Salam. That means peace.|
I am from Pakistan. A Muslim. I try to document life. I take photos and I write. I own a Nikon D3100 since 2011. I have traveled alot in my yesteryears but I haven't been able to much in these past 3 years. Back and forth in those cities that I have known or try to be familiar with. I study; pursuing engineering, graduation by '15. It has been amazing here, on . I have met wonderful people, exchanged ideas and grew as a person, human and artist. Shukariya for being here. And a wave to Makola94

Street Photography: The Capture vs. The PoseStreet Photography
The Capture vs. The Pose
portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

Six Word Story Contest - 7 3 Month Subs to be won!...and the winners are announced here!
A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.
As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
So getting to the point of this article, we are kickstarting this year with a six word story contest! We have some awesome prizes and hopefully enough freedom for you to enjoy yourselves too! Please support the contest and
A Gentle ColdPersonal
So I spent this week depressed. No real reason, just was. Couldn't shake it, kept getting anxiety attacks, and was generally more down than usual, even given my more or less morose personality.
Down enough that Doc all but dragged me out to lunch on Thursday because he was getting concerned. He and his wife took me to Pei Wei and now I have a new Chinese place to enjoy on my long days. His wife asked me to go to Panera Bread with her afterwards and we spent about three hours working there. Very happy about that, because I had been going to a Panera Bread that's way out of my way - I had no clue there was one so close to campus now. Apparently it opened about a week ago.
I still haven't really shaken the feeling, but it's lessened. I made myself get out of the house yesterday, which probably did me some good. I had two coupons for Michael's that expired that day, so I bought some new stamping materials and an autumn-y basket to fill wi
