Penny For Your Thoughts But Not Your Services – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on December 15, 2016

Some photographer posted in a FaceBook group about a model hurting their feelings by saying the photos they took (including location, hair, makeup) weren’t worth more than $10 each. I think a dozen people commented on that post. 

As I clicked to post my response on the original post it disappeared. Maybe the original poster deleted their post. I’m just sharing my “comment” here for everyone, as there will always be unappreciative and ungrateful clients in every field. 

I wrote: “Most people do not appreciate intangible expertise or subtle specialization or soft services nor put real monetary value on it. 

They’ll pay a plumber $200 for fixing a $100 leaky toilet but will have a heart attack paying $300 for cloud & technology or management consulting advice they hit you up for regarding their million dollar business.  

I haven’t seen the work the original poster did but assuming it was well done I’d say, go with the attitude, “Yes, the photos were worth just $10 each because the ungrateful model wasn’t worth more. 😋

Solar Eclipse By (No Space) Ship – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on February 19, 2016

Animated GIF

The more things change, the more they remain the same. Or say they say.

I remember in the early days of the Internet how animated GIFs were so popular because they were one of the few ways of showing movement or multiple images in the era of very limited bandwidth. As the Internet’s largest use became web sites (in addition to email) animated GIFs tended to fall off the horizon, no pun intended.

Now, suddenly they are all the rage again, for some time. Ironically, it is still not easy to make quality animated GIFs, or to share them. FaceBook does not let you upload them, but finally is letting you see them if they are linked from somewhere else. Flickr, that was sleeping while Instagram took over the masses’ photo craze market, makes it possible to upload animated GIFs, but the last time I checked they will NOT display, unless you include a separate link to one of the other size versions that Flickr offers.

That is why, even though I have been doing Internet video from the time the first release of QuickTime with my then amazing top of the line Apple PowerMac 110 AV, creating postage stamp sized video movies. That has given way to my moving into creating some of the first 4K 3D videos, in addition to other things like time lapse music videos, and more in photography, like 360 and 360×360 spherical panoramas, etc. But Animated GIFs were not a priority.

As I recently saw this cruise ship leaving the Port Of Tampa approaching the great ball of fire we call the Sun, as it set over the Tampa Bay horizon, I took several photos. They were taken handheld, not on a tripod, so they could not be totally accurately framed, but I managed to make this as my first official animated GIF.

Now the question is to see how many people can see it on Blogger, and on other platforms.

Lights & Shadows – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on January 18, 2016

Lights & Shadows. Embrace them all, as I embrace them all, my loves. For without their total embrace we would not have these mind blowing visions turn into reality in front of our eyes, filling all our senses, covering even the giant expanse of the sea with reflections like goosebumps as it experiences the blending of the two right above it, reflecting on it, making it even deeper filled with passion to unleash.

Music, time lapse photography, and video I created at tonight’s stunning sunset.

Boating, Flying, Sailing, Kayaking, Fishing. You name it, you can do it. Another stunning “winter” weekend on Tampa Bay in mid-January experienced from my blessed home at Apollo Beach, Florida.

Golden Moment In Big Bend Of Modern Times & A Gilded Age – IMRAN™

Posted by imrananwar on August 17, 2014

Golden Moment In Big Bend Of Modern Times & A Gilded Age - IMRAN™

A golden moment in time I captured during my recent visit to London, England, after 22 years.

As the hands of time complete their turns on the Big Ben’s clock face, the face of London continues to evolve.

The changes were so marked in the 22 years between my 2 visits, I can only wonder what someone from an older more gilded age would think, if we could turn back time, or cause a bend in the space and time continuum.

Definitely something to keep a(n) (London) Eye on!

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

Posted by imrananwar on August 3, 2014

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.

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.

I Eye London Eye – IMRAN™

I Eye London Eye - IMRAN™ -- 400+ Views!

I Eye London Eye – IMRAN™ on Flickr.

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.
