I met Jessica when I was in fourth grade, in Ms. Babani’s class at Key Biscayne Community School. She had just moved to Miami from Iron Mountain, Michigan. Ten years later, she and I are at the beach on Key Biscayne taking photos. Though they were taken in Miami, they look nothing like what you would expect Miami to be; they lack the anticipated vibrancy. Everything about it seems cold; the sand, the water, the sky. It seems foreign and still, with a color scheme similar to a light marble. Perfect for Jessica from Iron Mountain.
