Oh, B(u)oy! – IMRAN™

Oh, B(u)oy! Buoy 36 is actually supposed to mark the marine channel in the Great South Bay about half a mile away South of my beach, midpoint between my home and Davis Park & Watch Hill on Fire Island. It is the buoy that I have used as a reference point hundreds of times while boatingin the last 20 years, to turn from the main channel towards my home and marina.

During a recent windy day it appears to have become dislodged and floated its way to the private beach at my home community. This WindowsPhone Lumia 1020 photo, taken at sunset tonight, shows how big these things are even though while boating they can be hard to spot in the distance. Hopefully no boaters are using it for late night navigation or they will definitely run aground to shouts of “Oh, BoyI Oh, Buoy! Oh, $#!^!”

Falling For Fall As Sun Falls Below NY Horizon – IMRAN™

Stunning Long Island New York Beach At Home Imran Anwar

As the cold air starts to creep in from the North, the sun starts to slide to set more over the water than land on the South Shore of Long Island, New York. The moisture squeezed out of the air also makes for crisper cooler air to breathe in but also for sharper photographs. Dusk scene at my blessed home beach in NY, taken with my new WindowsPhone Lumia 1020.

Stairway To Heaven, Walkway To The Sun

POSTER: See & Read Words Below: Stairway To Heaven, Walkway To The Sun - IMRAN™

By Imran Anwar

The bright heavy setting sun on June 14, 2009 seemed floating in air. It sat just near the end of the bowardwalk, at Smith Point Park beach, just beyond the signs for the TWA Flight 800 Memorial, like an easy stairway to heaven.

Here we are on earth, walking or flying, thinking we own it, yet we are so insignificant.

One tiny wobble of that white orb in the sky and we are all history. Even if it remains perfectly aligned forever, we are certain to be history.

So many voices that had walked these paths, these stairways, before us. All gone, as we one day will. Some of them are remembered, many forgotten; lost, first to memories, then to history, and then to eternity. Would we be remembered? And, why?

Theres a feeling I get
When I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking

It seemed so easy to reach, yet so far away. It felt burning hot in a cold blue sky.

It inspired me to experiment with this picture and the words of Stairway To Heaven just seemed so appropriate….

It made me wonder, it makes me wonder, and it will always make me wonder.

What about you?
