The picture of a dustbin may look unremarkable if you do not know who took it and why.
It was taken by Mr William Hiu (above), 58, who is visually impaired.
But to him, it is something important as it serves as a guidepost.
“There was this time when the cleaners moved this dustbin at Ngee Ann Polytechnic and I became totally lost,” he said with a laugh.
The dustbin tells him where exactly he is; when he reaches it, he knows he has to turn left to continue walking to his workplace at the polytechnic.
To raise awareness of how visually impaired persons live their lives, five of them from the Dialogue In The Dark project at the polytechnic are embarking on a photo journey, attempting to show others what the blind “see” in their lives.
