I Thought I Would Never Post Her Pictures But I Succumb To Her Charm

Nerjis Asif Shakir is my camera loving grand daughter , she turned 8 month recently and the day my wife told me she had a serous health related problem , my world crashed becuse we both are Malangs , mystics or whatever you understand by this term.. we relate to each other through the poetry of Life .

I disabled public views of her pictures here at Flickr and other places on the net.

Nerjs Asif Shakir I baptized as the Google+ kid as she was launched on Google+ the very second she was born and her picture clicked and sent to me by my eldest son..father of the youngest street photographer Marziya Shakir too.

Its been about a few weeks that Nerjis Asif Shakir fought and almost overcame her illness , but is weak and vulnerable .. we all at home are careful dont touch he without washing our hands..

We give her space and she is the only crawler in our house , mind you I have another pretty grand daughter Zaira Saif Shakir .. the prettiest in our Shakir family.. daughter of my second son.

Nerjis Asif Shaki waits for me to come from work..lunch time is limited and when I see her she is asleep so late in the evening I play with her , take her down and she wont begin her session without drooling all over the Canon EOS 7D.

She knows the camera , and I assist her press her fingers on the trigger and so the camera will never be an alien entity to her childs consciousness.

Marziya Shakir too began her tryst with the camera as a toddler began shooting pictures since she was 2 year old.

My only daughter my son in law , my wife my sons and daughter in laws are all adept with the camera ..

And I am learning photography for the first time teaching this 8 month old child who will one day be my Photo Guru.. the master of my photography and destiny too..

And I dedicate this post to my Google+ friend Jack C Crawford ..
