Midnight Moonlit Bending Road To The Full Moon – IMRAN™
The sturgeon full moon hung low over my neighborhood homes as the dogs and I went out for a midnight walk. The curving boulevard seems to be bending to take the night traveler towards the full moon. The deep blue sky and vivid green grass complement the golden glowing abodes in the magic of a handheld iPhone long exposure photo.

DJI Phantom 4 Drone Shows Stingray Swimming Towards My JetSki – IMRAN™
This is just an 8-seconds clip from my now 4 years old DJI Phantom 4 drone. I just happened to see it on a large screen 4K monitor and realized that the drone had captured a stingray “flying” underwater, swimming straight towards the jetski. I was idling just off the dock of my blessed home in Apollo Beach, Florida, on a picture-perfect tranquil day. Can you make it out?
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.
Kennedy was clearly excited (as always) during his first visit to the Tampa RiverWalk. He is so well-behaved even without a leash, even with people and other dogs around catching his interest. Of course, I do keep him on a leash walking in or going to public places, for safety. The RiverWalk area is a great place to enjoy beautiful experiences and company, whether you sit, stand, walk, run, or even bike or cruise through it. Moving/words/verbs? 😉
I went into the water as I flew the DJI Phantom 4 overhead for a moody dusk sunset livestream. I captured a few photos of us from different angles. This was stitched from 3 separate photos. Can you see Kennedy and me?
What a joy to be able to see this photo and bow my head in gratitude at what I am blessed to call home on Tampa Bay, in Apollo Beach, Florida. Kennedy and I went into the water as I flew the DJI Phantom 4 overhead for a moody dusk sunset livestream. I captured a few photos of us from different angles. This was stitched from 3 separate photos. Can you see Kennedy and me?
A screenshot of a part of the stunning panorama made from 9 un-retouched, unedited and unprocessed in ANY way, iPhone X photos. The photos were SOOC (straight out of camera), and were simply auto-stitched in PhotoShop to make a magnificent panorama. Thus is just a sliver of the stunning scene inside the Bellagio, Las Vegas. That is one of my favorite hotels to stay at there. The dazzling display of explosive colors shower tranquility of a natural garden with the typical brash bold styles of Las Vegas..
Lovers Cry Out In Unison At Dusk, As Pelican At Singing Sunset Hovers Like Humming Birds – IMRAN™
Sunsets sometimes sing silently, as flapping pelicans in a chorus hover across the crescendos of red and gold clouds,. The dusk settles into its gentle chorus, singing a sweet lullaby of love and passion, odes to dreams and desires, unloading beams of lights and hard shafts of shadows, as the sultry night serenades the hot sun, and the wetness of Tampa Bay is coated in the hues of solitude, soaking in the whiteness of life into the blend of ecstasy, Come, my loves, be mine, at sunset, where fantasy becomes reality, and reality becomes you, and you become mine.
They talk about breaking bread to get closer to people. I’m just a big fan of bread, except a few types, like Naan, Poori, some Parathaa, croissants, and such. But I’m more than happy to partake in a meal that’s got no bread, but plenty to munch on. In this case, what better way to mark a wish for peace on earth than by having pieces of fish from the ocean. A Muslim American, out feeling alive racing my motorcycle in the dead of winter, on the eve of a holiday important to Christians, having a traditional meal of Buddhist and other-religion celebrating nations. Enjoy the 3D View that almost makes you want to grab a piece. Peace!
I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and loved ones. I was blessed enough to spend it at my blessed home in Apollo Beach, Florida. After nearly 6 or more weeks I was able to make time to get out on the water and enjoy the absolutely perfect boating weather that Tampa Bay offers almost year-round. This is just a quick spin on the jet ski as I was coming back home from a great time and ride out to beer can Island.
