It's not easy having eyes all over the scene, being around to take in all the wild visuals at all the worthwhile places in the city. There are, however, those parties and gallery openings where a fortunate photographer can point and shoot.

It's impossible to be everywhere, but hey, we can try to keep our Eyes on Miami.
