Tell us a little more about the picture that you submitted for lofi

The photo was taken in 2020 during a Lockdown walk down Ironwell Lane. I wanted to capture the tower that is surrounded by nature. Being a blind photographer i like to mimic eye blindness in my photography, creating patches of sight through a small window of vision.

Just continuing everyday and pushing myself to keep going till my eyes draw the curtains permanently.
