This blog is a record of some of the photographs I have taken since being diagnosed with a type of motor neurone disease (known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease in the US).

I’m disabled, but am determined MND won’t stop me enjoying my passion for capturing life through a lens. So, after years of wearing out my shoes walking with heavy cameras, these days I take most of my photos from a mobility scooter with small Olympus micro four third kit.

Click on the pages in the site menus for my story and more of my pictures, and do visit again soon. The site is regularly updated.

This image was taken on 4 wheels with an Olympus OMD EM5 ii and a 17mm f1.8 lens – 200th sec, f6.3, iso 100. I have started experimenting with a 34mm equivalent prime and zooming with my wheels – much as I used to with my feet – instead of relying on a conspicuous zoom lens. I hope you like the results 🙂
