Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist

a liquid level indicator attached to the side of a blue cup filled up with tea

I really struggled with this weeks Photo Challenge, so i thought i’d use a minimalist photo of this little gadget that completely transformed my life shortly after losing my sight. I couldn’t even make myself a warm drink without burning myself several times! So instead i just drank Vodka as it was much easier, but this really didn’t help my dark depression (see my testimony).

Then my social worker brought me round this liquid level indicator, and it changed everything! I could finally make myself a cup of tea, and was quickly making anyone who came round drinks again, what a feeling! 🙂

Fill your cup with greater confidence, using RNIB’s audible and vibratory Liquid Level Indicator. Simply place it on the side of a cup and a series of audible beeps and vibrations will let you know when the liquid nears the top.

The Liquid Level Indicator will give off an intermittent beep and a series of vibrations when your cup is nearly full, followed by a faster beep and continuous vibration when it has reached its limit. There are also magnets built in, to allow easy storage on your fridge door.

    • Hi Bernice! thanks so much for stopping by and leaving this lovely comment! Yeah i love taking photos and capturing images of the world i can hardly see. My sight is really blurry and i have no central vision at all, everything in the centre or what i look straight towards disappears. Luckily my camera isn’t registered blind so i’m able to use it as a prosthetic eye! lol. And with digital photography i’m able to take lots of shots without worrying about wasting film!
      So blessed to meet you here and thanks for taking time to check out my photos! 🙂

  2. Well, that is a very interesting device! My mom is blind, but I’ve never seen her use anything snazzy like that! Day-to-day life must be awfully cumbersome without central eyesight 😦 God really has gifted you with photography 🙂 It’s the other way around for me, since retinitis pigmentosa has destroyed my peripheral. But thank God for cameras and all the rest of our needs, which He faithfully provides! 🙂 ♥ ❤
