Blooming Beauties At Long Island New York Home A Decade Ago – IMRAN™

Life can get so hectic, and digital cameras along with massive hard drives can cause beautiful moments and images to get filed away, out of sight, and sometimes out of mind.

It is great to stumble upon images like this, presented to you as it was taken by the Nikon D300, with not the slightest editing or tweaking. SOOC. Straight Out Of Camera. Well, I added my name to it

It was taken 10 years ago at my blessed home on Long Island, NY, during some of the darkest days of my life in America. Things were still bleak after the economic meltdown of 2008-2009, but the Obama recovery had begun. But it would take another month or two after this photo was taken before I saw light at the end of the tunnel.

I am so grateful that I was able to continue to stay positive and stop to at least photograph the flowers if not to smell them, especially if they are not all really aromatic but simply gorgeous to look at.

My Boat Slip, A Sailboat & Stunning Sunset Skies At Long Island Home Marina – IMRAN™

…stunning shades of dusk and magical clouds against the beautiful boating scene…

Walking back home from the beach, after yesterday’s gorgeous sunset livestream, I took the longer part of the boardwalk back home.

This way I could catch the stunning shades of dusk and magical clouds against the beautiful boating scene at my boat slip.

My neighbor’s sailboat enhanced the view.

Come along for a walk on my boardwalk in New York as a beautiful Long Island sunset acts as a backdrop for exciting views of a powered parachute flying by while I get up close and personal with a mama deer and her baby.

Then watch birds and boats pass by me at the beach while the colors of dusk fill the sky.

Butterflies Are Free – IMRAN™

Way to go Mark Zuckerberg, turning a jolly light afternoon into one of extreme irritation. FU. Frankly, Underwhelmed by the ‘intelligence’ of FaceBook engineers.

Beautiful summer day on Long Island, New York, at my blessed home. Looking out the sliding doors I saw a reminder of why I love having planted four butterfly bushes years ago. They grow massive and even 12 feet tall or higher before being trimmed by the landscapers. Some days they’re covered in monarch butterflies. The bushes, not the landscapers. 😄

Today I saw these two bright yellow and dark blue spotted ones despite it being a windy day. I was able to get close to them and record, create and upload this fun little movie right from my iPhone 6S+. NO color editing or setting or filter of Any kind.

PS Absolutely ƒ-\/-©-|{-!-N-G stupid FaceBook system deleted this video with a false claim that it contained someone else’s copyrighted material? Really someone else owns my home and butterfly bush? And the stupid music in the video is actually one of the free BUILT-IN themes for use free in Apple’s own FREE iMovie app for iOS. Goddamn stupid policing of wrong stuff while anyone can take your photos and create fake profiles without anything being done by these morons to verify your profile so victims of the fake profiles at least know it was not you. Way to go Mark Zuckerberg, turning a jolly light afternoon into one of extreme irritation. FU. Frankly, Underwhelmed by the ‘intelligence’ of FaceBook engineers.

Cold Spring Weekend Sunset At Heron Pointe Home Marina – IMRAN™

…on some days, like today. I was able to enjoy a stunning Long Island south shore sunset that is comparable to the average great Tampa Bay sunset…

Pastel Tranquility – IMRAN™

Stunning pastels underscore vivid golden bursts of magic in the sky

Stunning pastels underscore vivid golden bursts of magic in the sky at dusk over my blessed home beach on Long Island, New York, in East Patchogue. The private beach is secluded and seductive as the Great South Bay’s gentle waters roll in to my feet.

We may desire for our lives to be eternal Springs, of youth and new joys. We yearn for our days to be endless Summers of bright, sunny, blue-sky filled days.

We may want to never be exposed to the cold brutalities of life’s Winters. But, winters do come in every life. And they have to be lived and experienced. As they start casting their longer, colder, crueler shadow across the days of our lives, things fall around us.

But, there is an irony in the seasons, fate and life. Fall, as life that sprung forth last spring, falls by the wayside. Yet, it is also the only time we are given a choice to see and appreciate such dazzling, stunning colors, as only Fall can bring. It gives us one last hurrah of color, to tide us over the cold days we know lie ahead, with the promise of a new life in the new year. And so the circle of life goes. And so it goes.

Driving home from running some errands I was amazed at the brilliant fall foliage colors that were highlighted by the sun’s late afternoon glow. I went home, picked up the camera and headed back to take these pictures.

Oh, God! Perfect Stillness, Ablaze In Stunning Red & Pastel Sunset Shades

Perfect Stillness, My Home Boat Slip, Ablaze In Stunning Red & Pastel Sunset Shades - IMRAN™

I am so blessed. All my life, despite ups and downs, at no stage has God not granted me every wish I have had. Some have taken longer than others. Some have been won and lost, but nearly every single wish has been granted and I know the best is yet to come.

This picture of my boat slip at home, in East Patchogue, Long Island, New York has its own messages hidden in plain view.

How can we not, then, see the power of God moving in every moment of stillness around me? How can we not see the brilliance of his work deep inside every shadow?

Even when something seems upside down, is it not merely a reflection of something beautiful right above and ahead?

Thank you, God.
