The Power of Sight


If I had to pick one of the five senses that I couldn't live without, it would be sight.  I am very much a visual person, looking at my surroundings the whole time and trying to see things differently.


You can tell while talking to someone their emotions, their engagement, their cheery smile.


The colour of the day, the sunsets, the sunrises.


I love to take photos as you know and tell the story behind them.  I see something and straight away I can visualise that moment in time and what it means to me.


My camera, Big Bertha, invites me through its viewfinder to capture those moments that sing to me.  My left eye looks through this little piece of glass and the moment is framed and captured.


Unfortunately my view finding eye is a little sensitive at the moment, so I have put together some of my favourite shots for this little post.  So many photos that desperately need to be put in a better order... one day, one day!!


The power of sight, to me such an incredible sense that needs looking after and respect.


When was your last visit to the optician?  If not for a while, make that appointment today.  You never know what may be happening in the background.

    Yes, sight is so important and I appreciate mine as I take in all the details of my everyday life. Regular check-ups are important with an ophthalmologist and I go every year.

  18. Lovely post and photos . Sight is one thing I could not stand to loose either . . I have always used my left eye for viewing through my camera as my right eye has always been weaker . We go to our eye Dr every year for a full check up as we age so do our eyes . Hope your eye gets better soon . Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  21. I had never thought about a favourite sense... But I am very shortsighted and I'm lost without my glasses or contacts, so I guess sight is very important to me.

  22. Your photos do tell stories. They invite the viewer to participate. I just had my yearly eye exam - something I think is very important, especially as I age.
