Introduction

Hello everyone
I am a tripple amputee photographer and i lost my limbs in a motorcycle accident three years ago. My plan is to document the hardships and preseverence of the so called disabled population worldwide. I am currently training for the 2016 Para-cycling team and you can view a little video about me at this link.

Clarior e tenebris, as the Romans occasionally said; brighter from the darkness, or, to paraphrase, the darker the night the more brightly the candle shines.

Dexter looks like a great friend; I suspect the two of you will go far. You say in the video that you had two choices; you didn't, you had two options, which was one choice, but I'll forgive you for the semantic error even though I'm a twit.

Good luck with the cycle training, and with the documenting of the hardships and perseverance of people worldwide with disabilities. In the video you come across as the sort of guy who can make a difference for the better.

Cheers,
Tim

Welcome to the forum, that's a most worthy plan and should help and motivate others, provided you can get the airplay and coverage to get it out there in front of folk, good luck with the documentary.

Keep us up to date with you progress.

Welcome aboard! Never giving up indeed! I know you're not the first person to go through that change, realising that when you fall so much further than you thought possible the only real option is to get up and fight back.

You're an inspiration. Thank you, and good luck with your project.
