West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, FL in Panorama Iphone Style
So I am really behind on my blog posts so I apologize, but this week and next I will have some great posts with some new images to share. Today’s posts is all about my trip to West Palm Beach Florida and Boca Raton, Fl areas a few weeks ago.
I was amazed at the performance of the Iphone 5 panorama camera feature, and I used it a LOT on this trip. So I thought it would be fun to do an entire post just showcasing a bunch of the panorama photos. There will be a description as I remember it for each and some stories to share. I have some future posts as well where we will focus on more parts of my trip, including the trip to the West Palm Beach Zoo, Clematis Street activities, and even a surprise maternity photo shoot on the beach.
This is CityPlace in West Palm Beach. It is one of the main shopping areas of the town and has lots going on. Each night really between Thursday to Saturday there was a small concert around the corner and the streets were filled with lot of people enjoying food or going to the movie theater there.
This is a photo of the same area, but at night and from the other side of CityPlace. Here on the left you can see the band shell where the concerts would take place.
This is the lobby of the Muvico Imax movie theater in West Palm Beach. One of the most beautiful lobbies I have seen for a movie theater. They have a new thing in some of their rooms called D-Box Experience. This seems to e some sort of 4d experience where the chairs move to what is going on in the theater. I saw Oblivion in Imax there and I thought it was a pretty good movie. I gave it an A.
This is the inside of the Imax theater. This was really pushing the limits of the Iphone 5 as it was pretty dark in there. But, it gets the job done in showing you the inside.
It wouldn’t be a Florida post without showing off some palm trees. This is a strip between Clematis Street and the Inter-coastal that separates West Palm Beach and Palm Beach.
This is an awesome view from the top of an apartment building showing Centennial Square at Clematis. This is where they host a lot of concert events such as the largest music festival SunFest. While I was there, they had a concert one night, and a tent sleep over concert night which I thought was pretty neat.
There were lots of yachts in the harbor of the Inter-Coastal. It is a beautiful waterfront area, with a great place to walk or ride your bike. This particular dock was right across from Clematis St restaurants. I bought the one on the left….. just kidding.
This is looking back from the other direction. This is an interesting photo because what you see in the middle is actually a tractor trailer! But with how the panorama camera works with panning, the truck was in motion, so when the photo is finished it looks like a hover bike. If only those were real, wouldn’t that be awesome?
This is another view of the Inter-coastal.
This is the awesome iPics Theater in Boca Raton Fl. Absolutely awesome experience. There will be an entire post dedicated to showing off this awesome movie theater. One of the top 5 experiences of my life, being that I am such a huge movie fan. Here is a small teaser…… blankets, reclining chairs, and a waiter that comes right to your seat!
This is not one of the better photos but it was a cool spot so I posted it. This was called Johnnie Brown’s and it was in Delray Beach, Fl. I didn’t get to spend much time in Delray but it was a neat little beach town.
This is another fun restaurant, again not the greatest photo. It was an indoor/outdoor deck at Two Drunken Goats Beach Cantina at Riviera Beach Fl. There was a great breeze this day as they thought it was going to rain down on us, so they closed the screens. I had a great Haddock sandwich there. I definitely recommend.
Switching things up a bit, this was the Aztec area at the West Palm Beach Zoo. I have more photos of this coming soon as well as the one below.
This was a pretty neat looking fake suspension bridge at the West Palm Beach Zoo. You can see on the left the camera messed up a bit ha.
This was on the fancier side of the inter-coastal in Palm Beach, FL. What a beautiful beach. I didn’t spend much time on this one as the parking was definitely pricey here. But it was a very nice beach and looked like it would be a great place to ride your bike up and down the strip.
This was a hotel and dock port of some type in the Singer Island in Florida. You could walk out on this pier, although you weren’t suppose to, and it seemed like it would be really fun to sit there and eat your lunch one day.
Taken not far from the photo above in the Boca Raton Fl area, there were these little spots along the inter-coastal where you could pull over and have a little party apparently. It looked like the place the locals go to for a little after work get together. Lots of kayaking and small boat water activities.
One of my favorite beaches was this one in Boca Raton. There were 4-5 restaurants right on the other side of the road to enjoy and then go to the beach. It was finally that ‘beach food’ type of area that I had been looking for on my trip.
Now this next group of images I am going to put all together. To be honest it’s a bit fuzzy on which beaches are which in these images. I visited beaches in Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Singer Island, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, and a few in between that I found as I was driving. Of the beaches Singer beach definitely seemed to have the most scenic areas with rocks in the water and rocks you could walk out on a bit. Photographically that would be probably where I would go for photo shoots. The beach at Boca Raton above also had a few rocks that looked interesting to play with.
And that is all of them for now. Like I said there will be a few more posts coming soon from the Florida trip, so definitely check them out.
