World Wide Instameet Hosted by ArtofMiami.com and The Coral Gables Museum May 17.2014
This weekend was Instagram’s WorldWide Instameet 9. We at Art of Miami, along with The Coral Gables Museum hosted our proposal for the WorldWide event Miami edition. The chosen spot was Coral Gables for its undeniable photogenic Mediterranean Revival Architecture and for it not been chosen in past meets.
A good omen to a great day that awaited us was the picture perfect weather (pun intended), a cool 67 degrees on a mid May morning. Which resulted in a fantastic turn out of 30 plus Instagrammers meeting together to learn, share, and collaborate with one another. We met at The Coral Gables Museum, the director Chris Rupp kindly offered participants free entry and a historic walking tour, led by our knowledgable and fashion savvy tour guide, Patrick. We spend the after noon strolling through old city blocks, snapping pictures, while at the same time taking mental notes of interesting tidbits of Coral Gables that Patrick offered us.This might come in handy at a cocktail party or two in the near future you know. The tour culminated at the Leica Store Miami which brought joy to Leica Camera enthusiasts in our group. As we parted ways I reminded everyone of the hashtag #Instameet_citybeautifu to be used for our groups pictures to be filed under on Instagram.
