Photography Through Old Age

Question: How can we continue photography through old age? 
   Years ago I started doing still life because walking was becoming difficult. Next came the sunrises and sunsets (taken from our front porch) while my father struggled with Alzheimer's. Life is short. Push to do what you can do. 
   Artists are driven. There is no turning back. Stopping is not an option. Keep going. Keep doing. Keep growing and sharing. Share beauty when you find it. Share the joy and the sorrow. Tell the truth. Say what you have to say. Show what is true, where you are. Do it. Do whatever your "it" is.

Helpful Hints: Use a tripod and a remote, if needed. Get a rolling camera bag. Use a phone camera, or a point and shoot, when your gear gets too heavy. Sit and shoot. Shoot from your car. Pay attention. See what is right in front of you. Images are everywhere.
