SFDB Post Of The Week
SFDB selects its Post of the Week by going back and reviewing all the Sifts that we've done over the past 7 days. We find the best post of the week and note the runners ups as we judge them to be.
I hate to say it but things were a bit slow in the South Florida blogosphere this week. It's one of those weeks where I'm not able to get real excited about the Post of the Week. But having said that, there still were some good posts out there. Let's go.
Runners-Up: South Florida Food and Wine took us along for an extended tour of Little Havana last week and told us about all the interesting and well-known eating and drinking establishments that she visited while she roamed. Miami Beach 411 posted a nicely balanced and informative piece on a place many of us know and love: Books and Books on Lincoln Road. Beached Miami did their usual stellar job with photos of last week's Critical Mass ride.
Winner: When Carlos Miller got wind that the Fort Lauderdale Police Department was keeping photographers away from a movie shoot, you knew it was only a matter of time before Miller was in their face with his camera challenging their authority. Fort Lauderdale Photo Protest Proves Photography Is Not A Crime was the blog post that documented the culmination of a battle between photographers and the police in which the photographers eventually prevailed. Whether you agree with him or not, you still have to acknowledge Miller's work and talent for pushing the envelope and somehow managing to capture it all on film and eventually blogging about it. This week his efforts receives SFDB's Post of the Week honors.
'Til next time, keep on blogging!
