2019 Beautiful Boating Blue Bay BCI Beach BC Before COVID 19 - IMRAN™

2019 Beautiful Boating Blue Bay BCI Beach BC Before COVID 19 - IMRAN™
Even though this was just over a year ago, in some ways it looks like a different era. Mid-May 2019, I captured this video in a short live stream on my jetski bobbing on the wakes and waves of Tampa Bay boaters next to Beer Can Island's beach on the east side.

K2 German Shredder Training While Chill Champ Kennedy Relaxes - IMRAN™


K2 German Shredder Training While Chill Champ Kennedy Relaxes - IMRAN™
Another from the early videos of K2, the GSD puppy, learning to be a German Shredder. The older but still young although wise and very chill German Shepherd Kennedy just ignores the puppy's antics.

Orion Crosses The Pre-Dawn Sky Above My Home, As The World Turns - IMRAN™

Orion Crosses The Pre-Dawn Sky Above My Home, As The World Turns - IMRAN™
One of the many magics of the universe that I do not get enough time to savor, study, and share is simply the stunning sky right above our very heads. This was a nearly 4-hours timelapse from about 2-6 AM. 
I captured it with the Nikon D850 pointed to the South as Orion crossed the sky above my blessed home in Apollo Beach, Florida. Even here the light pollution from Saint Petersburg to the right makes it harder to see the stars on that side. 
It was interesting to see the pre-pre-dawn light breaking over the western sky start to flash to the left of the screen at about 5:30 AM. They were not house lights. 
Maybe they were sky angel cops chasing Orion around the universe, flashing red and blue, early in the morning. No matter what light you favor in the elections, red or blue, I am hopeful for the rise of a new dawn, of hope, justice, decency, democracy, and love.

Kennedy & K2 Chill Watching Boats On Tampa Bay & A Florida Sunset - IMRAN™


Kennedy & K2 Chill Watching Boats On Tampa Bay & A Florida Sunset - IMRAN™
Quick clip from the iPhone from K2's first week with me. Yes, I know, I have not even uploaded all the cutest videos from April yet. This one was as much to share the sunset and boating scene with you as to show these two beautiful German Shepherds who enjoy these with me.

Where The Heck Is Hope Hicks? - IMRAN™

 

Where The Heck Is Hope Hicks? - IMRAN™
Unless Trump somehow got Hope Hicks pregnant and has sent her into hiding, am I somehow missing any mention of her in the news? It was almost a month ago that she tested positive for... something. And since then, no news of her recovering, working from quarantine, being in a coma, or pregnant with orange demon sperm.
Wishing all the traitor-enabling sycophants ill does not mean wishing them dead. But it would be interesting to see if someone that close to Dr. Death Drumpf croaked from the 'hoax' virus that was going from 15 cases to zero as he claimed in February. Now the MilkMan Pence is going to take the fall as the head of the coronavirus task force has 5 people in his circle test positive with the disease.
What pre-existing condition would Trump accuse Hope Hicks of having... treasonitis? Sycophancilitis? Syphillis?

Dogs Are A Man(Go)'s Best Friends - IMRAN™


Dogs Are A Man(Go)'s Best Friends - IMRAN™

Having been born and raised in Pakistan, but having traveled the world, I know that the mangoes from Punjab in Pakistan are literally the kings of all fruits from anywhere on the planet. Knowing that how could I not introduce my precious new German Shepherd puppy K2 to that fruit? Kennedy had previously had it while being with me. As you can see, K2 was totally into it, when he had been with me one week. The wet doggy bed is from his having been in the swimming pool earlier. Kennedy and K2 both enjoyed their first tastes. Both decided that German Shepherd Dogs Are A Man(Go)'s Best Friends.

60 Seconds Mind-Blowing Tampa Bay Boating Sunset (Nikon D850 Music Video) - IMRAN™


60 Seconds Mind-Blowing Tampa Bay Boating Sunset (Nikon D850 Music Video) - IMRAN™ 
Two jet skis race by as a cargo container sidles past the exquisite colors of this sunset. Enjoy the 1-minute music video. 
Full-fledged DSLR cameras like the Nikon D850 can take some great pictures as you have seen. Video recording ability was one of the reasons I waited for this model. But it is very hard to do handheld casual videos, especially when trying to manually zoom in by rotating the tight barrel of the 70-300mm Nikkor lens. 
It leads to a twisting motion on the hand holding the camera, and the video will show those movements. But still, I had wanted to zoom in on the mind-blowing colors of this sunset on Tampa Bay. This was at my blessed home in Apollo Beach, Florida.

