FOWC with Fandango: Delirious

Image 19.08.15 at 19.24

Delirious is a bit of a strong word for me, but I do like to take photos of anything and anywhere. There are no holds barred. In the distant days when I could walk unaided, I would have the camera hanging somewhere on my body. As time progressed I had a walking stick in one hand but the camera was still hanging crosswise on my body. Then it got a little difficult if I took a photo.

I would have to hang the stick on a bush and balance with the camera. I developed a one handed holding position and it more or less worked. I only fell once, no-one could pick me up and so they had to call a taxi to take me to the hospital for a check. That was the trigger to many examinations with the results that I had MS.

Anyhow to continue, I did continue. now an electric wheelchair replaced the stick for longer walks – with the camera, but it was no longer a walk. It was ideal. I could pack the heavy camera with lens in a bag and place it in the wheelchair. I was now the travelling photographer.

If the weather is good, I am on my way. Today I was wheeling around with the camera. Another 70 photos. That is not  being delirious, that is a hobby- Nothing more boring than going for walks, or now wheelies, without a camera.

  1. I find that I don’t even have to use the camera for it to improve my walk: I am more aware. Especially of the light and small details that I miss when I am not half looking for something to photograph.
