Hi Folks! Its Me, Markospoon, Your Favorite Negril Storyteller in Stunning 3D! Cool Huh?

I Write Colorful Articles About a Dimension of Negril the Most Tourists Rarely See.

This has led me to create this blog in order to save and display my stories along with all of my 3D photos just for you my many tourist fans. I'm doing it in cooperation with the 2 author / webmasters of the NEGRIL JAMAICA TOURIST VIDIA, a free, 1500 page exhaustive visual encyclopedia - directory website of Negril.

My articles are about my actual experiences doing various goofy things at various interesting places all over Negril. So I sometimes utilize this reference website's photos, videos and maps here to visually portray some of the tourist enterprises, activities and attractions that I mention that are in this beautiful Jamaican tourist town.

Through my articles and the visuals that I've posted here you will quickly learn why I and so many other tourists love this little town so much.

The following is an endless loop slide show of the 3D photos which I shot when I was down in Negril in December 2010. Enjoy Mon!

This kind of a no glasses 3D slide show has now become possible because of start3d.com's exciting new 3D technology for blogs and websites. With it, all of my 3D photos may be viewed here or in thumbnails in my album on their website or in a larger size on my page on the Negril Jamaica Tourist Vidia.

And should you go there, you can also view a twin slide show of my 3D photos in the much deeper displaying anaglyph format (which does require the 3D glasses to be focused and viewed). In that format, my 3D photos can be displayed in full screen mode to show you an even more fascinating 3D view of each of these scenes.

The clouds were coming our way!

I just decided to walk.

Sorry taxi dudes trying to give me a ride, I'm walking today.

I was strolling down the road in Negril and decided to take it to the beach.

A lot harder walking in the sand than the road, but seeing the water makes me feel better.

I started at the Tree House Resort and made my way towards downtown.

I got to one of my favorite watering holes and just sat there for a spell.

I downed a couple of Red Stripes and continued on my journey.

It's amazing how quick a cold bottle of beer can go.

On my way down the beach, I stopped to talk to a craft vendor guy who was selling his wares right there on the beach.

I was looking at the sky and said "Man, look at the dark clouds, I think I'd better look for some cover."

"It will pass", the guy said.

But, it's gonna rain!

"The rain is a blessing" he said, "No reason to run, it will be light".

Feel the wetness, feel the wind, take in the aroma of the rain and all it touches"

So, I just stayed where I was.

While we talked, I felt a droplet hit my cheek, then another.

Hmmm, well I thought, I have on swimming trunks, sandals and a cotton shirt, I guess I will be ok.

The drops of rain falling were very small, maybe 10-15 seconds apart.

Then the rain picked up a little, became very steady, but light while the man and I just stood there.

It was a warm day and the little sprinkle, along with a light breeze really cooled me off.

It felt good!

I could still smell food cooking and music was going and a lot of locals still went about their business as usual.

Being outdoors, dealing with and feeling the weather, is key to understanding a lot of things on the island of Jamaica.

I really like all the things that nature gives and takes there in it's never ending demonstration of her force and energy.

I was staring up and out to sea for a while.

After a minute I looked at the gentleman and I could see a little sly smile on his face. Like he knew he had taught me something.

It was obvious that I was enjoying the rain, like he must do all the time.

That was the first time in a loooong while that I stood out in the rain without an umbrella.

Soon, maybe 15 minutes, the rain passed and the sun came out in full force.

"Thanks for the "weather education" I told the guy."

Moral of the story: If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at can change and change you too!
