Sun Trust's Sunday Jazz Brunch along Fort Lauderdale's Riverwalk

Having spent the first nine days of my Memorial Day Week visit to Fort Lauderdale without the benefit of neither of my two digital cameras since both at Ritz for repair I did not resume my 2007 Sunday Photo Walk Project until Sunday, 03 June. When after purchasing a Canon Power Shot S3 IS at a Best Buy in Fort Lauderdale that I visited the Sun Trust Sunday Jazz Brunch at the Las Olas Riverfront.

In its 17th year, the acclaimed SunTrust Sunday Jazz Brunch, produced by the City of Fort Lauderdale Parks and Recreation Department and sponsored by SunTrust takes place the first Sunday of every month along Fort Lauderdale's Riverwalk.

Downtown Fort Lauderdale and the Riverwalk came alive this past Sunday, 03 June 2007, as jazz musicians performed on four diferent stages along the New River.

Not aware, at the time, that the Sunday Jazz Brunch took place along the entire Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk I only photographed the event at the Las Olas Riverfront which is where Billy Bones performed.

And then took a photowalk along the Las Olas Boulevard where after capturing windows and pedestrians, with my All Day Pass, I caught the number 11 bus back to the Lauderdale Beach. Where before catching a third number 11 bus back to Lauderdale By The Sea I spent more than an hour photographing folks and motorcyclists along the Atlantic Boulevard / Beach Promenade.

Now that I know of Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale I am sure to return to the New River with the all three cameras. An advantage of the Canon Power Shot S3 IS is that I can shoot videos and movies as well.
