I am legally blind since 2000.
In real life I can't see people's faces,
or read headlines smaler than 2 inches tall.
God bless point-and-shoot cameras!
On my computer, I have software that allows me to zoom in and read. I can see faces on my monitor. I leave my nose-print on the screen from squinting to make out the world.
My wife and I have five indoor cats.
We also feed squirrels and birds and an occasional raccoon on our back porch.
I have the greatest sister. She goes by "Cobalt123" herhe in Flickrville. See her photos here: flickr.com/photos/cobalt/ She brought me to Flckr, then gifted me with a PRO account, then she sent me a camera! So you see, this is all her fault :)
I've had a few great cameras. One little Nikon took perfect shots every time for years and years before it finally broke. I had no camera for quite a while. My sister gifted me with an Olympus C960 Zoom for Thanksgiving 2006, which took great shots until it went airborne and landed on concrete. My amazing Flickr friend dbu2 sent me a Kodak EasyShare Z760, so I have moved up to 6 megapixels! dbu2 RULES!!!! I would write him a tesimonial, but he already has a whole flock of them. He's a Prince among Flickrdom!

"John is one of the people i have got to know since joining flickr. He is always generous with his comments, and he adds to the knowledge i have of where I have been by telling me interesting facts about the places. His own photostream is aways a joy to check- and I do so all the time- thanks John for your time and friendship."

"After snickering at me for the first year I was on flickr, guano has come complete around and is not only active, but a Pro account member for the second year. And this is the year he's got his own digital camera to use, so there is great variety in his posts. If you want to spend some time with some photos here, with incredible information and links, just look at the comments and posts he's got. Woohoo, what fun!"
