Lithuanian Marius Jovaiša the photographer and publisher met with the Cuban government for five years, working out the logistics. While it looks like the photos were taken with a drone, he used an ultralite and flew over the places. Marius has to get special visas and work with the Cuban Air Force to get the job done.
You can see the book and video here along with Marius' story.
I found it interesting because I can just see our local developers and builder associations and all those other greedy people salivating over turning that pristine setting into shopping centers and hotels and condos. They destroyed our city, let's hope that doesn't happen to Cuba.
Speaking of stupid ideas. This is a rendition of that stupid thing developer Michael Simkins is asking the Miami City Commission to allow to be built in downtown Miami. He calls this piece of crap, "Innovation Tower." Terry Ferrer, a local artist did this rendition of what the tower will look like illuminated. It's literally a 633 foot billboard.
