Photos of Miami-Dade County at night. 

Night photograpy is easy wiht today's automatic digital cameras.  This was taken with an inexpensive Sony digital cameral from a a stoplight on Brickell Avenue.  With a night camera setting, I was careful not to move my hand too much and there was enough light to get a decent shutter speed.  The lines of the Plaza Condominium agains the cloudy black sky makes an interesting contrast.

The second photo is of the Bank of America Tower (formerly the Centrust Tower) in Miami-Dade, Florida.
