Do You Want To Be A Photographer Or A Storyteller

I started of like most of you as an analogue photographer but strictly hobbyist ,,,and never an iota of a thought about making money or having photography as my second source of income ,, I was happy as a high end tailor or Darzi...

The Facebook Friends List

posted this evening at Facebook

I Love Bandra... Because That Is Where I Stay

as i was turning

as they say
where there is
