Like Escher's hands,
You and I
Fashion one another,
Lovingly,
Into being.

It's kind of the way I approach photography, myself. A little ironic, I know, but I take pictures in order to show people how I see things as a blind person.

Oh, wow, that's really amazing! :) When you're taking pictures of someone or something, what do you try to base it off of? The atmosphere or noise that you hear maybe?

I've had some vision before, so I have a pretty good concept of what a typical surrounding would and should look like. Often times I will touch a composiition and then step back, holding the amera at face-level as if it's simply a third eye. Usually works halfway decently. :)

Thank you, Michael! You know, I tried to see the picture once when I learnt of it, but even though I couldn't, just the very idea of it was really impactful to me. So, it's stuck with me all this time. :heart:
