    Tower Of Freedom

    Tower Of Freedom - The Freedom Tower ( centered ) in downtown Miami is an example of a Revival styled structure with design elements borrowed from the Giralda in Seville, Spain.

    Originally completed in 1925 as the headquarters and printing facility for the newspaper The Miami News It is currently used as a contemporary art museum and a central office to different disciplines in the arts associated with Miami Dade College.

    Photographed very early one Sunday morning when there's very little traffic or people about -

    Jewel Of South Florida

    Jewel Of South Florida - The Olympia Theater and ticket booth on East Flagler Street in downtown Miami opened in 1926 as a silent movie palace and amazed the public with its stunning Moorish architecture, perfect acoustics and simulated night sky, complete with wafting clouds and twinkling stars.

    The talkies and Vaudeville soon arrived at the Olympia, and for more than 40 years the theater was the number one entertainment center in Miami. It was one of the last theaters in the country to showcase Vaudeville acts.

    Caribbean Hammered Glass

    Caribbean Hammered Glass - At the northwest corner of Biscayne Boulevard and 21st street in downtown Miami you'll find this 'Jewel Box' building which was added in 1973 as part of the Bacardi complex ( now The National Young Arts Foundation ).

    The box is covered in 1-inch thick pieces of hammered glass, colored and arranged in a mosaic version of German artist Johannes M. Dietz's original painting that paid homage to the distillation of those Caribbean spirits that Bacardi started out with.

    Ellis Of The South

    Ellis Of The South - The oak main doors of The Freedom Tower on Biscayne Boulevard in downtown Miami.

    The tower, based on the design of the Giralda tower of the Cathedral of Seville, is 11 stories high and three bays deep. Details such as the oak main doors, a cast iron decorative transom, wrought iron balconies, Corinthian capitals on the columns, groined ceilings, and cast concrete cherubs, add to the allure of this Spanish Renaissance-style building.

    Church Of Perrine

    Church Of Perrine - After seeing this historic Central Baptist Church ( built in 1925 ) several times while photographing the Freedom Tower in downtown Miami, Florida I finally decided to make an early morning trip to the elevated metro train station across the street from it for a better view.

    The Central Baptist Church (on the corner of NE 1st Avenue and NE 5th Street) voted to merge with Christ Fellowship, originally named First Baptist Church of Perrine on October 21, 2007 and On January 4, 1989, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

    Thank you Iris, Remember what I said about shoot and run in the Railroad Photography thread ? Same thing happened in the first shot of the Central Baptist Church, Let's just say I did a bit of gate jumping to get a better angle and wider shot before the next metro train came very close to my lens :) .. I could feel the breeze ! and had to duck :glasses9:
