Mai Kai Night Photography

Mai Kai in Fort Lauderdale is an interesting place.   It is a restaurant that is Polynesian themed and has some of the most interesting food and drink that I have ever had.

My Vegan and Vegetarian friends will probably have some difficulty finding food there.

On the other hand, it is a property that is absolutely a riot of things to look at.  The inside has its shows, the outside has the lanai and the gardens.

What you're looking at is what I call "A Stopped Clock Is Right Twice A Day" photography.  I was in the right place, the right time, and knew how to get the picture.   Not all of them are quite this good, but I do post my personal favorites, Copyright 2010 and all rights reserved, here when I can.   This one in the full sized picture is simply amazing.   I was sitting with my arm up on the lanai's bamboo rail, having a "Barrel of Rum" drink, just finished some of the best Barbecue Pork I've ever had, and got the shot.

Waters in muted light glowing jade and reflecting the floods, the foliage picking up some shimmer of lights from the pools, the water forming a curtain in the slow shutter speeds.   I was amazed how beautiful the picture came out, but as beautiful as this is, the place far outshines it.   I'll probably be back in May for my next birthday.  There are more pictures on the camera, and there are many more to take. 

Tripod not included.
