i spent most of the day yesterday with my son in portsmouth, both of us with cameras, sneaking pictures of people on the street, talking photography, and enjoying the day. i was pleased at how mobile i was, no wheelchair but managed to walk around quite a bit, resting here and there. i have no idea if any of the pictures i took will be worth even looking at, but the day was fun, and i was glad to be out with my camera.
i’ve spend the morning today looking online for ways to “pimp” my wheelchair, and looking at fancy chairs, and off-road chairs, in general. found quite a few. the trekinetic is almost scary looking, the hippocampe looks like great fun, and these colours are just plain hip, even the web site uses the sexy-babe-as-marketing-tool, which is very unusual for disability products. maybe that’s why i want one. i didn’t see very many accessories beyond carry-bags and cup holders, a market that needs exploiting. i’m planing to develop a camera mount for my chair when i get it – maybe i can market it and make my fortune. you heard it here first.
