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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
It is another windy day though much less so than the last two days. Walking by the bay windows I saw this pelican come into view. I managed to fire up the iPhone 7 to get this short clip of the bird and the magnificent day.
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.
