Visual Dyslexia on Tyburn Road

This picture describes very well, how dyslexia can impact on the spelling of words. Usually I know most letters of a word, however certain letters I just cannot work out. I will then ask myself: "Is the second letter a "u" or an "o", is the word spelled with one or two "m's'?"

Large telephone number and a posh gate, however I am not sure what you can buy here apart from car spares....

Really interesting. In addition to visually representing dyslexia these photos parallel the visual disturbances of migraine. Temporary blind spots blank out sections of words and letters which, coupled with the brainfog a migraine causes, gives me an approximate idea of what it might feel like to be dyslexic. Your photos perfectly illustrate this visually.

Thank you very much for your constructive comment. I have fortunately never encountered visual disturbances due to migraine or temporary blindness myself, however you made a valid point there, thanks.
