Good visuals excite me.
The beauty of nature mesmerizes me.
Memories of Pakistan nostalgia-te me.
Position of women worries me.
Chauvinists exasperate me.
Preachers of false dogmas enrage me.
Terrorism sickens me.
Extremists frustrate me.
Moral policing infuriates me.
The lost community baffles me.
Racism saddens me.
Political bastards need to get a life!

This Month's Terrorist Activities

I don't know when peace would fill Pakistan again! The terrorists are having a blast of a time, aren't they! Last month we witnessed the painful humor of these godforsaken people; the anniversary of the 2007 Lal Masjid siege was celebrated with yet another blast aimed at the police, while one civilian died. And how can we forget the horrible images of the burqafied moral police that took over the street of Islamabad back on '07 *cringe*

Anyhow. Pakistan's August has witnessed it's own charade of terror; no month goes empty handed.

1. 4th, Sibi, Baluchistan. Remote controlled bomb attached to a parked motor-bike in a main bazaar.

2. 19th, Dera Ismail Khan, N.W.F.P. Suicide bomb outside a hospital.

3. 21st, Wah, Attock District, Punjab. Twin suicide bombing aimed at the Pakistan Ordnance Factories; 63 dead; 81 injured.

4. 23rd, Swat, N.W.F.P. Suicide bomber; 8 policemen dead; several people injured.

Fruit Photography

I've always wanted to see a real strawberry plant ... to date.
I think strawberry is one of the most beautiful fruits, and a beautiful plant as well (as I can tell from the pictures).

Though, come to think of it ... grapes and pomegranates are rather photogenic competitors *hmmm* ... with pomegranate, it's still what's inside that's good-looking, on the outside, it isn't much. But I think the form, texture, and general visual structure is similar ... and that is what's appealing to the eye :D

Otto Dix

Portrait of Dancer Anita Berber

And I almost forgot this guy. When I first saw his work, and especially this piece ... I had a *beeeeeeeeeeep* ... lol
Anyhow. This was a time when I had a head-over-heals kinda crush on the color red. So this was just pure *beep*. Yeap :D
I actually ended up making a personal calendar for myself out of his paintings. Got some sizeable digital prints done, and photochopping helped me add the dates :D
I wonder where it is though *thinking hard*

Frida Kahlo

Self Portrait Dedicated to Dr. Eloesser

I'm not really a big fan; this style of art does not really tickle my fascination. But there is still something about these self-portrait's of hers that I can relate with. Brown skin to start with. This entire idea of an outward prettiness along with thorns seems quite familiar to my own culture. A woman's story! Why don't they just get a life! Constant embarrassment.

Paula Rego

The Family

She's awesome! One of my favorite most artists. Her style, her interpretation and representation of the masculine-female/feminine is superb. And it's always a visual pleasure.
