Miami, Florida. Thursday, March 15, 2018 Several people were injured and killed when a pedestrian bridge that was still under construction collapsed near Florida International University Modesto Maidique Campus.The bridge was supposed to help connect about 4,000 Florida International University students, between the City of Sweetwater and the college campus to avoid casualties on the campus’ main street. It was said that this bridge might have been the largest in the nation, but had not been ready to be used, though people were already able to drive underneath. The 950 ton bridge had been under construction for 6-7 months and was scheduled to be open in 2019. It was also said that this pedestrian bridge was to withstand the strength of a category 5 hurricane.
Several people were seen being rescued into ambulances and first responders launched search and rescue missions. Florida Highway Patrol told CBS News that there were “several fatalities.”

💥Last year, I was hired to shoot some #documentaryphotography of a travel bloggers time in Havana, Cuba. 🇨🇺 I got the pleasure of meeting Eri and he invited me into his home. My conversation with him about Cuba was insightful. According to Eri “aquí en Cuba no se vive, aquí se sobrevive” translated that means “you don’t live life in Cuba, you just survive…” 😔 After seeing Eri’s home and how close his bedroom was to his toilet and how close his toilet was to his kitchen, it made me reevaluate. Reminds me that we take a lot of what we have for granted. Even the simple things. Stay humble, my people. Appreciate your life for what it is. 🏊♂️ Swim with the current or you’ll end up drowning.. There was not one time Eri did not have a smile on his face. He was sincere, genuine and a true gentlemen. 😊 Thank you for letting me into your sanctuary to document your lifestyle. ♥️

April 15, 2014 – Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
Last night was beautiful. The moon was unique. I started to watch her at about 2:30 in the morning, she was crescent and bright white. It almost felt like an optical illusion, or as if you had blurry site because, it was THAT bright, but still only crescent. You could see this faint ring around the whole crescent moon. She was changing at, what felt to be, every minute, I hadn’t gone inside to get my camera yet, I was too thrilled with seeing this beauty form. She began closing in..kind of closing off the brightness; like an eye slowly falling asleep. Then BAM: it was circular, and red, and the bright light went away. There were shadows and specular highlights, hues of red, orange, yellow, dark purple… This is around 3:15am by now, and this is when I decided to play a little with light and drawing, so I played with the moon and stars light and had fun. With my canon 5D MarkII on a tripod, and the mode on Bulb, I was able to happily create these images. Then shortly after, I stopped to simply enjoy the moon, once again. By 4am it almost looked sepia toned. Then it did look sepia toned. Here are the images, hope you like!
That would be me, right there! I am thee Vanessa Castillo. I am a photographer and videographer, specializing in anything anyone needs, if I’m capable. I am a University of Miami Alumna, and owner of Vanessa Castillo Visuals. I currently reside in Florida, and live in a studio loft where I get to create whenever I please, which leads me to yesterday… I’ve been a photographer for 8 years but I considered myself to be a “natural light” kind of photog. That being said, yesterday the 13th of February, I decided to play around in the photo studio, with strobes, self-timers and backdrops. The most challenging part of it was, EVERYTHING! I felt overwhelmed, but determined, nonetheless. I wanted to play around with self-portraits, in some way. Self timing it for 10 seconds, I’d go in front of the camera, pose and voila! I learned. I laughed. I had a great time with self. When I look at the photos I decided to mesh together, I notice a perfectly imperfect balance, in my physical appearance, and I love it. Here are some of the shots I captured.
