In addition to my #NaBloPoMo project – trying to post every day for the month of November – I also had another project on the go.
I called it #WhatISaw and I posted iPhone photos on my Instragram account. It was a very interesting, sometimes difficult exercise. Where to shoot, what to shoot, and will it be interesting enough??
As it turns out, I had more then enough interesting photos to shoot, in my own neighbourhood, and anywhere in Vancouver I happened to be.
It’s done something else, though.
I think #WhatISaw really has driven home the point that a legally blind person like me can give the rest of you a real, tangible idea of how we see our world. I’ve shot whatever I felt like, and sometimes it’s been fairly ordinary, sometimes beautiful, sometimes funny. But it’s been straight through my eyes, um, eye.
I’ve enjoyed it so much I plan to keep going. But I think I may change it up. #WhatISaw could be #WhatIAte, or #WhoIMet on some days. But the main thing is that you’ll continue to see me!
And within a few days, they’ll all be linked to my Flickr page as well.
And if you have any ideas on what you’d like me to discover, please let me know. I’d love your input!
And now, I’d better plug my iPhone in. Who knows what awaits me tomorrow?
Thanks for your support. It’s greatly appreciated.
