I document humanity ,, I shoot what others dont like to shoot, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. i shoot beggars gods over ripe fruit , fallen from an overladen tree of sorrow .. they cross my route destitute mangled misery waters of society they pollute shabby disheveled ill repute but strangely to gods glory they contribute some shout cry out some were born blind mute crippled deformed covered with soot they are the essence of my humility my genre poetic pursuit my pictures my pathos my passion my pain a beggar poets only tribute barefoot ...tree without roots
