he bought my breakfast an omelette paratha hot and warm gave me rs 500 placing it in my palm ..a beggar poet i took his alms he said bawa please pray for me my beloved tears in his eyes moist and calm but hearing the ringtone on my black berry he sped away ashamed alarmed i held his money gave it to another beggar asking him to pray for lovers star spangled braving storms he looked towards khwajahs dome offered salaams it is hope humanity that is islam your turn too will come just be calm
And all because people have blatantly stolen my hijra pictures here on Flickr posted them as their own without my permission..
So you wont ever see my new lot pictures of Naina Raveena and others .. I shot hijras at Ajmer last year too but only I can see them..I shot hijras at Maha Kumbh bathing in the Ganges I shot hijras in trains I shot hijras at Haji Malang but none of these will ever be shown to public..
And people who stole my hijra pictures can go fuck themselves dry.. no hijra pictures from my end.
life is gamble you take it or leave it a tumblr full of luck over brimming with billion bucks hands free emotions cosmic fate all stuck some flowers have fragrance some flowers have thorns some flowers you dont pluck some flowers bloom in muck some flowers crushed under trucks i died before i could bloom call it my destiny or pure bad luck
Shooting Him Was Shooting God And Godliness, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. I shot him about three years back .. three frames as my feet were burning , I shoot barefeet , than the next few trips I never found him , this was yet another accidental mystical meeting,,, shooting beggars in Ajmer is very tough , the moving crowds both ways dont allow you to sit squat and shoot, they are in a massive hurry and this is the main Dargah road , so I shoot without manipulation or mind I simply shoot as many frames but all single frames ..
I paid him too generously , but will that change his life, those that give him a few coins too wont change his life.. those who get richer at Ajmer wont give him prosthetic arms ..I dont know his name , where he comes from , I shoot beggars mostly Muslim beggars ..
And his innocence hits me hard , he is not coarse rough , he comes from good poor parentage , and he keeps them happy earning for their livelihood.
beggars cant be choosers a thought comes to mind gradually changing the flickr interface people would not mind kicking the butt of flickr pro members was being totally unkind flickr is flickr because of efforts of pro members a thought to remind please bring back the old flickr as the new flickr sucks wake up please dont be blind
all over cyberspace you have caused a great stink new flickr sucks from asshole to eternity is what i think a great masterpiece blotched up ink old flickr timeless effort of all pro flickr members gone down the sink you blew it this time .. did you by chance have far too many drinks a billion bucks for a rotten tumblr a deal all jinxed
all pro members
feel their pain
its all about
a billion dollars
to buy a tumblr
of useless grain
instead if flickr
allowed us to sell our
they could put
Getty all stock
a better bargain
but than the think
tanks at Yahoo
wont screw tumblr
but have screwed
us Flickr pro members
badly bruised and caned
good old flickr flushed
out forever .. you guys
have lost it gone insane
dedicated to a brother poet posey
they simply should let you and I and all the others sell our images if we choose, they take a small % and that would be that, they could put Getty and all the others out of business , but they have not a clue.. posey
