#12 / 2016 – Wordless or Wordy Wednesday

iguana, black and white, monochrome, close up

 *** Here is where I link up today. ***

Please help me spread the word about my Saturday Art Linkup and grab my badge below:


I hope that over time we will be building a community dedicated to art and creating. I rather like these words said by Andy Warhol:


Don’t think about making art, just get it done.

Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. 

While they are deciding, make even more art.” 

Why don’t you join me along my journey and follow me on fbgo and tw if you prefer and see what I come up with next. You may, of course, also [et_bloom_inline optin_id=”optin_3″]

Drop me a comment and you’ll make me smile!

    • It was in the wild, but apparently other tourists feed them – even if they should not – so they actually come pretty close, maybe 4 yards? But you have to be careful not be whipped with their tails. Can you believe, while I was shooting this guy there were two more creeping up on me from behind – that actually scared me a little.

  1. Well hello there handsome! Brilliant close up shot. Was he in your shower? That’s what happened to me the last time I had a tropical vacation. LOL

    • Not such a big story. They are really all over on Bonaire. This one here surprised me a little with his companions who snuck up on my back while I was taking his portrait. But I escaped. With the shot. I had my trusty 70-200. Iguana usually stay still for a bit which is great to get a sharp picture 🙂

  2. I love your quote.

    Have a great week Happy Wordless Wednesday. XX Don

    • They are great words. Very true and I have to repeat them to me often when I am creating photo or other art pieces.

      I would have loved to ‘visit’ you, Don, but unfortunately I cannot find your virtual home 🙁

  3. Claudia, your subject is very dramatic featured in B&W. I will never understand how people keep these things as pets. I hope this isn’t your pet. If so, let me get my foot out of my mouth. 😀 Anywho, the same goes for snakes. I just don’t get it and it creeps me out….totally! But photographing these critters makes for interesting shot. Nice job.

  4. Fierce photo!
    When I was in the Virgin Islands they were everywhere!
    I was terrified of them at first but eventually got up my courage to pet and hand feed them –
    They look fierce but are pretty cool!
    They love to eat the local flowers!

  5. Iguana’s are pretty cool to look at but they are quite the nuisance here in Florida. We have tons of them on the side of the road and you better keep your distance. A few years back when we had an especially cold Winter they were dying by the handful and would fall out of trees because they went into cold shock. It was crazy…

    • Yeah, I know what you mean. That winter must have been quite the sight. We actually got ‘scared’ once. I was in the hammock and we watched one of the iguana climb up a palm tree, not thinking much of it. But then we saw another one underneath it. And all of a sudden that iguana ‘jumped’ off the tree, attacking his rival! I thought he would break every bone. I mean a palmtree is pretty tall… crazy…
