Talk about creative.

Slovenia-based photographer Matej Peljhan recently teamed up with a 12-year-named Luka who suffers from muscular dystrophy, to create a wildly imaginative series of photos depicting the boy doing things he is simply unable to do because of his degenerative condition.

WINNIPEG - A legally blind Winnipeg photographer has taken top prize in a national photo competition.
Tara Miller, 39, found out Tuesday she has been awarded the grand prize in the Canadian National Institute for the Blind’s Eye Remember national photography competition.
Miller’s striking photo of lightning over a sunflower field during sunset taken last summer near Starbuck, Man., earned her top spot.
"I was so excited to get home and see what I got and praying that it worked out," she said of the photograph.
The competition was open to all photographers across the country, not solely the visually impaired. Miller was the only entrant of the five who were shortlisted for the grand prize who has sight loss, and the CNIB was unaware of her limited sight until her image was selected for the final five.
Miller has less than 10% of her eyesight due to glaucoma, the disorder the CNIB was raising awareness about with the photo contest.
I say: you don’t have to have sight to be able to see something beautiful…or sense it for that matter.

This is Gavin, he’s an inspiration, he comes down to the skatepark on his wheel chair and drops in and does manuals and all sorts, it’s brilliant to watch someone making sure their disability doesn’t stop them having fun.
