We are not alone
Over the years I've noticed something very interesting at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival poster unveiling parties at the Sonesta Bayfront Hotel. We're not alone. Now if you look at the photo above at Thursday's unveiling, everything looks great, there's the artist Duaív greeting the crowd, there's the commissioner and I see David Martin and Curtis Crider, the hands belong to Melissa Nobles, my PR friend from Kiskinis Communications, but now look at the photo below this one.
You see the orbs now (the round glowing balls floating in air)? This happens every year and has happened every year for as far back as I can remember. The orbs only appear at the podium area. I took 100 photos that night, the orbs are nowhere else. You can see the story and photos I did here, do you see any other orbs in the room? I would love if someone could come up with an explanation.
Here again are the orbs in the photo taken on Thursday night. Now the Sonesta is on some very old land in Coconut Grove, it's known for that, if you go downstairs to Peacock Garden Cafe, you can see lots of old Grove photos of the area, in photos on the walls. Across the street at Peacock Park, the original Grove hotel, the Peacock Inn stood and that whole area is very sacred. In fact, right at the entrance to Peacock Garden cafe you'll find the grave site of Eva Amelia Munroe, one of the Grove's pioneers.
This is the poster unveiling in January 2014. See the orbs? The rest of the photos from that night don't have orbs. Also keep in mind, over the years I have used different cameras and different lenses.
Here is the Mayor Tomas Regalado and Monty Trainer in February 2012. The orbs like Monty.
This is January 2010. Maria Reyes-Jones was the poster artist.
Here is Guy Harvey and his poster art in January 2011, along with the orbs.
And here's Monty talking to the crowd in January 2011. If you look closely, you can see an orb to his side.
You can go back to all the coverage and stories here in the Grapevine and see all the photos taken at the same events. No orbs. Only at the podium area and not always with the dark curtains behind them. Here are a bunch of the poster unveiling stories from the past few years. Check them out.
