Flashes from the Other World is a deliciously hard to describe snapshot of the quirky, and offbeat magic realism of Julie Weinstein. In this story collection relationships are presented with a tender wackiness. Tossed into the mix are mischievous ghosts (most of which are like well meaning relatives) which give the talking plants and even the seductive and vocal grains of sand a run for their money. One thing for sure in Flashes from the Other World is it’s a not-to-be-forgotten, off-the-wall delightful series of mini trips filled with characters that touch the heart, even if they tug at the funny bone first.

A short review from me ALoN DaviD
Flashes From The Other World is a wonderful read. The short stories simply lure you in and open up a whole new world. Julie Ann Weinstein’s short stories are flash fiction at its best. So many twist and turns, dreams and amazing characters that echo long after the book is closed. All these components are so wonderfully tied together. A fantastic read for any fiction fan.

Relax, unwind and envision yourself on the exotic island of Hawaii. Always a traveler and forever humbled by the beauty of nature, ALoN DaviD takes this five day get-away to Hawaii as a rare opportunity to do some still life photography. There’s nothing that escapes the click of his camera. From dolphins dipping in the sea, shorelines bursting against rough terrain, foliage covered in odd dots, a turtle’s lazy drift in the open ocean, a wave curling over in a perfectly clear barrel and a rainbow stretching its smooth arch out across the dewy sky. Even the rocks, balancing precariously, seem to have been staged for ALoN’s camera. Every scene creates the perfect still shot and the desire to see these places in person.
Still shot photography – perfect for catalogs, brochures, websites, product labels, billboard and much more! Believe it not, even your stationary objects evoke an emotional response. An item can quickly trigger your most comfortable memory, whisk you down memory lane, taking you away to “what if” or “remember when.” New, old, big or small, inanimate objects designed to advertise. They’re all inspired by nature, sculpted by man and photographed by ALoN DaviD Photography.
Everyone knows the zing and zip sound, squiggling through the air, spiraling up into the dark sky. There is a split second of silence, just before the Earth shaking BOOM! The tiny firework explodes into a dramatic bouquet of color. Reds, greens, blues, yellows and every color of the rainbow stretch and reach out across the midnight sky. Each firework bragging and boosting their best, striving to out do the last. Families and friends gather to watch to the show. Couples snuggle up on blankets, kids lay in their parents arms and gasp of “oh’s” and “ah’s” are heard everywhere. All the while ALoN David is snap photo after photo, capturing the bright colored burst in film forever.
Sometimes the best plan, is no plan. Its the sand in your toe, its a dip in the ocean, its riding a wave, its a relaxing day at Sunset Cliffs. A casual spring day at the beach with the camera turned out excellent! In one shot a woman contemplates the wave set and with deliberate placement of the camera, ALoN caught what could be her own self reflection in her board. In another shot, you can feel the unity of regulars at their favorite surf spot. Its a culture, its a way of life, its Rip Curl, its San Diego, its ALoN DaviD Photography.
Just for fun- If ever there was a moment you wish you had your camera this would be it. But when you don’t you improvise! Las Vegas was captured with just an iPhone. Anything from colored m&m’s to elephant waterfalls to the Wynn Hotel and the night lights of the Venetian, is proof that you can take a camera away from a photographer but you can’t take the photographer out ALoN DaviD
