Aha! You thought I was gone. But I’m back. Those of you who have followed my illness know where I’ve been. The rest of you can read about it here. For the last few months I’ve been thinking about what I want to do with my photography. A recent article by Chris Gampat about low vision photography (LVP) inspired me to give it a try.
People often wonder how one can do photography while blind. So first let’s define what what we mean by low vision photography. Low vision isn’t exactly blind. Many of us learned photography while we still had some vision. This is why the phrase low vision is more accurate than blind. Chris learned photography after he had lost much of his vision. I’ve only recently lost significant vision, but I’ve been doing photography all of my adult life.
To illustrate this, here are two images (one above & one below) of the same subjects and scene. The first one, the blurred one, is somehow more compelling than the second, which is technically more correct.
Here are two more images. They are abstract because of the lighting and the exposure. They both have some interesting elements in common, such as strong back lighting, and some that are not, such as motion blur.
These may be the last Nikon=D40 images posted here. We made a little get away trip to Pueblo, Colorado. And I thought I had captured some very interesting images. But no, the camera had malfunction. I tried to reset is but in the end only capture a few useable images. This wall art probably turned out best:
The girl appeared one her own last month as a #WednesdayWindow:
First, let’s clarify the meaning of Casino. It really just means a gathering place, not a pace to gamble. ThenCasino At Santa Catalina Island is a music hall.
There are many interesting windows and doors. These are the two main entrances.
And the Ticket Window between the Main Doors.
And finally, the Back Door with a Tourist Guest:
Dear Blogger Friends, as you read this posting I will be returning from a Vision Evaluation at the Mayo Clinic. Long, long journey. You can catch on some of it Saturday when I post another ‘Through the Glass’ update.
We toured the New Courthouse soon after it opening in 2016. Of course the Thursday Doors gives me an opportunity to share now with my new Blogger Friends.
The Court of Appeals is located in the First Floor Lobby and the first Doors you see upon entry.

And just a really nice hallway:
Our Doors Open Denver Tour was led by then Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court, Nancy Rice, who was involved in the design of the Building. She was a Great Tour Guide because she loved the building!
See more from the Tour Here. Some nice windows too that I will have to post some Wednesday…..
I realized that I had no Door planned for today. OMG! And I had just been sorting doors yesterday. So I’m giving you one of my Indoor Doors. From the Denver Architecture Foundation’s Doors Open Denver, the Evans School:
You know that I like interior spaces. I know that I photographed the main entrance…. when I find it I will post it!
