The simplest things, the ones we take for granted, matter the most. Mobility. Belonging. Being inside versus outside. I’m making no judgments as to the scene depicted, except that it spurred the thought. At least he’s out and about, no?
But, to misquote the great philosopher, Shrek, better in than out.
These are just two of the store-front window shots I took along Washington Avenue in Miami Beach. Despite the beauty of the city, there is a definite seediness of Wash Ave, to which the tattoo shops, big-fake-titted womannequins, vaping shops, and unrestored Art Deco buildings contribute a great deal. In other words, it’s a fun place to shoot, but not much fun to walk around alone.
