Sometimes it's so hard to comment on your posts because they always leave a lump in my throat -Rodney Longoria
Sometimes it's so hard to comment on your posts because they always leave a lump in my throat -Rodney Longoria, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
Thank you Rodney I ease my inner pain deliberately hitting the trigger shooting nothingness I shoot what I shoot I hardly know I shoot a part of me living a part of me dead.
I have nothing to sell and yet people steal from beggars too, people who cant shoot their own pictures rob me of what I have shot, and I dont mind but when they rob my pictures and give fake identities to the subjects in my picture to cheat to connive to rob than the pain hits me hard.
If you are the subject I have shot and you have faked the idenity of my subject than along with the pictures one stole they should have other pictures shot by themselves .. and this is the curse of posting hijra pictures on Flickr.com.
So now just because of a few thieves I refuse to share my world of Hijras with strangers outsiders and the public they lost that privilege.
Sorry I digress I am much happier at Google+ than I ever was at Facbook , perhaps because being a Byronic bore I kept falling in love with silhouettes I had to fall in love , get kicked because all that accidentally made me a poet.
I shoot rubbish I write rubbish all with a magic wand of a single finger I cut my right hand doing a ritual with a sword.. during Moharam..
Anyway I have to rush to work you take care ..
Humble Appeal to Those Who Have Stolen My Hijra Pictures Please Remove It From Your Site At Flickr.com

Visits on my Flickr stream when I had my hijra pictures sets poems collections on public view was about 20000 .. average always above 17000 every day since 5 years or more.
I have posted till date 233,281 blogs / 1,959,415 views
But ever since I decided to remove my hijra blogs from Flickr my average came down to 7000 visits on my photo stream..
And I happy as my other blogs on culture rituals is being seen by default,
Another lady has also put all my pictures of Raveena hijra as her own it does not bother me but she has taken over the identity of a good hijra friend thereby cheating Flickr members using my pictures to entice youth and this is the danger of fake profile at Flickr that Flickr mamagement does not take seriously , this will have serious repercussions one day..
I am not going to cry over spilt milk I refuse to kowtow before Flickr customer care the most insensitive , heartless least caring and I say this without malice I am a Pro member I abide by Flickr Terms conditions so why are my pictures being stolen, why is Flickr not doing something about the faulty spaceball tool that instead of preventing downloads allows everyone to take our pictures and post it as their own on their photo streams..
The person who has stolen my pictures is using the identity of my hijra friend to misguide people on Flickr I have threatened her with reporting her criminal intent to the cyber police if she does not remove my pictures from her photostream..
And Yahoo Copyright is laid back lazy good for nothing entity instead of helping us they throw aspersions on us ...they start with the premise perhaps we have stolen our own pictures .. and I am unhappy with this sad turn of events. I am the aggrieved party .. and I am not getting HELP from Flickr.
