"I like nature. It was very frustrating that I could not get out. When I got my chair it was amazing, I got back my Freedom. You can get out and do it! One trick in photography is making sure you are steady, with the wheelchair I can lock it up and I have my steadying post right there. It gives me the Freedom to go out there. "
