Only Flickr Members Can See My Pictures.. I Am Shocked At My Moderation

I have decided I will now shoot less .. does not make sense if I can not cross blog my pictures to Twitter Facebook Pinterest Blogspot ... Indibloggers


THINK FLICKR THINK
A FIROZE WITHOUT LINKS

HE DOES NOT SMOKE
HE DOES NOT FORNICATE
HE DOES NOT DRINK
HE USES A MOUSE
INSTEAD OF PEN AND INK
HE DOES NOT SHOOT PORN
A THOUGHT THAT GOES BLINK

i was her
time pass
that caught
her eye
silence
of a phone call
a swift goodbye
deleted doomed
she left me
on the road
crushed under
cosmic wheels
she let me die
an optical
illusion
neither his
nor mine
a poetic
pause
a cause
divine

moments
of her
laughter
her mirth

has become
invisible
her face

miles
across
the oceans
she lies
from me
no more
part of
my lifes
poetry
deleted
doomed
to be or
not to be
beggar poet
photographer
per se
a power
puff bubble
imaginary

This Is a Typically Mumbai Attitude .. Fuck The World

If anyone understands Mumbai better than anyone else it is eminent columnist Mr Ayaz Memon.. we once met outside my old shop , close to his Bandra house , that time I was taking baby steps from photography to blogging ..

And Mumbai is an enigma I say with pictures as I am not good with words and it is tough I type with one finger cant see without glasses and suffer from diminishing eyesight .. luckily I shoot pictures with my eyes closed I dont compose I dont follow the beaten path of fucked Renascence pompous assholes who fucked the vision and the visionary till Armageddon.

I would still be shooting pictures even if I did not have a camera, I was gifted with the humility of an observant eye and Dickens Balzac Dostoevsky made me a street photographer ..my favorite writer was George Gissing New Gru Street and all the wisdom I got was sitting with frends junkies homos at the archives…

And now I am posting stuff shot in Mumbai and this includes pictures I shot on the streets , in the train and on my reaching Lucknow

I have a huge back log , so I deliberately stopped shooting pictures , and this year I have shot less pictures did not shoot Moharam in Mumbai save 6 Moharam at Kaisar Bagh Dongri, this I shot before leaving for Hyderabad.

In the Shiasm in India set I shot my house majlis Lucknow Chehlum.. I thought of going to Lucknow to shoot Athvi and the Chup Tazia and Eid e Zehra but I have some commitments that I had taken up as an assignment so I wont be able to make it , however hard I try.. I left my Kama dagger in Lucknow.

I had also thought of shooting Athvi in Mehmoodabad which happens later than the Athvi in Lucknow but that too wont happen.

I did not shoot the Urus of Fakruddin Shah Baba no time at all.. I did not take some other work I was …
