Beautiful View of South Beach

... and the subject in the photo is not bad, either.

I know, I know it's shameless narcissism but I couldn't resist posting this photo by my friend and photographer Liam Crotty, who regularly features interesting locals on his website and has taken portraits of many notables around the country. Liam isn't from Miami originally, so it's great to see the city through his eyes.

He hit it out of the ballpark with this photo; it truly captures the spirit of this blog, not to mention the glint of mischief in my eyes. That's the view from C-Lounge at The Clevelander, by the way, which we enjoyed during the Fifth Anniversary Bash last weekend.

I realize I don't write under the Manola Blablablanik nom de plume anymore, but if I had to give her a portrait, this would be it. Thanks, Liam!

I do love this shot. The colors are intense, and the clouds are so gorgeous.
