Good afternoon, South Florida. No doughnut is worth this.

1. Now you see him ...

Barbara Corbellini Duarte visited Miami Friday to photograph the first night of Kanye West's Saint Pablo Tour stop at the AmericanAirlines Arena. I haven't had a chance to get Barbara's take on the music -- some critics have not been unkind -- but as her photographs from inside and outside the arena suggest, West's fans were easier to spot than he was.

2. SUP, Hollyweird

Barbara gave her camera a workout this weekend. On Saturday, she captured the goings-on at the Margaritaville Cup, a standup-paddleboard competition that took place in the waters across from the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort. And because no amount of Jimmy Buffett shine could ever truly change Hollywood beach, Barbara spotted a few metal-detector-wielding scavengers, as well.

4. She'll take you there

Less than a year after playing a pair of concerts in South Florida, the peerless Mavis Staples will be back in the area to play the annual Sunshine Music Festival in Boca Raton. Curated by the Tedeschi Trucks Band, the 5-year-old festival also will feature Bruce Hornsby, Dave Mason and the North Mississippi Allstars, among others. Ben Crandell has the details. I caught Mavis' May 4 concert at the Broward Center, and if you could possibly need a reminder as to how spectacular she is, my review is here.

5. A day in the life

"The only catch in my breath that I got was when I went to my seat and there were all those other people around me, and I still can feel that to this day, that there were all these white people around ... everybody standing up with everybody, and then just yelling as loud as I could and singing along." South Florida historian Kitty Oliver talks to Johnny Diaz about seeing the Beatles in Jacksonville on Sept. 11, 1964, two months after the enactment of the Civil Rights Act. She also shared her experience on camera with filmmaker Ron Howard, whose documentary "The Beatles: Eight Days A Week -- The Touring Years" is now playing in South Florida.
