"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

“The Human Camera” – This is truly incredible!

Often you will hear in the world of photography that one needs to keep a open mind, to learn how to “see” their surroundings, to try and “take it all in”.
I thought I was pretty good at it.
But, … this guy is truly a master!
I believe this video has been around for about two years, but I am seeing it for the first time.
Simply incredible, … and says so much about the human mind!!

In some ways this video relates to macro photography and being able to see the smallest of details, and recording them.

  3. Thank you, I’ve never seen that before. I’ve drawn things all my life and to be honest my first camera was to grab pictures to draw from not to use for itself. i’ve merged them since though. Anyhow thank you again its refreshing and humbling to see one so great who might at first glance seem to be disabled.

  6. Thanks for the video and the link. I read of stories like him in the books of Oliver Sacks (and Steven I see now was one of the people he mentioned), but I have never seen anybody like him in action. Really impressive.

  8. Stephen Wiltshire, you indeed have a terrific memory as well as a great gift from god! It is amazing how you have overcome your disability and not let the autism get in your way of life! I to have a disability of being in a wheel chair due to having “Osteogenesis Imperfecta,” so I know what it is to deal with living life to the fullest with a disability. God has surely blessed you and I hope you keep up the good work, and I will surely pass this along to my friends and family for their viewing.
