At my house everyone is a photographer , but though I am the patriarch of photography iin my house the benchmark and standard of our photography, is a white American Brooklyn born Jew , he is our extended family, we had no choice we had to adopt him as he is guru of Marziya Shakir the missing grand daughter in these pictures ,,he blessed , taught Marziya Shakir to encapsulate the world through the eye of the camera....so it is Dr Glenn Losack who is the hidden cause of our love for the camera.. and he loves Nerjis a lot..when Nerjis was seriously ill it was Glenn who kept our hopes alive , he gave us strength , he was certain and sure she would recover.. she has done fighting an illness that had become a bane of our lives.

Who shot these pictures like he was shooting in movie mode..not Marziya not my wife , nor my sons or their wives , nor my daughter , but my son none…

my lifes partner
for 33 years
the woman
i had wed
my poems
she has
never read
romancing
a stone
pursuing
illusions
living and dead
as the ricksha
moved ahead
thoughts
memories
pain pathos
bestrewed
like flowers
on a bed
some faded
some jaded
pink white
yellow and red

my lifes journey would have been incomplete without her

my lifes journey would have been incomplete without her, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. the beggar poets
angst the silhouette
of her hijab a path
a cosmic blur
nothing lasts
forever
beneath the
rippling cascade
of shadows
a poetic metaphor
silence a murmur
nostalgic pond
of memories
a pebble
i throw
thoughts
sinister
my soul
bedraggled
in her hands
my life
i surrender

Gautam Buddha

Gautam Buddha, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. Buddha Says...

"Those who are pure in heart and single in purpose are able to understand the most supreme Way. It is like polishing a mirror, which becomes bright when the dust is removed. Remove your passions, and have no hankering, and the past will be revealed to you"
