Tacky building number 2, originally uploaded by nazarian.

This is building in downtown Indianapolis. It's the headcourters of Indianapolis Power and Light company.

The lights change with the season - during X-mas it's a Chrismass tree, and on Haloween it's a pumpkin.

I was going through my photo collection and noticed something.

When I was taking this picture in Yerevan, Armenia, my intent was to shoot the Andranik Zoravar statue with the Grigor Lusavorich temple in the background. I took it from distance so that the little tree would distract the viewer from the non-manicured lawn around the church, as well as to minimize the visual impact of the ugly landscape. By contrast, the area around the private tiny amusement park is nicely landsacped (on the left hand side).

As you look at the flowers and the mowed grass, notice the guy who has his head turned back. And notice the angle of his glance.

Yes, he is checking out the ass of the chick in a red T-shirt :). Normally, it would be an OK thing to do (all the guys do it), and I think women are flattered since they put so much effort into being noticed. But the guy is with another woman. That's blatantly amateurish. In these cases, you use your peripheral vision (as recommended in the '40 year old virgin' movie).

This is the Hala Sultan Tekke mosque in Larnaca, Cyprus. It's located at the shore of the Salt Lake which is dry during most of the year. it's a peaceful and tranquil place.

The mosque is currently undergoing a renovation. In its usual Turkophile fashion, the government of the USA is the funding entity of this project. I hope the money stays in the free areas of Cyprus. The laborers are probably Turks imported from the occupied Northern Cyprus. I guess this is one way the US can funnel non-illegal money to their dear Turks.

This is my mom's cat demanding food.

You can't see it but this skinny mutt is covered with scratches and scabs: he is a warrior. His left ear is torn into two as well. He purrs when you hug him but then he hisses at you and bites your hand.

From the Muttnik Series.
