Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

#HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang w/Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, out of what seems like the tens of thousands that I've actually seen, despite the fact that you can't actually see her truly amazing smile or dazzling beauty. But trust me, you know that it's there! An even more amazing photo when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to just get to this particular spot. At Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. ��
