Slum Dog MillionaireI had, on earlier occasions, noticed this growing slum in passing, but never really put much thought to it. Perchance, it was a cancelled meeting at a factory very nearby and the fact that I was carrying my Camera Kit that gave me the opportunity and the temptation to explore. I parked the car .. and roamed about the putrid, muddy, (I wouldnt even call it a) shanty town. The so called houses are just mud and stones slapped together.Slum Dog Millionaire1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This place is mostly inhabited by Pukhtoons who fled their homes and farms and villages, when the Taliban took over. They are mainly from what is now called KPK Province and the Swat Valley. They have been here for over a decade in squalor and poverty .. but with the pride of the Pukhtoons ..trying to eke out a honest existence. They used to farmers, land owners, merchants who lived a respectful and decent life. They don't get aid from the government because they don't fall into the IDP (Internally Displaced Person
Astrophotography- Some Of Your Questions AnsweredI have got to a point on this site that I am literally being inundated with questions about how I do some of my photos. I simply do not have time to answer them all in full individually anymore. It is seriously restricting the free time that I have to pursue this hobby and take those pictures that have become so popular (both on here and elsewhere). So for my well being and hopefully to the benefit of those who ask me so many questions, I am doing this write up.Astrophotography- Some Of Your Questions Answered2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I get into some questions though, I want to make a few things clear. I have spent a lot of time and money on trying to learn as much as I can to better myself with this style of photography. I love all forms of astrophotography and I really think I have found my niche. I hope to one day soon start making back a bit of that money I have spent. So I am not going to just reveal everything I have worked so hard to learn. What I am going t

Electronic microscope.If you have checked my gallery or follow my work you know that I do some of my pictures with an electronic microscope.Electronic microscope.2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I have received many questions about this equipment, so I think it would be nice to write a little article about this kind of equipment.
A scanning electron microscope (SEM) is NOT a microscope with a bunch of electronic equipment around it to make better pictures.
It's a specific type of microscope using and electron beam to create pictures instead of light.
Other types of electronic microscope exist, but I don't want to enter in these kind of details because I never use them.
This photography is a good example of the type of equipment I use everyday.
Why using an electron beam instead of light ?
Several reason :
- you can reach higher magnification up to 150000x compare to 2000x with light
- you have a far better depth of field
- you can make some material

Life is definitely not fair for anyone of us , animals included . What can we do about it ? Are we going to blame god , blame life , blame karma etc ? To me personally , this is as good as giving in the problems and killing yourself slowly from deep within . Its not really a topic that many people would like to bring up but let me just say this from my own point of view , we are who we are and our life belongs to us . Happiness is not somethi

Being HumbleDear, deviantart fellow artists,Being Humble8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Have you ever felt .. not good enough?
That anxious feeling that is always there. No matter how hard you try, there are those thoughts of - "I'll never be as good as that particular artist" or "I'll never reach that skill level" or "nobody likes me and why am I even trying" etc.
BUT you know what - that feeling of humble never really goes away. And you have to deal with it. Now and for the rest of your life.
Everyone starts from somewhere and to develop your skills and learn more - you have to do the hard work of studying and becoming better at what you love to do every single day. There is no other way. ( & we become by doing)
And don't just sit there and feel sorry about yourself - it won't solve the problems. Inner doubts can affect your productivity and willingness to do anything - leading to being disappointed, but not able to do anything about the situation. Don't wait for things t

Rocks and RocketsFrom the first time someone picked up a rock and threw it with anger at someone else we entered a new phase of warfare.

We are competitive animals .Unfortunately this leads to conflict ,especially over resources.Life in the past was '' nasty , brutish and short '', as Thomas Hobbes the English philosopher was quite right in pointing out .I once did a unit in military history at Sydney University and even though it seems eons ago (I think I may have lived past the 'short ' part of Hobbes' phrase !) I remember that the big changes in warfare came from the introduction of the longbow,and of course later the use of gunpowder.This of course changed the way we fight.I understand that this is a very simplistic assertion and it is a very complicated combination of different factors a
Skulls vs SkinI have been thinking lately about why I like skulls.Human skulls. Amongst the countless things that fascinate me, skulls, I admit I love.Before anyone notifies the Federal Police I am not Ed Gein and do not have any real ones in the house .Except for the one I am using right now that I believe is holding that little pink peanut called my brain.Skulls vs Skin11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Skulls are representative of death and it is true. I, like many others have a fascination for death and many things that revolve around it , but then there are countless professions that do :from pathologists to newsreaders.
I think I like skulls because they are primarily representative of the ' BARE BONES'.
They are the physical essence of something.They are the bottom line of our features and our facial representation to the world.My little collection of ceramic , wax, resin, cement . plastic, metal etc. skulls are just ersatz artistic expressions of this and this is why I like them.I do however sometimes have to explain to people that

Devious Journal EntryPerhaps its best to write what I have already, what I know is concrete in my mind rather than start with a rudimentary introduction.Devious Journal Entry4 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is my own little number, God Made Man but Man Made Sin:
You ridicule me, judge me and hate me
Tellin' me my God was the one who created this catastrophy.
But who's really responsible for it all?
Is it your god or my god or something more after all?
Why are children cryin' and people dyin'?
Does God turn his head or shake a fist,
is He even there at all?
Did He know it would happen,
All this pain, all this war and all this hate?
Know this my friend, I can't give you the answers;
I'm not a fortune teller, He's not an open book.
Bt this I know, this I know:
God made man, but man made sin.
Maybe that's why all this is happenin'.
Why oh why Eve did you need to bite
Into that juicy fruit of forbidden desire?
Like Pandora's Box, you lit this perfect world on fire.
Sin ensued and not soon after
Came the titans of lust, greed, malevolence and massed fire.

Happy Birthday U.S. Federal Reserve100 years ago today the Federal Reserve act was passed in haste by a Congress eager to recess for the holidays.Happy Birthday U.S. Federal Reserve11 months ago in Personal More Like This
It was designed 3 years earlier by the global banking elite during a meeting with their proxies in Congress on Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia. Morgan (Backed by Rothschild wealth) and Rockefeller had already effectively monopolized the monetary trust. The Federal Reserve Act was the final elegant con game designed to perpetually indenture the American government and its people in the world's most beautifully crafted ponzi-scheme. Some facts.
1. The Federal Reserve, the 'Federal' U.S. central bank which prints and insures the U.S. dollar, is a private bank. A Federal court has ruled that it is a privately owned, privately monitored banking consolidation apparatus. It is a for-profit corporation owned by the legacy banking kingpins.
2. By taking the U.S. off of a commodity backed currency standard, the private Federal Reserve bank could then print currency at will; desc

She would gladly give them water, see to their crops and have their kids play wile she watched over them. She was quite proud that no one ever drowned because of her. But, people found other interests in time, bigger houses, more fertile lands, warmer climates, bigger cars, easier commutes where just a few of the reasons she heard as they left.Deli1 year ago in Personal More Like This
She was so easy to talk to, all you needed to do was sit on her bank at night and listening to the wind and water running. Soon the noise would turn to a hum, then clear as day you could hear a women singing. A beautiful song, unlike those of people. This song I heard, it was beautiful, but sad. I was trying very hard not to cry, even do I had no reason to be
