miami. For more photo of the Pablos acrobatic and yoga artistry click here for his Instagram.

Most Scenic Restaurant in Miami Perfect for Mothers Day

Most Scenic Restaurant in Miami Perfect for Mothers Day

We found the perfect restaurant to take your mom out for MOther’s Day. It has what I thin is the most scenic view out of all restaurants  in the Miami area. Its called Beach Bar at Newport Pier. Call 5 minutes ahead of arrival to get a seaside seating on the pier. When we went the weather was perfect. South easterly winds made the waters calm and transparent. The menu for non-seafood eaters at Beach Bar is limited but seafood choices are plentiful . Since I’m allergic to seafood it is imperative to have my meal cooked on a separate pan and or grill. The staff is always more than pleased to accommodate my needs.

The scenic Beach Bart at Newport restaurant in Miami epic by Harold Rosario

We took my mother in law for a late lunch and she loved it. “Its like going on a mini vacation” were her words. Trust me, go at noon or mid after noon, this is the time the waters are a brilliant turquoise and picture opportunities are optimum. One last thing. If parking is scarce, park at the Newport Hotel next door. Its $10 if you spend at least $50 at eh restaurant. Check out the video of our experience at Beach Bar at Newport Beach. Press play below.

Photos of the Frost Science Museum (Social Night at the Frost)

Tuesday  we had a great time at  the new Frost Science Museum which hosted its first social event by invitation only and sponsored by the Miami Downtown and Development Authority. Our first experience and what came to be the highlight of the night was the planetarium’s 4D experience. It took us on a virtual tour of our galaxy. We flew through space, pass our neighboring planets to then finally pierce the earth’s atmosphere. As we made our approach to the city of Miami the crowd cheered with pride. I am getting goose bumps as I write this, for that moment was quite dramatic. Unfortunately the audience was left with a taste for more. A sneak peak of the 4-d 8k visual display was all we were going to get.

Groupon Deal Of the Month – Taste Buds of India

Groupon Deal Of the Month – Taste Buds of India

What better way to try out the new Sony A6500 mirrorless camera than with some beautiful and colorful cuisine. This month we recommend you guys to try the new Taste Buds of India location in Coral Gables. Groupon is running a great deal which comes out to pretty much 40% of the bill. Located right on Ponce de Leon boulevard, the new location is more inviting than the others, yet its intimate small pleasant environment. As artists we love the presentation of the food and we think you guys will appreciate it too.

What to order

  1. We recommend you try the Lamb or Chicken Korma. Its savory some what stew with cream semi sweet sauce.
  2. Our second recommendation is the Chicken Tikka Masala. Almost like an Italian dish with an Indian twist. If you love Italian food the sauce in this tomato based dish will have you liking your fingers. Which leads me to our third recommendation, butter naan.
  3. Indian tradition uses flat bread as a sort of eatable utensil to eat food with your hands. Order the butter naan and don’t be shy to tear a small piece of naan to scoop up the main course and transport the flavors to your… well… taste buds. Ha ha. Enjoy the picture below taken with the Sony a6500 and 35mm 1.8 lens
  4. *As always, all opinions are my own. We were NOT payed in any way for the mentions of any product or services in the post.
