    Amazing Paralympics photographer

    Here is his photography. https://www.instagram.com/joaomaiafotografo/

    Now what makes him so amazing? He is blind, He says "You don't need to see to take photographs. My eyes are in my heart," he says. "When I am close enough I feel the runners' heartbeats, their steps," he said, "and then I'm ready to take the picture."

    What an extraordinary achievement! It would have to go close to ranking up there with Beethoven composing symphonies when he was profoundly deaf. So many inspiring people come to the fore during the paralympics.
