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.
Probably the toughest part of doing the Post of the Week selection is placing a line through a great post because there was something even better that week. It happened a lot this week...so let's see the "survivors," shall we?
Runners-Up: Random Pixels did a great job researching and collecting evidence of the Miami Herald's robust support of Marlins Stadium that is impossible to argue with. Nikon Miami posted a spectacular collection of images captured in the Dry Tortugas. Their first Miami Bike Hunt was a big success and Beached Miami documented it nicely in a post that might just make more people want to head out to the next one.
Winner: Green space is at a premium in most of urban South Florida, so when Transit Miami learned about a number of trees that had been felled and cut up to make room for development in the Design District, their activist nature kicked in and they posted a number of pictures of the carnage. It's still an open question as to whether things were done according to laws and ordinances, but I have to give Transit Miami credit for bringing public awareness to this issue. Now all we're missing is a follow-up. In the meantime, Who Chopped Down the Design District Trees? gets this week's SFDB Post of the Week recognition.
'Til next time, keep on blogging!
