father forgive them
they know not what thy do
out of dust
you created blood flesh sinew
you gave them love
they chose hate
instead of love for you
they placed evil
on a pedestal
they worship
his gilded statue
i am the life and the resurrection
is a not a part of their menu
man has changed drastically
mutated as a file
you cant UNDO

Wake Up Facebook Dudes

Wake Up Facebook Dudes, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. Facebook should place a spaceball on our pictures like Flickr does so nobody downloads them some of us are possessive about are pictures and our girl friends too..

One of the reasons I have blocked 59 albums posted at Facebook from everybody's view..merely saying our pictures are copyrighted does not help, that is why many photographer friends from Flickr joined me here ran away from Facebook never to come back unless Facebook dudes bring in necessary safeguard our material.. we should have the option on who can download our pictures hijra pictures i took pains to shoot are all over the cyberspace without a courtesy link or link back to source.

Nicole The Best Actress I Have Seen, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. This little girl in red and pink, Nicole stole my heart with her true to life performance at the passion play on Good Friday, she is a natural born actress , I could not stop shooting her, her gestures her pain transported me to Jerusalem..

She made me relive each moment I shot, later she was very tired , and I spoke to her this is my humble tribute to the little kids on the Lenten walk, their walk became my walk, and their pain became my pain.

For those of you who have tuned in late I shot this event from 9.30 am till 4.30 pm barefeet , though there was some respite sitting on the event truck, I was shooting every station , and my feet are badly burnt..I thought I would go to work after I came back from this event but I could not move a bit.

And I would do it again only to share this moment, kids encouraged me on the way, this was what kept me going , at Vakola market a few ladies washed my feet wi…
