Scene Around Town: Miami Lakers’ Views

Community By Linda Trischitta, Editor Wednesday, November 16, 2022

      Marcelino Sotolongo has a daily routine: He greets the dawn on his way to hand-feed turtles and fish at his Lake Patricia home in Miami Lakes.

     “I have an entourage,” Sotolongo, 61, joked about the wildlife that greets him each day.

     A Miami Laker who has lived in the same home since 1999, Sotolongo said, “I take a lot of sunrise photos. I love my community. The nature, the lakes, the people.”

     Sotolongo captured this image on Oct. 12 with his Samsung S20 cellphone, without using a filter.