Red Hot Memories Of Heavenly Blue Views At Harbour Island, Eleuthera, Bahamas, Caribbean, At Romantic Getaway Spot - IMRAN™


Red Hot Memories Of Heavenly Blue Views At Harbour Island, Eleuthera, Bahamas, Caribbean, At Romantic Getaway Spot - IMRAN™ (PG13 text)
A low-resolution video taken in 2007, this has poor quality compared to what we see these days even in cell phones. But it is still enough to show the heavenly views of the Caribbean facing East at the beautiful Coral Sands resort in Eleuthera, Bahamas. The sand there is literally powder soft and pure pink.
One of my then beloved girlfriends loved to travel as much as I did. This was one of the great trips she took us on.
Of the primary colors RGB (red-green-blue), Red was the one that seemed totally absent in this scene. But that is where I come in to add color to life and love.
We made some remarkable red hot deep and intense memories as I had her desire more and more at this spot. The balcony wide open to see and to the sea, glass windows all around, sounds of other couples nearby, the ordinary balcony chair in that instant became a precious loveseat.
A throne for a precious princess to ride to glory oblivious to what public mores against public amore might demand.  And that was when the purest passionate pleasures came in unison...
I still recall seeing the blue sea and blue sky in her penetrating blue eyes as she melted in a puddle of desire. What a magical moment, leaving our mark wherever we went and came.
It is interesting how people come and go from our lives. That girl is an ex-GF for more than a dozen years but the memories are always to be cherished for a lifetime. Ironically, this is also where I met and became friends with Suzette who is here on FB and a beloved beautiful friend even today.

Orient Point NY Ferry Ride To New London CT 10 Years Ago - IMRAN™



Orient Point NY Ferry Ride To New London CT 10 Years Ago - IMRAN™
Among the over 150,000 digital photos and videos I have not had a chance to post, this was a good one to share literally 10 years (and 3 days) after I first recorded it. The iPhone 4 video was recorded during one of my favorite 'boat rides' -- the ferry ride from Orient Point, Long Island, New York, to New London, Connecticut, on my way to Boston, Massachusetts, as I was doing frequently back in late 2010. Enjoy the 2010 video with my 2020 music track, Be/Coming Breathless.

Incredible Inspirational Ideas Terrific Timelapse Tampa Bay Boating Beautiful Sunset Scene Shared - IMRAN™


Incredible Inspirational Ideas Terrific Timelapse Tampa Bay Boating Beautiful Sunset Scene Shared - IMRAN™ (Inspiration Words, Music Video)
A foreboding mood settled on the horizon while the bright blue sky above tried to liven it up below. The deep red bled from the sky was bleeding into the melting gold, like the way men throughout history have shed the blood of others to gain wealth and power. The onshore wind slapped the water into a persistent pattern of little crests and troughs, each a tiny tempest in its own world, yet totally insignificant on the ocean of time.  The palm trees danced a frenzied dance wanting to fly responding to the wild wind but rooted forever in the circumstance of their existence. Yet, it all comes together, like a miracle, when all these elements, and forces of light and dark, movement and stillness, unite to hasten the end of the darkness, in preparation for a new day's dawn shared by all of them. All of us. Let us unite again, as Americans, as Pakistanis, as earth-dwellers, and as humans, to start a new chapter before the end of the year.
I hope you enjoy this music video The horizon was a little more darkly cloudy than I would have preferred for it to be a long drawn out colors sunset and dusk. But who am I to complain when the result is still so much to be grateful for. This is a timelapse video made from literally almost 2000 individual photos taken by the Nikon D850. Each image was 25-30 MB so that would have taken forever to process. I just wanted to test how the results would be, so I actually made this from images just 5-10% of the original size.

Sparring K2 Takes On Kennedy On Dock At Home - IMRAN™



Sparring K2 Takes On Kennedy On Dock At Home - IMRAN™

This year is effectively over. Despite all the craziness, it has flown by. I am still catching up on posting the cite videos and photos of K2. Here he is exactly 9 weeks old. He has known Kennedy a full week, and just like since Day 1, he loves play-fighting. He is taking on Kennedy, my loving and wise older, and at that time much bigger, German Shepherd Dog in a sparring and wrestling match on the dock of my blessed home, where I was watching a sunset and saying my Maghreb prayers and offering gratitude to the Almighty for everything. Enjoy K2's antics, Kennedy's plays, and the joy that having a puppy and a beautiful dog guarantees.

Good Boy K2 Tells Bold Boy Kennedy To Heed NO TRESPASSING Sign IMRAN™



Good Boy K2 Tells Bold Boy Kennedy To Heed NO TRESPASSING Sign - IMRAN™
They say German Shepherd Dogs are very smart. They also are bold and will sometimes push the limits. For example, Kennedy went on to a neighboring dock to get a look towards our home to the right on the water. But K2, the 9 weeks old GSD puppy, seems to literally stop at the NO TRESPASSING sign and then scolds Kennedy when he returns to us. To his credit, you can see Kennedy look down at the sign as if he has just read it for the first time. LOL.

Week-1 9-Weeks Old K2 On Windy Dock Tampa Bay Florida - IMRAN™


Week-1 9-Weeks Old K2 On Windy Dock - IMRAN™ K2 was going to turn nine weeks old the next day when we spent some time on the dock on Tampa Bay on a cloudy and very windy evening. I did reduce the noise level - but not to zero so that you can hear his sounds talking to Kennedy. Check how observant he is of passing boats, as well as how confident playing with the much larger, older, but very patient German Shepherd Dog, Kennedy. © 2020 IMRAN™
