Benvenidos a Miami: Wynwood Walls

Two years ago this month, my family and I went on a Caribbean cruise leaving from Miami. Embarrassingly, I just started pulling together the photo book from that trip a few weeks ago. I have chosen all the pictures and done the layout but need to make a few tweaks before I send it off to Blurb. (Oh, and I should probably run that little thing called “Spell Check”. He he.) With this book project, I naturally stumbled upon a few pictures, which I thought I’d share here as the images haven’t left my hard drive since 2014. (I mean, if you don’t share your pictures online, did the pictures really get taken? I kid, I kid.) Truth be told I pretty much almost forgot that some of these existed (which brings me back to that one point. What was it? Oh yeah, print your pictures).

Although our journey began in Miami, we didn’t actually visit The Wynwood Walls until after the cruise. Once we left the ship, we had a few hours to kill before my husband and I had to catch our flight back to Chicago. What to do, what to do…

Thanks to Yelp, we learned about The Wynwood Walls. During this period, I was very much into street art, so I REALLY wanted to check this location out and use my guinea pigs travel companions to stand in for a few pictures.

Feeling green…I think this was actually inside one of the stores but it’s Wynwood-ish enough for me 😉

Since then, I’ve seen a lot of pictures on Instagram from this area, especially during Art Basel. Obviously, there has been new work added since we were here and every time I see a picture of this place, I am reminded of how much I would love to go back and have a little reunion with The Wynwood Walls. Although I don’t think I’d mind a reunion with Miami in general. 🙂
