Took the family yesterday on a little excursion all the way down to the Fair Grounds in Miami for the Lantern Light Festival. I was worried about it getting cancelled since it has been raining all the weekend here but, luckily for us, the weather cooperated, the rain stopped and a cool breeze made the night even nicer.
This Festival honors a millenary Chinese tradition of celebration life with beautiful lanterns, manually manufactured by skilled artisans.
Around the Rickenbacker
I woke up today at 5:00 AM to go and take some pictures at the Rickenbacker Causeway. That view of Miami from there is my absolute favorite. It always reminds me of when I arrived for the first time to the United States and saw this city for the first time thru my window. Incredible first impression.
Why to wake up so early? Simple: The light.

It’s not every day that you have the chance to meet a Queen and a King. There’s a small chance of that happening in the same day and, lucky me, it happened to me last Sunday.
The Queen made her arrival first, all the way from England, followed by the King, this time from Germany.
According to Wikipedia, Aircraft Spotting or Plane Spotting is the hobby of tracking the movement of Aircraft, which is often accomplished by Photography. Besides monitoring Aircraft, these enthusiasts (whom are usually called Plane Spotters) also record information about Airports, Air Traffic Control communications and Airlines routes.
Obviously, whenever you combine those two magic words: Aircraft & Photography, you’ll immediately have my complete attention.
Capri, this magical island, was my wife’s favorite place from our tour to Italy and it’s easy to understand why. From the moment you arrive, the wind, sea, colors, smells, all work together to make you feel like you’re, in fact, in a magical place.
She liked it so much that she looked at me and just told me that she was ready to move there, the moment I’d win the Lottery, of course…
