The beautiful Japanese maple in our front yard, it's leaves get so vibrant around this time of year mashAllah, juxtaposed with the blandness of the rest of the yard.

tree3.jpgtree2.jpgtree1.jpg

Here's a poor dead birdy we found on the porch one morning. It must have flown into the glass door, breaking its neck on impact. The door was probably reflective and the birdy thought it was flying towards its twin, saying Chirp Cheerio Chirp! Inna Lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji'un.

Looked out the front door this morning and saw this. All I could think was "Wow." The tree is bleeding for Muharram. I bet all the leaves will have fallen by Ashura. tree+bleeds.jpg

Mashallah sister, what a beautiful photo you have taken, where is this?

Thank you sis, it's in my front yard. It's a Japanese maple that, just a few days ago, had all of its leaves. Edit: More specifically, it's in the state of Georgia in the US if that's what you're asking :)

i see, mashallah you have a beautiful yard

Photo Bucket's latest update does not work on any computer I have access to. Most unfortunate. You were all even going to get to see the mysterious and elusive Servidor :o [pictures with other people].

Might make an Image Shack account. Marbles, any recommendations here? How is Photo Bucket working for you? Even the new laptops at the nearest Information Centre cannot handle whatever they are up to.

There's a link near the top that says "Switch back to the original Photobucket." That might help.

I know. And I tried that. Asked me if I wanted to type a reason I was going back to the older version. I declined. Then it acted like it was doing something but never took me back to the older version.

The photographs are going to take some sifting anyway I have decided. As much as I would like to show my mom off, I shall not be posting any photographs of or with women. With the proliferation of masturbation and mutah threads and the kinds of posts made there - it seems a significant portion of the male membership of the forum have the sexual ethics of a particularly debauched chimpanzee. They are apparently convinced that a man is basically a bipedal pair of genitals. But, I have plenty and shall have plenty more with men and of Newcastle to post.

Maybe try Image Shack.

Pictures of 3 Afghan beggars, I met during my travel to Yazd province/Iran.

They were standing in front of the hotel begging for money.

I didn't give them money, but I shared some cookies with them and they agreed to let me take these pictures.

We played and had fun together, until a rude hotel guard came out and yelled at them. They immediately fled before he could actually reach them.

Before parting the older son told me that their father forced them to beg and if they returned home without money he will hit them. Poor creatures!

After meeting those kids, I really felt pity, sadness and also guilt!

because I am able to enjoy the good life while they, who are just children, cannot even have a decent living.

That is so lovely of you! To give them cookies [a father cannot misuse cookies...] and play with them. Happiness itself to them I have no doubt. -1 for not giving them the cookies but only sharing. You could not give the box to the children?! :dry:

I think this is what the thread needs. More of this. Many pictures of places and things. Not many of people.

Same problem here, Servidor. I immediately switched to the new version but my photos would not upload at all. I persevered and tried and tried and tried. I went through new layout, new buttons and functions only to come to the conclusion that the new version still has bugs. And then I reverted to the old version which I am still using and it's working fine for me, so far.

I would hate to move on to a different image host as I am used to PhotoBucket and have all my photos up on the same account of the same host.

I think this is what the thread needs. More of this. Many pictures of places and things. Not many of people.

I agree. Next time I'll come up with just those sort of stills. I also have some beggars to show.

What language were you speaking in the video? It sounds like...Korean(???) But I've only heard Korean from hearing my old roommate watch Korean dramas.

Korean in Yazd? :wacko:

She's speaking Farsi. They are counting like "one, two, three " and she's asking the kid "where is your father".

Thank you all for the nice comments and likes, made me really happy! ^___^'

-1 for not giving them the cookies but only sharing. You could not give the box to the children?! :dry:

Why did u assume that I had a box full of cookies?

It's not true, I simply had 2 small Yazdi cookies *so called Qotab* which I divided in half. Take back ur (-1)…

I agree. Next time I'll come up with just those sort of stills. I also have some beggars to show.

I don't think you quite understand the meaning behind these pictures. Well, I wanted to capture a sad part of life, cruel things you don’t normally see every day and not just showing off some child beggars.

If you have emotional pictures, (like this one) then share it.

Anyasayo sis',

U're not the first person to mention it, even my Iranian friends think the same, that I speak Farsi with thick Korean accent.

Show off?

What other reason would one show pics of beggars than to capture the sad part of life, and to show the misery and helplessness of some who spread their hands for a few pennies?

Okay, I won't post. Perhaps you think I am trying to compete with your pics.

Then why did you not like mine? :dry:

Why did u assume that I had a box full of cookies?

It's not true, I simply had 2 small Yazdi cookies *so called Qotab* which I divided in half.

See, if you had one cookie and ate any of it as against giving it all to the children. -1.

Take back ur (-1)…

-2 ^_^

I jest of course. It is best not to judge men for the good they do not do, but for that good that they did.

Lovely to the power of ∞!

Are you finished your tanty? As my older foster sister used to say to me, with unbelievably annoying calm, whenever I complained.

