The Carlyle Hotel, from my "South Beach Art Deco" series. This beautiful Tropical Art Deco boutique hotel is one of the jewels along Ocean Drive in Miami Beach. It was also the location used for many exterior shots for the Robin Williams movie, "Bird Cage". This image is originally shot on black and white film, scanned and edited digitally.

Lake Lure ~ Named one of the top 10 most beautiful man-made lakes in the world by National Geographic. Located about 27 miles from Asheville, Lake Lure sits in the Hickory Nut Gorge, surrounded by lush mountain tops and sheer granite cliffs. Look up to see the famous Chimney Rock. Lake Lure was a filming location for scenes from the movies Thunder Road, Dirty Dancing, A Breed Apart, Forrest Gump, The Last of the Mohicans, The Passion of the Christ and Firestarter.
