Cavalier Hotel Lobby 10 Years Ago

Cavalier Hotel, soon to open as a Marriott Autograph Collection property after a multi-million $ restoration, is just down the street from me and I've used as a setting for years for a variety of images. Here's the lobby ten years ago (8/31/07). Wonder what it will look like on re-opening day.

Imagine you're on a boat...

Imagine you're on a boat slowly crusing along over gorgeous clear warm aquamarine water over a shallow bottom. This isn't what you'd expect to see. Unless you're on a boat with Mermaid Portfolio Workshop peeps. :-)
