Not Jumping But Pumping Jack The Leaping Lizard? - IMRAN™




I was looking out at the gorgeous day on Tampa Bay when I saw this little critter hop on to the base of the pillar trying to impress another one.  I saw it doing it's throat puffing thing so I slid open the doors to make a video. It saw me and stopped. I waited about 2 minutes before it started doing it again, while keeping a wary eye on me, It was not jumping jack but definitely a little leaping lizard that doesn't know jack about being posted on social media. :-)

Red Rushing Sweet Sunset - IMRAN™





Just an average but still dramatic golden red rushing sweet sunset turns into a beautiful pastels and reds dusk seen from upstairs at home on Tampa Bay in Apollo Beach, Florida.   Created completely on a still great Apple iPad 3.

The Pen… Wait A Sec, The Camera Is Mightier Than The Sword! - IMRAN™

There is so much irony in this photo that Tania took of me during our trip to Spain.

The incredible and beautiful Islamic influence is visible even today, despite Muslims’ rule having ended there centuries ago. It was wonderful to see that and the equally fascinating later Western art, and the craziness of Dali and others, in Barcelona. One of the fun places to visit was Pla del Palau. 

While the news today is of barbarians beheading innocent Muslims, Christians, and non-Muslims around the world supposedly in the name of God, at one time it was Islamic countries, and Muslim societies, that were the centers of art, literature, science, libraries, and many other wonders of civilization.

This photo, taken ten years ago by my then girlfriend Tania, has irony because it is a European Christian soldier character on the streets of Barcelona who is playfully holding me, a Muslim, at the tip of a sword.

I am showing that I will smilingly fight back, although I only have a camera lens (EyeSee 360) to defend myself.

The imagery pen IS mightier than the sword!

Spread Peace and Love, my friends, wherever you go, whoever you meet.
