SWEET SWEET MAN SHE IS


Your birthday took me out my gloom today Sweet gorgeous BOO !
HAPPY BIRTHDAYEEE
Be a good girl
Keep smiling
not just today but always
No worries she always smiles
she smiles to the bricks and she smiles to rocks
she smiles to the goats she smiles to the cats.
This man is sweeet, This man is gorgeous
but today this man is very far away
all my love Sweetie

Lovely tribiutes, Rauf!!!

Rauf said...

Absolutely delightful and heart warming presence Don. Her head is full of stuff, mostly useless. I wish her all the joy in the world

rauf.. that is so sweet. You beat me to it. I was planning to do this, but you did it for me :) Good one. Thanks!

Imemine said...

I'm not sure what she is. Anyway, happy birthday!

Rauf said...

Woke her up this morning Aamir, as usual woke up late. Spoke to her for long with the calling card she bought installed on my system before she left. She was sleepy and said I was the first one to call her. We did not fight.

Rauf said...

She's an angel Imemine. thanks for the wishes.
As Holden Caulfield says she's a mad man sometimes.

Hayden said...

wonderful, rauf, and a charming photo.

Rauf said...

Charming man she is Hayden

Frida said...

I will raise a glass in birthday toasts to her today!

Rauf said...

Thank you Frida, She's in England with her husband, drinking orange juice, enjoying the day spreading her charm. bringing joy to other people's lives. she is a vegetarian and a health freak Frida.

Frida said...

Alright, I'm huddled close Uncle Rauf, tell me a story... Who is she? Is she the one that got away? You're best friend from childhood? The little sister you always wanted?

Rauf said...

Oweee ! She's a kiddo Frida, sweet friend of mine, brought immense joy in my life, acts like my mother, she's 25 today, recently married, her wedding pictures are in January archive. please check.

Rauf said...

oh yes Frida, she's my guinea pig, I used to try lots of portrait lighting experiments on her. I needed a gorgeous face to work on.
and our man is simply gorgeous.

Claudia said...

It's wonderful to have such friendships.
You never did answer my question, Rauf: http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=17856918&postID=115083988193473685

Rauf said...

Early in the morning I am dumbstruck Claudia. I am smiling and smiling and smiling. Arshi Will kick me if she comes to know of this, she knows that I am almost as blind a bat. I am always under her constant shower of criticism, she is my mother. I can't see a wall sometimes. I sincerely apologise for having missed your question and a bigger crime I missed your birthday. Now I don't even remember in which post I have written that some one very close to my heart is leaving for England.
You have such a photographic memory Claudia, Arshi is very bright and intelligent too and her memory is exceptional, she keeps taking digs at my absentmindedness. Keeps firing instructions like a mother while I am traveling.
Yes its wonderful to have such friends. That is my wealth, though my pockets are always empty.

Rauf said...

Claudia, please take a look at Arshi's wedding pictures

Claudia said...

I did, back in January, Rauf, and I was really touched by them and by what you wrote about Arshi in the beginning of the year. I imagine she is also Lord Boo...

Claudia said...

And, Rauf, you DID wish me a happy birthday!

Rauf said...

I am relieved. A huge sigh of relief. You may not know Claudia you are my teacher. When I started blogging, seems like century ago, I did not know what to write and knew nothing about the format. I used to learn a great deal from your blog.
Though I do not have the computer knowledge to incorporate all the goodies you have added. The mill stone was the first favourite I had added. And you do not know how far your music and radio links have reached. most of my friends are listening to them now.
thank you so much and I thank you on behalf of my friends.

Yes on the dot, absolutely right, Arshi is Lord boo. You amaze me again Claudia. Told you she's a crazy man.

Gangadhar said...

Fantastic pics,Rauf..Especially loved the second one!! How did you do that? is it a painting or what?
Btw A very Happy Birthday to her..

Rajesh Dangi said...

nice one...

Rauf said...

thanks Rajesh Dengi but nice one what ?

Rauf said...

Thanks Gangadhar, I'll convey your greetings to Lord Boo

No its not a painting, its mostly system work. Veil is a seperate layer. I give brush strokes then I erase some portion say 25% pressure, make it look semi transparent by increasing layer transparency. I keep doing it and some times I don't know where to stop.
Boo has been very patient with me. she helped me with the transition to digital. My first digital portraits were very harsh even with soft lighting.
I kept trying and trying until I got soft tones. softer shadows. sweet Boo was always there for me.

Lord Boo said...

You are such an idiot, Poms ! you made my eyes well up.. you always do that, with your love.. Thanks a zillion for the lovely birthday wishes - made my week; but i'm grinning like an idiot now. How i wish i could be there with you, like the last 2 birthdays *sigh* but we are always together in heart and soul :) *hugs and kisses*

( EEEEEEEEEE!! i'm famous, tee hee hee!!)

ari4u said...

its okay boo.. Sorry to burst your happy bubble, but the 7th cloud cannot hold you for long. So come down :p lol
love and hugs to you and K

Rauf said...

Just shut up boo !

Rauf said...
