Welcome to my website. I am a hobbyist photographer living in the UK. I’m partially sighted but registered blind, my condition is called LHON. My eyesight is not everything about me but it has shaped everything I am. I use photography to help me see the world, in a digital era my camera has become my eyes.
I take hundreds of images which I simply throw away as I only use them to see a particular moment in time. For instance photographing a street sign to see where I am, or shooting a train arrival screen to know what platform I need to be on. My world consists of blurred shapes which I photograph to help me understand my surroundings.
As I go through life, I get lucky and take a good shot, which I’ll show to you on this site. Your seeing what I see.
Why Swirly Magnolia? Because its and anagram of my name, which I’ve always regarded as not capturing my personality. Swirly Magnolia does that.
