Lathi Ka Sahara Jab Ata Hai Budapa Hamara, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.

apne paraye
sab kar lete

maut bhi

jati hai

once upon a time
nahi ata hai dobara

Snorting Brown Sugar On The Bandra Skywalk

Snorting Brown Sugar On The Bandra Skywalk, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
I entered the skywalk from the Bandra Bus depot end , though more interesting specimens are found from the Bandra Compund end near the Juma Masjid.. I could not take a shot from the front below there is an Adda where most of the drug addicts gardalus sit and smoke .. no fear of the cops at all.. And this is the crux to rape murder acid throwing and other crimes the common criminal knows the law takes it own sweet time so he is defiant and does not fear the police .. I do not wish to bad mouth or demoralize the cops working long hours under political social pressure , but I think they should appoint guardians volunteers in each area , responsible tough people ex army officers and this might bring down crime ,, is all I can think of .. but this area of Bandra is a hub of criminal activities waiting to happen with drug addicts roaming freely they are not scared of the public too .. most carry a…

After A Long Time I Used My Rusty Camera Today ,,,Thanks To Aviary, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.



I have been churning new thoughts new monochrome images at Flickr via Aviary editing tool ,  without using my camera since a few weeks ..

I never tweaked my pictures  I posted what I shot exactly the way I saw it ..I never delete or correct my pictures .. bad pathetic ugly as is where is .. I shoot ugliness beggars homeless urchins even drug addicts ..I have cut down on shooting hijras because I get tired seeing them by myself.. this segment of transgender documentary is  off limit to public and friends even family.

So all these weeks I saw a lot of stuff on the road but could not shoot it as I had stopped carrying my other prosthetic limb called the camera.

But today  I took the camera along  with me and this beggar lady sits adjacent to the Juma Masjid Bandra SV Road .. opposite the road that takes me to a workshop in the slums in the Bandra compound ..she sits the…

Aviary Is Very Unsavory Today

Aviary Is Very Unsavory Today, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. There was a problem connecting to Aviary. We should try this again a little later.


i do my photography
tweaking the soul
of my old images
on aviary ,,but it
does not respond
as i have over used
it overwhelmingly
giving a new look
a new hope to
old thought but
i have not gone
overboard used
it cleverly ,,,adding
a poem as corollary

but if they have
closed shop gone
for a picnic than
i am left miserably

flickr customer
care please
help me
as pictures of
my cheek
piercing wait
haplessly
to bee or
not to bee
oh aviary
