My Experience Flying a Drone in Miami Beach

What brought me to Miami Beach? Flying a Drone in Miami Beach.

I was on a meditation retreat for a week, and as I was researching the area, the photos of Miami Beach really caught my eye, especially the tall resort skyscraper buildings.

It was so helpful to have a new friend who was willing to drive the rental car the rest of the way to Miami when I couldn’t handle the anxiety of my new reality.

I caught this white Tesla Model 3 driving by!

I enjoyed seeing the view from her friend’s apartment window. What a gorgeous view! This was exactly what I wanted to see. Despite being shot with my Google Pixel 6, these photos still get the point across. What an amazing view!

What do I remember about flying my drone in Miami Beach?

I remember I had to make a decision when I first got there.

Is it necessary to pay for parking?

It won’t be long before I leave.

Is it possible to fly from my car? It is possible that I would have limited reception if I flew inside my car.

It was important to me to be relaxed and not worry about getting a ticket, so I paid for parking.

Once I relaxed, I entered a flow state. I took a few deep breaths. Then I flew my Air 2S.

A stark contrast to when I first started flying drones. Because I was so used to taking landscape photos, I would focus on only taking photographs. However, every now and then I would enter a flow state and capture photos and videos. However, I would feel overwhelmed when I returned home because I would have so much content.

I’ve been having a hard time traveling because there’s always content to edit.

It doesn’t make sense to travel when you’re always editing content, but sometimes it takes a while to digest a trip or a session of photos or videos.

I’m posting a full video from my Iceland 2019 trip (video link) and working on Miami photos from January.

It’s just a matter of trusting everything will work out. There’s no need to worry. Everything will work out in the end.

Writing down all your ideas is a whole new skill, and I think this can contribute significantly to your content. For example, I document the story from my memory and edit the photos afterwards. Then, choose whether to create a video or a photo. I quite like it.

Speech-to-text is done with a Google Pixel 6. The results are amazing. Not that I never have to edit or tweak anything, but it just does such a great job of taking my voice and transforming it into text.
