It was a short walk from our hotel down to "The News" but on the hotel's front steps, we encountered a crew involved in a fashion shoot employing a young blonde male model, a photographer, and an assistant with a reflector. The shoot didn't appear to attract much attention from passers-by. This was South Beach after all!! but we were allowed to photograph the activities before leaving for breakfast.
The News is sited on the corner of Ocean Drive and Eighth Street.
We spent the early part of the afternoon walking through the streets of South Beach and photographing some of the art deco features we found - mainly in smaller apartment buildings. Later in the afternoon we visited the Wolfsonian -on Washington and 10th - a museum dedicated to art of the early modern period that was incorporated into the architecture, decorative art and industrial design of the region. The museum is fascinating. It had about 5 floors of exhibits - some permanent, some visiting - including a whole floor about automotive design and another about lino-cuts. The shop is full of treasures designed in the styles of the era and we stopped for a coffee and a sandwich and watched a film about the movie star who had "It": Clara Bow
