Weekly Photo Challenge: Liquid

For this “Weekly Photo Challenge” i went for the thing that popped into my head first after reading “Liquid”…..It’s got to be coffee! 😎 

Sarah & i love coffee and we love trying the different tastes especially whilst on holiday! 😎

Weekly Photo Challenge: Experimental

For this weeks photo challenge “Experimental”, i thought i’d go back a year and a half when Sarah & i were being “Experimental” with the iPhone Panorama mode. I thought i’d try and look calm in the start of the shot….Then run around the back of Sarah to wave in the end of the shot! I managed it eventually, lol. 😎  

on the left i'm leaning on a fence overlooking a large pond while on the right i'm waving with both arms in the air and smiling at the camera!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Temporary

The Ancient Olympic Games Original Stone Start Line.

This trip has been such an unexpected blessing, as Sarah had another “Charcot Foot” and was in an air-cast for the last 5 months…..She removed the air-cast a few weeks ago and she’s been strengthening her leg for this cruise.

I chose this photo for this weeks photo challenge: “Temporary” as it was a temporary moment in our lives(thankfully as it was so hot) and a special memory as we didn’t think we’d ever make it as Sarah’s foot was so bad. So seeing Sarah on the start line at the ancient Olympics was fantastic! 😎

Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

A photo of 2 side profile head shots of Geese with the one at the back in focus and the one if front out of focus.

As ii’m registered blind, this weeks photo challenge “Focus” is very interesting as i don’t have any focus and need to use the camera’s autofocus! 

I chose this photo as the lens was going crazy trying to focus on each of the birds, so in the end i pressed the shutter and got this shot! 🤣 

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Anything that Flies

http://steverebus.com/2013/04/25/our-a-balloon-flight/

  A few years ago for Sarah’s birthday present I booked a balloon flight as she has always wanted to go up in one. There were a lot of cancellations last minute due to poor weather but finally one weekend we got to go. The weather as you can see was not very clear, but it was amazing…..And great for “Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Heritage

Sarah  i playing at church

This weeks “Photo Challenge” left me with so many options i didn’t know where to start! 

The photo above is one of Sarah & i’s favourites and is on our side-board. I thought…..”Heritage” – It has the church building which was built way before our time. “Heritage” – The guitar i’m playing(and not worthy of holding, never mind owning) was built by a fantastic Luthier. “Heritage” – And more important than all of this is the Holy Covenant of Marriage that glues Sarah and i together in the power of His promises! 

I could go on & on…..But i’ll stop here and go and check out your posts on the challenge! 🙂 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Danger!

Sorry for being away for so long…..i’ve missed you guys!

For this weeks “Photo Challenge“, i thought i’d look back on our horse ride across the beautiful beach of St John’s Antigua. As both Sarah * i are registered Blind this was a nerve-racking trip for us. It was a brave, DANGER filled trip but we stepped up to the challenge and had one of the best days of our lives! 🤣

Weekly Photo Challenge: Achievement

Here are 6 recent “Achievements” from Sarah & i for this weeks 📷 challenge. 

#1 RNIB’s Outlook magazine cover photo

⇧ The CD version of Outlook Magazine with my cover photo ⇧ 

I’ve had another photo published as a cover photo on RNIB’s Outlook 29 magazine. I havn’t seen the print, large print or Braille covers, but i have the audio version.

#2 Norfolk Hideaways Photography Competition

⇧ Sunset 4 the people ⇧ 

Norfolk Hideaways had a photo competition for their calendar and brochure for 2015. This is the first time i’ve ever entered my photos in a competition. They replied saying the wanted to use my photo (see “Sunset 4 the people” above) for either the front cover of their brochure and calendar! Unfortunatley i didn’t have a high enough quality image (as it was cropped from my iPhone) to use as a cover shot, but they will publish it on their website, leaflets & inside the brochure. That’s still amazing to me, as i was up against fully sighted photographers, so even to consider one of my photos is unbelievible to me!! 🙂  

#3 My Florence, Italy Photographic Exhibition.

Exhibition Countdown from my blogs sidebar

Now this still blows me away…My photography exhibition in Florence, Italy. We fly out in less than 2 weeks for the opening (my first time abroad!) and to say i’m excited is an understatement! I still can’t believe that they chose little old me to exhibit in their museum! I’ll keep you updated and take lots of photos on my travels! 🙂

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! 🙂

Description of a liquid level indicator taken from RNIB online store

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs

Pedestrians Sign

The Challenge “This week, publish an image of a sign — from the signs you encounter on the street to more personal, less obvious signs that hold meaning for you.”

 On a walk in London, alongside the river Thames, Sarah & i stumbled across a surprising Sign inviting us to “Walk on the water”.
