Under the Miami Marine Stadium case for iPhone 4/4S by 


This is a current picture of the incredible and beautiful Miami Marine Stadium on Virginia Key, home to boat races, Jimmy Buffet concerts, fireworks shows, and Easter services when I was growing up on nearby Key Biscayne, just offshore from downtown Miami, Florida.

The classic building, built in 1962, is currently abandoned. The building sustained some (although many argue very little) damage in Hurricane Andrew, and was closed by the City of Miami. In recent years, it’s been listed for demolition. A grassroots group called the Friends of the Miami Marine Stadium is working to save and resurrect it to it’s past glory.

20% of proceeds from this image will be donated to the Friends of the Marine Stadium.

This building was the local nuclear fallout shelter for residents of Key Biscayne. I remember being at the stadium when an air raid drill was run in the early 70’s.

Taken using a Canon 5DMKII, Tamron 28-300 VC lens, as three exposures, processed in Photomatix and Aperture.

I’m a Miami, Florida-based photographer. I and my camera try to get out as often as possible. These images are the result. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

If you like my images enough to buy them, please know that the income goes back into the art. Thanks for visiting!
