Six places to take your next selfie now that Umbrella Sky is gone

The Umbrella Sky Project in happier times.

Look, Miami, we know you were obsessed with the Umbrella Sky Project.

We admit that the colorful art installation, above Giralda Avenue Plaza in Coral Gables through mid-September, was irresistible.

But it’s gone now. So now is the time to revisit other visually fabulous selfie hot spots. Such as:

Perez Museum of Art

For awhile, the outdoor installation of Jesús Rafael Soto’s “Penetrable” was the glamour shot. It still is pretty great, if you ask us:

Meanwhile, another popular installation is back, too. You just have to pry the small children out of the swings to get your shot.

#SundayFunday done right. Check out Konstantin Grcic’s “Netscape” installation located on our terrace. . : @360val

Design District

The bubble in the center of the Palm Court is always a good choice, especially when it’s lit up at night.

Or, if you want to be arty, you can try something from a different angle. Just be aware face saggage happens when you hold the camera way down there.

Want to see the District from a whole new angle? Join us on our FREE Guided Art Tour #atMDD, in partnership with @artsencounters, and learn about the neighborhood’s world-renowned art and design. Meet at 6:30pm by the Fly's Eye Dome in the center of Palm Court (enter at 140 NE 39th Street). < by @kikorphotos>

And of course you can’t go wrong with this as a backdrop:

Frost Science Museum

A shark is not as colorful as an umbrella, but it’s a SHARK! So get back to hogging the sweet spot at the Oculus until the hammerhead swims into view.

Meanwhile, when the museum first opened, the jellyfish were the stars of Miami Instagram. They were the Cardi Bs of the aquarium. Now they are forgotten, as washed up as Charlie Sheen on a bender. How could you forget them?

Jellies belong to the phylum Cnidaria, a large group of animals that includes corals and anemones. One feature that all these species have in common is stinging cells, called cnidocytes. When triggered, these explosive cells can fire a microscopic harpoon to deliver a venom, used for feeding or defense. #ItsScienceMiami

Wynwood Walls

You want color? The grandfather of all selfie spots has color. Miami.com estimates there are at least a billion Instagrammable spots in Wynwood. TripAdvisor called it the top hipster hangout in America. How could you have walked away?

The roosters on Calle Ocho

If you really want to go old school, you’ll track down a rooster in Little Havana.

These roosters, los gallos, have become symbolic works of art, and line the streets of Little Havana's Calle Ocho. #HolaToHavana

The beach

Have you forgotten your old friend the beach? After all the years it has been here for you with its withering sun, blistering sand and untameable wildlife (pictured below).

We had a blast this morning as we unveiled the brand new @musclebeachsouthbeach! Come and check out the @myequilibria gym right on 9 ST & Ocean Drive #MBParks

Also, there are moments when it still looks like this.
