Why I Hate Posting Pictures At Facebook..

Why I Hate Posting Pictures At Facebook.., a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. My bakra eid picture was reported for Graphic Violence ..and I posted it among Friends ,, the person that has issues with my blood related pictures Bakra Eid or Moharam should remove himself from my friends list ,,, I have no issue and as a photo journalist blogger I dont post or shoot porn.. or promote hate or intentionally or unintentionally try to hurt anyone . I follow Facebook guidelines ,,,that is why I hate posting pictures at Facebook ,, it does not have the fine tuning controls like Google

I also honestly hate adding people I dont know ..whether from my community or mutual friend it is not necessary you like what I shoot ,,,
I type with one finger so I have removed most of the people from my News Feed barring a few very old Flickr friends and those I know personally ,,

It was because of all this I deactivated my Facebook account twice ,,,guys here some of them are bigoted , narrow min…

She Will Be Waiting There After The Namaz On Bakra Eid

She Will Be Waiting There After The Namaz On Bakra Eid, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. her life
bound
to enslaved
moments
called
eternity
held captive
till death sets
her free from
ignominy
rehabilitation
is not part
of the decree
expensive goats
cattle dumbas
will be slaughtered
a feast now turned
to pomp show
big money,..
ostentatious
display
for all to
see ..
no sorry
no bakras
for the orphanage
widows home
only the left over
skin given
generously
i shoot today
another eid
that others
will shoot
eventually


she waits
in a corner
hopelessly
year after
year under
the same
tree..

Man Woman And God

Man Woman And God, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. we have come a long way through thick and thin..when god created man - he created his first sin..when he accidentally created woman he sent us all on a spin..now god is glum the devil grins ..

poetry of life
poetry of death
on a scale like
twins ..you always
lose even when
you win,, beauty
is nothing a layer
of illusions feasting
on the skin..my last
breathe fuck death
as i turn in

dedicated to fred and roland

My Friend Mohamed Bhais Flowerhorns

My Friend Mohamed Bhais Flowerhorns, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. These are pictures I shot of a Flowerhorn at my friend Mohammed Sajjad Aquarium shop at Kurla East,, he has one of the best collection and all his stuff is hand picked by him from Bangkok,,he has the best range of flowerhorns for the beginner and the professional hobbyist..

Mohammed Bhai is a very straight forward person , I have not been lucky with flowerhorns , somehow they dont survive in my tank .. though I am making another last attempt ..I bought a short body and a baby flowerhorn ..I washed my tank with potassium put hypo and kitchen salt.. in a partitioned tank ,,

I am doing this for Marziya my 6 year old grand daughter and Nerjis and Zinnia my other grand daughter both 2 years both love fish.. Nerjis can spot name black ghosts , suckers , ottocinclus and other fishes ..

Marziya has 2 cages of Java finches all colrs..

Welcome To Kurla East

Welcome To Kurla East, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. beggars
living a life
preconceived
before they
came accidentally
to this planet
they were deceived
totally peeved
misplaced hopes
fate bereaved
waiting anxiously
in the departure
lounge of life
from this transitory
state of inertia
to immediately
leave ...a poetic
pain of elusive
happiness
i believe
dreams
unfulfilled
unacheived

i took
an oath
i shall
only
follow
a religion
of peace
humanity
wear black
clothes .
bigots
i loathe
i stay away
from controversy
diatribe that wont
ever add to my
inner growth

my god
does not
live in
palaces
please note
he lives among
the persecuted
oppressed homeless
beggars with whom
he emotes ..my god
god of the poor
his life devotes
my metaphoric
assumption poetic
personal both
it is this god of
the people for
the people by
the people i
wholeheartedly
promote
