South Beach

  1. I lived on South Beach from 1980 to 1993 and saw it go from a quiet paradise where you could rent a one bedroom apartment on Ocean Drive for $400 a month and have dinner at the R&R for $4 to a mad, swirling non-stop party where a shot of whiskey cost $10... if you could find a place to park.

    These were taken in the mid-80s before the crowds arrived. They were originally shot on film with an FE2 and a 28mm f3.5 lens. I recently copied them, as a test, with a D100 and 60mm micro. All things considered, I would say that chromes and negs can be very successfully copied with a digital camera and a light table. A more elaborate set-up could possibly yield better copies and streamline copying lots of images.

    I always loved that lens...

  3. Yea, South Miami Beach... that island city off the coast of Miami.

    Despite what the tourist industry implies, Miami Beach is NOT a strip of sand along the coast of the city of Miami. It's a self-governing city island connected to the mainland by causeways.
