Are You Thankful For What You Have?

[ad#Google Adsense]I am always thankful for what I have and what is coming my way. But there are couple of things which I really wanted to do while me blog and there is some thing which stops me from doing it. I am visually impaired that means in simple language I cannot see. I am not totally blind; there is some amount of vision left out which helps to see the world and its beauty up to some extent. The beautiful flowers, birds and colors of the world ask me to watch them as I walk, talk, think etc. I try to see as much as I can and I think what is that I am missing in my life and all the forces of nature reply answer in you have everything in life and if you fall short of anything we will provide you.

I understood one thing in my life “never take any thing for granted” and this applies to any thing and everything. We walk, talk, and see, laugh, cry, feel etc and we don’t appreciate those which are helping us to do all those activities. On the other hand if we have any problem we start focusing on it and pray to God, please get rid of this pain, I will do this or I will do that. Hmmmmmmmmm what innocence I think, this is the reality of life. As humans we are not don’t appreciate, honor, respect etc for what we have and start hunting, praying for those which don’t have.

For example I will take my self I cannot see but that do not stop me from walking, talking, hearing, thinking etc, I am able to do all those activities like others but I might do them in a different way. I walk using a stick; I read books which are in audio or in any other digital format. I always thank the nature for giving me the strength to do all the activities and I knew the reason why the nature is asking me to wait for those what I need.

I always wanted my blog posts to be filled with nice photos; I love photography, making videos, traveling etc. But I have a limitation as of now and I am not able to do couple of things like adding photos, graphics to my blog posts. I love doing it, but I think it may take some time until I figure out a solution for this problem.

If you have some solutions please put them in the comments section.

  1. Hey, come on, there are thousands of us blind and visually impaired photographers. You might have to use different approaches to get the shots, but I’m sure you can capture some of the world’s beauty as you want to.

    I’m only a beginner at this, but for what it’s worth, I’ll give you some hints. Don’t take photos with your eyes alone. Listen, feel where the sun is, note any movement you can see, and don’t be afraid to take some shots even if you don’t quite know what is in front of you. Sometimes something might appeal to your senses and you’ll know it’s that moment to take a shot.

    Viewfinders are confusing. You might find it better to ignore them. Perch the camera on your forefhead instead, which will help you get it straight if nothing else.

    Just walk around with any camera you feel comfortable with. I just use simple disposable film cameras at the moment, and although they’re not good for everything, I’ve been very satisfied with most of my results.

    See my YouTube channel and judge for yourself.. You may or my not like what I’ve done, but it might show you some possibilities.

    And for some useful discussion by many photographers who don’t see very well, try the Blind Photographers’ Site.

    To answer your blog post directly, yes I’m grateful for what I have. Getting into photography has given me a new respect for my senses, and has made me appreciate the world around me in much finer detail than I did before I lost most of my sight. In a strange way, it’s been a liberation!

    Hope this is some help. Very good luck!


    1. Hey mate thanks for the resources and hints. it was great to find some resources from a person who is already doing it. i will try as you suggested and yes you are true use other senses to take best shot of the photo.
