Cool Saturday Night Feverish Tampa Bay Waters After Hot Windy Day - IMRAN™

Cool Saturday Night Fever(ish) Tampa Bay Waters After Hot Windy Day - IMRAN™ 
Even though streaming platforms may not do it justice, this livestream is actually from my super awesome Nikon D850 camera, a gift of a beloved one for my birthday 2 years ago. Since the iPhone 13 Pro Max has such an awesome camera, and it is with me all the time, sometimes I do not get to use this Nikon (or even the now 15 years old D300) as much I would like. Today, as I saw a deep orange color form over the moody sky I decided to do this livestream with the Nikon D850 and it's 4K video. But for file size reasons I only recorded it at regular HD & H.264 compression. The wind-noise reduction is better on this .
It was a hot Saturday and the 90F felt hotter than usual a few hours ago. Now a strong wind, which makes it hard to be heard on camera, makes the temperature more pleasant but definitely not great for audio commentary. In either case, enjoy a spectacular Tampa Bay, Florida, boating sunset livestream with my German Shepherd Dogs, Kennedy and K2, at the dock of my blessed home this wonderful Saturday. Watch for the full moon too in the night sky! 
Missing the return of loved ones into my waiting arms in this corner of paradise soon.

Voulez-Vous? Fabulous Time Watching Fabulous ABBA The Concert With Fabulous Shannon - IMRAN™ (Part 4)

Voulez-Vous? Fabulous Time Watching Fabulous ABBA The Concert With Fabulous Shannon - IMRAN™ (Part 4)

43 years ago, April 1979, I was preparing to go to the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore, Pakistan for my Electronics Engineering studies there 1980-1984, when ABBA released their album Voulez-Vous. It is French for a risqué-ish (for the era) song meaning "Do You Want?". At that time I was keen on learning German and French was lower on my list of interests, as an I Want To Learn It All. 
It was interesting that I got to hear ABBA The Concert (the ABBA tribute group) perform the song when I have been on a daily French lessons streak of nearly 800 days! Ironically, the beautiful, smart, and fabulous Shannon has also taken up French. We are both using DuoLingo on our Apple iPhones. 
Check out this iPhone camera video I recorded from seats quite far from the stage at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida when I took Shannon to this concert. I will also post a link to the actual masters of the game, ABBA, the original legend, performing this live with a dancing crowd at the start of the 1980s. You will agree how accurate this group is in honoring ABBA's sound and experience.
So, as I love to have beautiful blue-eyed blondes like Shannon ask me, Voulez-Vous? And, even without having learned French, my lifelong answer has been, Oui!
