Although I have taken photos for a good part of my life. They were mostly snapshots. I did not really get interested in depth, until my macular degeneration caused me to become legally blind. I found that through photography, I am able to see the details I miss at the time of taking the photo. I am lucky to have enough vision left to be able to see the photos on my monitor and to use editing methods to help bring out the beauty.
If you know of anyone that is losing their useful eye sight, I would be more than happy to talk with them to let them know that life is not over, it is just evolving.
