Dyslexics of the world unite

I am dyslexic particularly when typing. I’m great at reading but pushing buttons to make thought public can be a bit tricky. Dyslexia comes from the Greek language meaning ‘difficulty with words’. It’s a symptom of a number of different information processing disorders in the brain.

I was just re-reading the former post called “Bin bags & Baguettes” and I noticed words missing and spelling mistakes. As with all posts they are proof read usually about six times (not an exaggeration) to check all is in order. I just don’t always see the obvious errors.

I didn’t realise I am dyslexic until I was well in to my forties, I just thought I was a bit stupid and had a bad memory even though I had a job managing a team of five professionals and earning twice the national average salary.

Dyslexia may have helped in my photography check out my “about me”  page to see what I have achieved to date.

Post a comment saying how dyslexia has helped or hindered your photography.

    Hey! I think you have something here for I also have this. I know of many artists who have it. Maybe it is not a bad thing! I do know it is a pain in the bottom.

    I am an overly “lexic” person (I can’t drive by a billboard on the highway without feeling to urge to read it – just addicted to letters). Yet I’ve always had a way with images. Don’t think you have to be one or the other; in fact, visual recognition ability is often what’s mainly impaired in many forms of dyslexia. However, I love your image here! Where was it taken?


  3. Aha! I am with you, brother. I posted about it not long ago: http://kiwsparks.wordpress.com/2011/06/23/et-in-arcania-ego-weird-is-good/
    I do think your work is marvelous, and not *just* because you’re dyslexic! 😉 Come to think of it, I posted a paean to black-and-white work not long ago too:
    I’m delighted to have been introduced to your work and site via Our Mutual Friend Otto von Munchow. Will enjoy exploring and learning from you as well!

      Thanks for dropping by my blog.
