Lindsay Allen isn't the luckiest person in the world, but he adapts well.
He may have Asperger syndrome and may be legally blind, but give him a camera and he will go miles. Literally.
"I travel to many places to create opportunities for photos," Mr Allen said.
"I've been places like the Cook Islands, Turkey, Canada, Japan and France.
"The most memorable photo I've ever taken was a block of flats in Hong Kong on Shanghai Street on the Kowloon side.
"I was supposed to travel to Antarctica later this year, but due to COVID-19, I wasn't able to.
"I've also booked a trip next year to be with the eagle hunters in Mongolia and to both Broken Hill and Lake Ayre."

Born in Kingswood, NSW, the passionate photographer laid hands on his first camera at the age of 10 as a gift from his father.
Five years later, he bought his first camera, a Praktica LTL3, and would take photos of anything he found interesting.
"I like taking photos that tell a story," Mr Allen said.
"A picture is better because language can be ambiguous.
"I bought my first camera at a chemist in Garema Place in Canberra for $129 because back then they had a partnership with Hanimex.
"I now use a Nikon 3000."
Although Mr Allen is legally blind, he isn't completely blind as he only has scarring on his corneas, which he found out when working in a tax office in Canberra.
Mr Allen didn't have the easiest of childhoods, having parents who split up and also going to three different high schools.
"I went to Colyton, Beacon and Canberra High School," he said.
"My parents divorced and I chose to live with my mother before going on to live with my grandparents.
"After high school, I studied basic computing at Canberra Tafe."
He's taken photos pretty much his whole life, so you'd expect him to have a mountain load of photos piled up and he does.
"I have a big hard-drive with over 60,000 photos," he said.
"I like sharing them with people and I've even had some published in the Goulburn Post calendar throughout the years.
"I'd have a whole lot more, but I lost heaps of them as photos used to be printed out."
After having a few jobs in the computer programming industry, he retired and moved to Goulburn in 2006 where he lived at the Kelvale Lodge for the first couple of years.
He absolutely loves the town, calling it "a wonderful place".
"The main street is the best part of town for me because of the architecture," he said.
"Heritage is our brand and we need to keep it because it distinguishes us from other competition.
"Heritage is life and all around us."
Lindsay Allen will undoubtedly continue to take photos for many years ahead.
