South Beach, Miami, on a Friday morning at around 9:30. Having sauntered south on Ocean Drive to about 12th street I decided to head out to the beach a shade under 500 feet from the hotels and restaurants. Being 9:30am on a regular Friday there were not many people on the beach but the Boucher Brothers crews had been hard at work laying out sun loungers and umbrellas in anticipation of crowds to come. And they probably did, later. Despite being a regular Friday, there seemed to be no lack of vacationers, particularly from overseas. I was struck by the cloud formations so I set down my tripod to capture a few images. Later in the day, these clouds had grown to the point where they could no longer carry their loads of water and I, and others, got soaked, but that’s another story for another day.
