Euro Stairway To Heaven – IMRAN™

I had made this trip to Germany EXACTLY 25 Years after my first visit there.

Thanks to my beautiful beloved companion Shasha for the many awesome photos she took of me during our amazing time together in Berlin, Germany, five years ago.

She took this candid photo by calling out to me as I was going up a staircase to see if this place was worth exploring. I had made this trip to Germany EXACTLY 25 Years after my first visit there.

Growing A ‘Small’ Business By Getting Down To Hard Work & Pleasing Customers With More Than Lip Service! – IMRAN™

Pleasing the customer would be more than lip service

Growing A ‘Small’ Business By Getting Down To Hard Work & Pleasing Customers With More Than Lip Service! – IMRAN™ 😂

I do not know if this is a hoax but it sure sounds more funny than sexy.

First they will ask, “My pad or your iPad?”. Then they will, ahem, get down to business which requires hard work.

Pleasing the customer would be more than lip service. LOL.

Q. Will the BJ providers wear protection on their head? No, no, the real head! In case of hot spilled coffee, you know. LOL

Not to be outdone. perhaps the US coffee chain can rebrand itself as Starƒucks. 😀

I Felt I Fell (For Passion) At Eiffel – IMRAN™

Paris is among my favorite citieis in the world. Those include my American hometown New York City, Berlin in Germany, Paris in France as well as my original hometowns of Lahore and Karachi, Pakistan.

The Fountain / Head – IMRAN™

Molière, was born nearly 400 years ago, on 15 January 1622.

The photo title is derived from the famous book by Ayn Rand, but the reason I walked many miles to get to this place, Fontaine Molière, on Rue Thérèse, with my companion during our trip to Paris, France, was to salute another even bigger literary giant.
Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, better known as Molière, was born nearly 400 years ago, on 15 January 1622. He was a French playwright, comedian, writer and actor who is considered to be one of the greatest masters of comedy in Western literature.

He was loved by the French King Louis XIV, but was hated by the Church for his ridiculing the hypocrites ruling religion. He died on 17 February 1673, a few hours after doing a performance of his final play, ironically, about a hypochondriac.

His works, and his legacy, live on for the ages.

Berliner Dom DOMinating Berlin Sky – IMRAN™

I love Berlin, Germany, and every time I am in Berlin since my first visit 27 years ago, I always enjoy visiting the Lustgarten area and seeing this imposing structure of the Berliner Dom.

I love Berlin, Germany, and every time I am in Berlin since my first visit 27 years ago, I always enjoy visiting the Lustgarten area and seeing this imposing structure of the Berliner Dom.

I was able to take this awesome composite photo by combining a few photos taken with my Windows Phone Lumia 1020 and photmerging them in Photoshop. It is amazing how much detail can be see if you view the 55 MB 11000×7800 pixel image on a giant screen.

Big Bending Stairway To Heaven Against Big Ben London – IMRAN™

When I finally made it back to London after 22 years, I was almost going to miss getting on the London Eye because of a hectic meetings schedule. But at the end of the day of ICANN meetings towards the end of my extremely short stay, I headed to the landmark.

When I finally made it back to London after 22 years, I was almost going to miss getting on the London Eye because of a hectic meetings schedule. But at the end of the day of ICANN meetings towards the end of my extremely short stay, I headed to the landmark.

Of course, right after I paid for it is when the otherwise great London weather I was enjoying turned to rain. But, despite that I was able to enjoy new views and viewpoints of London that I had not seen before, including this unique shot showing a big bending stairway, seemingly to heaven, against the majestic backdrop of Big Ben and the magnificent Parliament building.

This is a one-third crop of a WindowsPhone Lumia 1020 photo straightened and enhanced in Photoshop.

I Eye London Eye – IMRAN™

Nearly 22 years ago, I stood at this same spot to take pictures during my first trip to London. I had stopped to visit relatives on my way from Pakistan to continue across the Atlantic Ocean to New York.

I Eye London Eye.

Nearly 22 years ago, I stood at this same spot to take pictures during my first trip to London. I had stopped to visit relatives on my way from Pakistan to continue across the Atlantic Ocean to New York.

The great old historic city was as interesting and bustling as before. If anything, it was significantly more ‘internationalized’ in terms of the demographics.

But architecturally the biggest change was seeing the London Eye that was nowhere in the pictures I took at the River Thames during my previous visit.

I was also lucky to have amazing weather during my visit. This is a WindowsPhone Lumia 1020 photo.
