editorial image

An Arbroath photographer has had one of his pictures of a local landmark turned into charity painting by the so-called ‘Blind Painter’. Phil Petrie’s picture ‘The Arbirlot Waterfall’ was picked up over Facebook by former Royal Navy Petty Officer Derek O’Rourke, the ‘Blind Painter’, who raises money through his artwork for The Scottish War Blinded and Blind Veterans UK. To see some of his work visit Mr Petrie took up photography as a hobby four years ago and is a member of Carnoustie Camera Club.
