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! 🤣
Wow, another “Photo Challenge” where i could post thousands of photos! 🤣
Here’s a few “Evanescent” moments of my(& Sarah’s) travels.
On a severely rocky train journey through “St Kitts”, i managed somehow to take this photo of one of my fave church buildings! ~ Read about our fantastic journey here!
Now a little about this bird…..🤣 Taken from my older post “In Flight”
“This photo brings back memories of patience for me. This is the longest i’d taken getting one shot. I spent 3 days going down to the local lake and sat patiently on a bench taking about 150 shots per day until finally got this one. I learnt that when you can’t see what’s in your viewfinder, don’t take photos of birds! lol” 😀
Sarah had just a few seconds to take this photo whilst doing a 2 day course at the “Institute of Legacy Management” building. She wanted to show me a cityscape of London as she wouldn’t get this chance again! 🙂
And of course i can’t do many photo challenges without a photo(or photos) of “Bruce THE Boxer”. Our lovely Boxer dog which we still miss loads! But i felt this period in time(14th July 2000 – 3rd Dec 2011) felt like it only lasted a short time and would suit this challenge. 🙂
More Weekly Photo ChallengesW
For this weeks challenge(Reflectiong), i used an old photo from our “Tuscany Tour”(please click to begin this fantastic trip), although it’s not really about reflecting……I think Sarah’s smile reflects enough of how much fun we were having on this holiday! 😀
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! 🤣

On a recent visit from Sarah’s Dad & two brothers, i was filled with Admiration as i played guitar along with my brother in law Alfie. I remember when he was first learning and now he’s sic! 🙂
More Weekly Photo Challenges!
For this weeks Photo Challenge Theme: Dance…I couldn’t resist posting this lovely photo of Sarah dancing with a dolphin on our holiday to the Caribbean last year.
For this weeks photo challenge “Vivid“, i decided to use a photo of lovely Ella(my friend Rob’s daughter) with Vivid flowers.
Also i thought the Vivid hairs around “Bruce THE Boxer’s
” mouth would be a great contribution too! 🙂
Sarah “Enveloped” by flowers, for this weeks photo challenge. 🙂

Once i found out this week’s photo challenge was “Blur”, i was going to try and create an image that would replicate my severely blurry sight.
But as i was updating my iMac software and finding out the new features in the “Photos” app, i found this image. It’s of me being taken out with some blisteringly blurry swordsmanship by Vini, using the newly created balloon swords that he had just made from a Christmas cracker & balloon making kit set. 🙂
The “Ephemeral” joy of pure adoration! 🙂
As Sarah & i were walking around Hampton Court Palace gardens, i stopped to take this photo of what i call “The pathway to paradise”. I could feel the warmth of spring while the “Fresh” scent of the flowers ensconced us. 🙂
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.
