Thanks, Cityseed! That gives me a better idea of what to shoot. I just started doing this last week after not owning a camera in 25 years. Meantime, I have just called Bank of America in Downtown Miami and I have spoken to the property manager about getting roof access to take pictures. They have to check their schedule and then I make an appointment. Then, I go down and sign a waiver, and then I will be escorted to the roof by security. I have given him my email address so that he can email me all the details!

very nice pic NewAtlantis! This view from the Tuttle causeway captures the entire skyline perfectly from downtown to the new scrapers in the arts district.

That is exactly what I was shooting for, but I didn't notice the rainbow above Opera Tower until now.

I spoke to the property manager of Bank of America tower here in Miami yesterday. He emailed me, and I sent him the first pic above and this pic of Bank of America tower as well as the Rusty Pelican pic with the skyline view from my table as samples of my work so that he could see that I was legit. So now I wait to see where he can fit me into his schedule for a shoot.

Arva Moore Parks McCabe is updating her book, Miami the Magic City, and asked if I knew any photographers who might have shots of the entire city across water that she could us as two page spread. (first pic on this page) I can give you her contact if you’d be interested in possibly getting published in that book."

I got this email from Arquitectonica and told them I had forwarded it to an attorney. I haven't given them the rights to use anything just yet.

No, they are not! But I suspect they are trying to pull one over on me, so I'm letting them know they can't do that because I'm consulting an attorney about this.

It sounds as if they're just trying to see if you'd allow them to use the pictures. You can say no if you wish. But they said they'd give the photographer credit in the book.

I told them I had forwarded their email to a lawyer to consult with him. Meantime, I have emailed every pic I sent Arquitectonica to a business and real estate lawyer to see what he has to say about this. If Arquitectonica likes the way I showcase their projects and wants to use my photos, then they must feel they are something advantageous to them whereby they may be able to profit from them, and therefore, some kind of contract might be in order here. Having studied skyscraper architecture as a hobby for overy 30 years now, I have some idea of what I want to achieve when I photograph a skyline or a skyscraper. I don't just point and shoot, and I am not going to just give photos to an architectural firm as prestigious as this if they like the product. That is why I sent them to a business and real estate lawyer to see if he finds this worth pursuing. Meantime, here are some more pics I took just this Sunday.

NewAtlantis fantastic pics as always and Congrats that your photos are being considered for a book by Arva Moore Parks who is a respected historian on Miami. You should feel honored and your 5th pic is now my screen background.

Thanks, Bobdreamz! I suspect lots of guys are using one or more of my pics as their screen background. You are just the first one to admit it. Yes, I do feel honored to have my work considered for a picture book, but I've always had some idea of what I wanted to shoot of the new Miami skyline and how to shoot it.

That is a vantage point I've wanted for a long time, and I pulled over onto the grass of the Julia Tuttle Causeway walked up the bridge (which does not have a pedestrian sidewalk) to make that shot. One of the SkyscraperCity forumers said if I didn't use the highest resolution to make the shoot, they wouldn't be able to use the photo, but I can always shoot it again. The only difficulty would be the weather and the sky conditions. It's hard to capture solar halos projecting rainbows over the skyline!

Is that 5th in the last sequence or 5th on the page?
