Occasionally we're lucky enough to find something in life that makes us truly happy. If we're even luckier, we find that doing what makes us happy can bring a smile to others’ faces. That’s the case for my son Elliott. Elliott is fresh off his 15th birthday. He loves life. He loves his friends, and he loves his family. He also just happens to fall on the autism spectrum and has the most amazing way of seeing the world.
A couple of years ago, I gave him his very first OnePlus phone, the OnePlus 7 Pro
, and he fell in love with it. We go hiking and spend as much time out in nature as we possibly can. On one of those adventures, Elliott discovered that he enjoyed taking pictures of the things he came across along the way. Very quickly, he found that he had a passion for photography and that he had a knack for taking pictures in a way that made the people who saw them smile, myself included.
