Look…closely…and you can see the lizard, not just a nice view of CT’s front porch.
When I interviewed Florida native Chris Taylor (whose new album, Take Me Anywhere, is excellent. Read my interview here) a few weeks ago, I asked him if he ever saw the lizards I hear are scurrying about the state. “One just ran past my foot!” he laughed. “I’m serious. I was coming in from outside and it was on my porch!” It was at that moment I asked him to take a picture of these tiny reptiles, and he assured me that he would. Days turned into weeks, and I admit that I was wondering if Chris Taylor was a man of his word. In a couple e-mails and IM conversations, he told me that he was trying, but the little critters were just so darn fast. Sure, they are, Chris.
Of course, at the time, I didn’t realize that Chris was attempting to take these pictures with his iPhone, not a Canon camera, which would be my photography instrument of choice.
However, when I checked my e-mail this evening, guess what? There were not one, but two pictures of Florida lizards. One of the pics even has a pair of lizards in it! Chris Taylor isn’t just a singing, songwriting rockin’ worship-type guy; he’s a man who promises lizard pictures and then delivers. By the way, you can catch him on tour this fall with the Robbie Seay Band. When you do, ask him to show you some lizard pics. I’m sure he would be happy to oblige.
Here’s a couple of the little guys. They look like anoles to me. I just wanted to mention that Chris Taylor is one of the funniest human beings on planet earth. He’s also deeply passionate about God, the Bible, theology, and his family. Very cool guy.
