South Beach, FL USA


= 3rd Street Life Guard Station =

A few years ago my family and I relocated to Miami, Florida for a short while and although it was not a vacation, it was hard not to feel as though we were on vacation at times - being surrounded by the fabulous Art Deco architecture, warm sunshine in the winter, miles of sandy shoreline, sailboats in the bay, scrumptious food, and photo opportunities everywhere.

One of my photography desires while we were there was to shoot some of the Art Deco and retro-styled lifeguard stations and towers along Miami's historic South Beach. Years ago when I was still living in California, a friend of mine knowing my love of architectural photography and color, gave me a few postcards with images of some of the South Beach stations. I have wanted to get up close and personal to photograph these iconic beach structures ever since.

The towers, many of which have been restored because of past hurricane damage, are fantastic colorful and whimsical structures along the shore. 
Each with its own personality.

This collection of six are my favorites.

 Each is sold individually, but as a collection they would make a bold architectural statement on a wall. Fine art prints are available. Contact me if you would like to make one or more of these your own.
