What in the world happened to Riyaz? Part. II

18. There is something that you miss of Tanzania?
Birds! And of course the weather

19. And what about India?
Never been, but I hear it is very picturesque. It is on my list of countries I would love to visit!

20. As you have Indian origins, you are supposed to be an Indian food lover. Any secret you want to confess?
I hate curries everyday, an occasional nice hot curry is good. I am a fish person, and love my grilled Salmon anytime!

21. Could you give us the recipe of this, please? https://www.photoblog.com/riyaz/2008/06/04/dont-count-calories-be-free-and-enjoy.html [photoblog.com]
Recipe? I only know the recipe of how to eat it, which, is "GO FOR IT!!! and enjoy, and forget stuff like Calories, Fat, Etc - I am lucky that my wife is a lovely cook, and she is my walking database for recipes.

22. Do you have any favourite Photoblog user? When we say about the Photoblog user we mean not about the photo quality or if the user is nice or bad, we mean about the creativity of the post, the words he/she uses. If you would like to tell us who…
PB is like a big family to me, and I have met some lovely people and made many friends, so it is difficult to just pick one user. My Friends list is always growing.

23. Since our last interviews were about some nudist lovers, we ask you, would you do nude artistic?
Of course, as long as I can keep my shirt on.

24. You have travelled a lot, has this fact given you a broader view of the world in a photographic sense?
It’s given me different perspectives to photography for sure, and also allowed me to learn about the different cultures.

25. Have you ever been in some place and when you wanted to take a photo you realized that you had forgotten your camera?
I was once invited by an old work colleague, who now works for a Company, whose offices are based on the River Thames, and while we were enjoying a drink at the staff hospitality area, the Siren went, and the next thing we saw was the Tower Bridge open, to let a ship through, and I wish I had captured that moment. I even tried to use the Mobile phone, but the batteries had run out!

26. Who would you like to see interviewed next?
The Pope? Not sure if he has time though, lol. Tere has already been interviewed. LiveloveLaugh and Cariad always come up with great shots and their comments are always very descriptive and entertaining - what can I say, all three - Tere, Livelovelaugh and Cariad share the same profession!

Thanks Riyaz for the time and sense of humor,. And also for allow us to post some of your photos.

Thanks everyone that supports this little project, and be aware… next can be you!!

Still waiting more questions for Mrsbox :) I know she will die after all these questions hehe ;))
I’ll be accepting questions till 20th December, so hurry up.

It makes no sense start reading this without visiting first What in the world happened to Riyaz? Part. I at Ruth's PB. [photoblog.com]

14. You also like B&W and sepia photos. Only for portraits and landscapes or do you try every photo with this kind of editing?
Portraits, landscape and those which I cannot publish on photo blog ;) But yes, I enjoy B&W as well as Sepia, and one of my best B & W Portrait was published in the Jan 2010 Issue of the Photography Month Magazine, as the Editors pick on the readers gallery!

15. Sometimes you play and love to make experiments… https://www.photoblog.com/riyaz/2009/09/20/splash.html [photoblog.com] or https://www.photoblog.com/riyaz/2009/09/17/smoke.html [photoblog.com] … Is it because you don’t have a hobby?
No… I love creativity in photographs and I don’t mind how long it takes, and in most cases the result is worth the effort!

16. What disease did cured ham actually have?
Hamitolitis - I haven’t got my medical dictionary at hand, and the wiki website I am told has been suspended, following Leaks!

17. Some of us know a little more about you and know that your origins are African and Asian… Do you feel comfortable living in a place as cosmopolitan as London?
It is the best place I have ever lived in … no place looks like it or feels like it.

Interesting interview.... hmmmm Never knew that about Tere and livelovelaugh...honoured for the mention Riyaz - but not in the same league as Tere or Livelovelaugh in the photography department

I really enjoyed this entire interview, R&R. Riyaz really is such a master at the night shot. I too am very jealous! Well, I know I'm not the pope...so, I suppose I know the profession I share with Tere and Cariad. :)) That was very sweet, Riyaz. Actually, I'm honored that you think that of me. x :)

I´m jealous, have to admit it, I love his portraits and his night shots but hey wait, Im confused with the last question, he was talking abotu the pope and suddenly he mentions me??? do i have the same profession as the pope? Are Livelovelaugh and Cariad popes too??
Does this all mean I'm not forced to go to work today and I only have to assist to church on Sunday? whohoooooooooooooooooo (hey,,how much does a Pope get as a salary??)
