Leadership reports said the housewife had complained of the frequent visits to the husband by the woman. During one of the visits, Rosemary had warned her rival that she would teach her some lessons.

Read The Inspiring Story of Taiwo Lawal, The Blind Female Photographer

I found this inspiring stary on Betterbext and deemed it wise to share it with you all. There is no excuse for failure. Read and Enjoy!

You may consider this the ordinary routine of a photographer. Yes it is. But, what makes it extraordinary is that Taiwo Lawal, the photographer, is totally blind.

Lawal, 35, felt her way round the tripod to our correspondent and explained with a smile, “At the start, I kept wondering how a blind person could learn photography. I thought it was impossible. But the person who introduced me to it said it was possible. So, I agreed to do it.”

She gave her consent to learn the art of photography two years ago. Now, Lawal takes photographs like someone that is not blind.

She continued: “I’ve learnt a lot about the lens of a camera, the view finder, LCD screen and so many parts of the camera.”

Medical science has stated that blind people tend to show enhanced ability in the other senses. This probably applies to Lawal.

Giving an insight into how she is mastering the art of photography, Lawal said she uses her sense of hearing and touch to take pictures.
