Almost there! Since going blind last November, and surgery and an awful lot of time recovering, things are almost back to normal.
I’ve one last challenge to try on my progressive path towards my new extant reality: To make a video.
The problem isn’t just my restrictions on using a computer these days. The problem has been that since last November my “mind’s eye” has changed along with my literal vision. Though I see things every so perceptibly differently now, I’m also “seeing” them differently too.
That challenge also, to capture a moment that in itself is rather difficult to capture – at dusk, with the light fading, and a cacophony of screeching tawny owls amidst the noise of passing road traffic and aeroplanes.
So, this is short, but a perfect reflection of the moment. Now I know I can do the basic process with the camera and computer, it’s time to do something a little more ambitious.
