Panorama: Ocean and Beach

Thought this was pretty cool…


Panorama of Ocean and Beach.


Made it look the the ocean is in between the beach.


Love the “special effect.”


Feels a little like Moshes who led the Israelites through the (Red) Sea.


Anyway, nice to get away a little and see life through a different lens. 😉


Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach!

Trickle Of A Waterfall

Waterfall.jpeg

Took this picture in New Jersey last weekend. 

Went for a nice walk around this man-made lake…very pretty. 

At one end, almost like an infinity pool that merges into it’s surroundings, a trickle of waterfall overflows here into the moss below. 

From this position, the lake itself was at eye level, so it was cool seeing it almost as if you are part of the lake itself. 

For me that was a special effect, and felt very one with nature and the universe. 😉

Exodus Hollywood Style 2014


Very excited about the new Exodus movie coming next month. 



Looks high budget action and with great special effects.



Hopefully, not a disappointment like Noah (2014 film)–I don’t think it will be. 



Good wins over evil–well, we all know that already from the Bible!



According to the Passover Haggadah, we are supposed to retell every year, from generation to generation, our story of going from the cruel enslavement by evil dictators to the redemption by the merciful Almighty G-d.



It’s timeless and our history!  😉



(Note: Full movie name is Exodus G-ds and Kings, but there is only one G-d.)

See It Change

Door Pink Orange Yellow
This was a pretty cool effect at this hotel (The Sonesta) in Fort Lauderdale, where we stopped to cool off for a few minutes.



In the lobby, they have these wavy lines over the entire walls and doors where you come in. 



But what is even better is that the lines change color.



Here you can see three pictures of a door in the lobby.



One minute they are pink, next orange, and then yellow. 



The funny thing is I barely noticed it when I was there.



It is was such a subtle change.



Maybe that’s the way to make change really take in your life–incrementally, rather than violently and abruptly.



Then instead of withdrawal and personal convulsions, you have a new and hopefully better you! 😉
