Dusk Nature Walk Private Beach Long Island NY - IMRAN™
This is a recording of my Facebook live stream of tonight. It is of a walk on my boardwalk at dusk, as deer were grazing and boats, sailboats and planes were passing by at the end of a gorgeous summer day on Long Island in New York, on the day of my late father's birth. He had been here 20 years ago.

Wagner's Sacred & Profane Love Atlantic Ocean Ormond Beach Florida Drone View - IMRAN™ (4K UHD)
Profane Loves Are The Most Sacred, in my Book Of Love, Desire, Lust, Passion, and a life lived fulfilling every wish. This video is set to Wagner's opera Tannhauser presented in an IMRAN re-interpretation. Composed in 1845 based on a poet from 1245 AD, the opera has a rather powerful description.... "The story centers on the struggle between sacred and profane love, and redemption through love, a theme running through much of Wagner's mature work."
Sacred and Profane Love (also known as Venus and the Bride) is also an oil painting by Titian, painted c. 1514.
In my book, the most profane loves are the most sacred. And I would travel to the ends of the earth to experience, savor, celebrate, honor, love and cherish them.
I also love the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean on the East Coast of Florida (and New York) as much as I love the stunning red colors of the sunsets on the Gulf Coast at the West Coast of Florida.
That is why it was great to visit the Ormond Beach area for a wonderful afternoon with beloved friends, and to pick up great food that my private chef there made for me. While she was cooking I went off to enjoy the expansive beaches in the area.
Driving up to Al Weeks Park I found the right balance of wide beach and not too many people around making it perfect for me to do a FaceBook livestream from my DJI Phantom 4 drone. That is why you see me speaking in the video,See it at http://facebook.com/IMRAN.TV . You can see how windy it was, and the drone did a very good job of keeping level in flight. But as I was turning it 360 degrees 400 feet up in the air, you can see some parts where the wind tilts it enough to show the horizon tilt briefly.
This is the actual 4K video, about 30 minutes cut to under 15. I was looking for a piece of music to fit that length and that choice can be somewhat limited. I found this opera in my collection and did a reinterpreted version of it.
I did not have time to do a detail edit to set all the motion to just the right movement of music, especially because rendering a 4K video takes so long, and then uploading it and having YouTube fail to process it twice added to the delay. Third time is the charm.
I hope you will love the stunning scene and the aerial view as you feel yourself at the beach and above it!
What do you think of the view?

#Drone Landing At Breathtaking Dusk #TampaBay #Boating #Flying #Travel #Florida #SOOC #3D #SBS #music #video -- https://youtu.be/Q_kxqHNpIz4
Not only was I blessed to experience this mind blowing ZERO color editing or processing or tweaknig or ANY kind. This is a quarter of the original 4K SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera) video from the DJI drone camera. As I was bringing the drone in for a landing after a fabulous sunset and dusk I felt the dusk colors would make an awesome backdrop to make use of the closely spaced objects and strictures on my dock at home in Florida to make it a fun 3D video. I will also upload this somewhere on one of my sites in full size for people to be able to view in full resolution on their 3D smart TVs with active shutters than with anaglyh which kills sunset colors.

Butterflies Are Free! - IMRAN™
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.

PS Absolutely ƒ-\/©-|{!-N-G stupid FaceBook system deleted this video with a false claim that it contained someone else's copyrighted material? Really someone else owns my home and butterfly bush? And the stupid music in the video is actually one of the free BUILT-IN themes for use free in Apple's own FREE iMovie app for iOS. Goddamn stupid policing of wrong stuff while anyone can take your photos and create fake profiles without anything being done by these morons to verify your profile so victims of the fake profiles at least know it was not you. Way to go Mark Zuckerberg, turning a jolly light afternoon into one of extreme irritation. FU. Frankly, Underwhelmed by the 'intelligence' of FaceBook engineers.

18000' Skydiving Birthday Jump #2 3D - IMRAN™

While there can be that sense of fate and foreboding that makes one wonder about doing something crazy like another skydive right on one's birthday, the actual statistical risks are obviously the same as any other day.

But then, fate is always the hunter, and destiny always the elusive and submissive mistress, begging to be tamed by a wild raging heart filled with passion and zest for life.

The song selections for this music video reflect that. Enjoy the music and video in 3D on your 3D enabled TV or laptop or with anaglyph (red/cyan) glasses.

Keep me in your prayers, my beloved friends.

Tampa Bay Sunset Before Tropical Storm Colin - IMRAN™

The gentle pastels of early sunset giving way to the vivid brilliance of dusk on Tampa Bay, Florida, seen from my home in Apollo Beach, the day before Tropical Storm Colin lashed the area.

I love that this is 24 hours so even when I fly in from NY late at night I can go straight there and pick up milk (only to realize I have frozen containers at home already :) ), cereal, vitamins, even Campbell's Chili, and sundry items from batteries to cables to WD40. Always very helpful staff.

Clean, mostly well stocked and mostly very helpful staff. Wish it was 24 hours like a few others. Sometimes their specials are truly great prices. Other times the convenience factor makes up for the prices.

My then girlfriend got me a Groupon for this place. By the time I actually got to use the Groupon (because of poor responsiveness) she and I had actually split up, got back together, and split up again! When I finally did get a massage the young lady Kayla who did my massage was so awesome I became a regular because of her. Then she left. I did not make it to my Apollo Beach place for a month and in my early January trip I found the place had closed down. O, Kayla, Kayla, wherefore art thou, Kayla? :-) Imran

I gave this place two tries over a one year period with two separate lovely lady friends. And both times I was underwhelmed by the service, disappointed by the quality, annoyed by the relatively high prices for mediocre sushi and swore never to come back. I am now sticking to that decision. Imran
