Photo essay appointments and encounters of ninety years old blind woman in village in the course of an ordinary day. After I took several photos as an essay, I remembered Ulysses the novel by James Joyce. Same as this essay, Ulysses records events in the lives of central character Leopold Bloom on a single day in Dublin.

* Ulysses is a modernist novel by Irish writer James Joyce and not to be confused with poem in blank verse by the Victorian poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892).