What a girlish thing to say. :huh:

That is better. I would like to see them.

But of course there is no need to limit yourself to beggars.

You seem to have an interesting story Servidor.

Not really. :unsure:

Well actually if you look close enough, everyone has an interesting life story.

I agree. I actually write short stories you know. The best short stories begin with a very ordinary place and very ordinary people. Things that could actually happen to be people who could actually exist.

I wish we could have a thread where everyone told their stories... but that would be risky with privacy issues and all.

I am actually quite open. Everyone who has read my poor poetry or contributions to CM's lovely and underrated Pic and Meditation thread knows all about me; and that girls are stupid and I hate them. . .

With the thread. Just be vague about locations, names of people [use initials] and the like. Could work.

Now, Photo Bucket has ceased being a prat.

Here are some old ones of places I have not posted yet. My photographs of people shall come in December/January.

Si Dominvs volverit. If the Lord shall will it.

There all of my sins were drowned in the consecrated water.

Ecce nova facio omnia.

Behold - I make all things new.

[ii] Cedars of Libanus -

SAM_2720.jpg

I do like them. In the prophets they can symbolise virility and height, proximity to God.

Ivstvs vt palma florebit sicvt cedrvs Libani mvltiplicabitvr.

The just man shall flourish like the palm-tree; he shall grow up like the cedar of Libanus.

They can also symbolise pride.

Vox Domini svper aqvas. Devs maiestatis intonvit. Dominvs svper aqvas mvltas.

Vox Domini in virtvte. Vox Domini in magnificentia.

Vox Domini confringentis cedros et confringet Dominvs cedros Libani.

The voice of the Lord upon the waters. The God of Majesty hath thundered. The Lord upon many waters.

The voice of the Lord in power. The voice of the Lord in magnifience.

The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars - and the Lord shall break the cedars of Libanus.

A devout former principal planted them. He planted every tree mentioned in the Sacred Scriptures in the consecrated grounds.

A Boring Day at the PC Hotel:

Nice pictures sis, liked the traditional dolls... Kawaiiii!

^^ I didnt even notice the 'eh' suffix for kojaa'eh thanks to your korean accent, you would have sounded like you were saying "where your father" :wacko:

I thought that ''pedaret kajaa'eh'' means - where are your father from?

But what I really wanted to ask is ''pedaret koja ast?'' - where is your father?

Fekr mikonam eshtebah goftam, :no:

Why do you title the video, and pictures: "Child Beggars" :no: They are beautiful Kids!!!!! NOT child beggars. :dry:

Indeed, you're right dear sister! pardon my behaviour..

But I have hundred of pictures taken of children, and to remember the story behind every pic I used to title them. ex: if it's a photo of a child with leukemia I'll lable the pic ( child cancer), a child with end-stage renal disease ( a CKD child)... and a child begging for money ( a child beggar).

[iii] The cedar of Libanus under which I first began to teach myself Latin

Well I have to say I'm impressed, +1, +2, no no +100000

I'm definetly going to learn latin, this is what I've learned so far::

>> musculus abductor and adductor pollicis longus, flexor digitorum profundus, maximus, minimus, brevis, palmaris, semimembranosus, quadratus,superficialist, et cetera.

Ok, and before going to sleep, let me share these pics.

My dearly beloved brother visited me this weekend. We went to the city center, took many awesome pictures and we had a great time together.

I'm going to miss him when he goes back to uni. It's so damn boring when he's not around. :cry:

Very good pictures. Dolls. I need to buy something for the nieces. I was thinking real matryoshka dolls, but they shall likely just break them. :dry: Those look more durable but I obviously have no way of buying them. And I do not want any Western dolls. :no: And what else to buy little girls but dolls? :huh:

Well I have to say I'm impressed, +1, +2, no no +100000

I'm definetly going to learn latin, this is what I've learned so far::

>> musculus abductor and adductor pollicis longus, flexor digitorum profundus, maximus, minimus, brevis, palmaris, semimembranosus, quadratus,superficialist, et cetera.

Pleased to impress. :angel:

A horrible thing to say, but if I had known how much of an asset Latin is in conversation - I would have learned it years ago for the wrong reasons: = girls. Of late I have found it would have worked almost as well as being able to dance [infinitely superior to liquor and gets a higher calibre of girl than money]. :donno: Horrible thing to think about the Church's sacred language.

Yes, in the study of medicine you would be met with many of our words. So too in geology, botany, zoology, chemistry and ectera.

And you want to learn it? I would offer to help this very moment, but between your post count and Macisaac it is impossible.

Servidor, agreed, they don't have to be beggars. So here are a few pics of random people I captured. (beautiful pics of the Church btw!)

Thank you. I love that church. An outpost of eternity in time.

But my is that a dated assault rifle.

I doubt I shall be able to find anyone with a gun standing about in the street in Australia, but - my brother is with a Serbian girl. The men of their tribe like to hunt. So if I am there long enough I might be able to take photographs of, and fire, some post-Soviet - :rolleyes: - designed rifles; and plenty of pictures of dead deer and rabbits of course.
