Hawkeye | Blind Beauty Issue 40
“Not only do I lead the way for Cassie to have a fun, confident, and independent life, I’m showing others in a light-hearted manner anything is possible despite the challenges.” ~Hawkeye
Typically on Blind Beauty, we feature photos and words of wisdom from beautiful blind & visually impaired women. Today’s Blind Beauty Issue 40 is a little special as we present, a rising star, Hawkeye, of Hawkeye’s Travels.
Many people think inanimate objects have no thoughts, feelings, or opinions. Between me, you, and the internet, for the love of all things sacred, please, please do not tell Hawkeye. This is one personable, well-traveled white cane.
Not only does Hawkeye help Cassie navigate the world, he does so with a humorous flair. When you visit Hawkeye’s Instagram account you’ll notice the majority of the pictures have a blurry background. These images attempt to simulate what it is like to not see clearly.
Hawkeye is a white mobility cane with a rolling ball tip. What makes Hawkeye stand out from other rolling balls are the eyeballs on the ball. When Hawkeye is doing a photo shoot, the ball is in an upright position to show us his facial expression.
We hope you enjoy this small sampling of Hawkeye’s travels.
Hawkeye’s Photo Descriptions:
- Found my name on a sign, it was only a matter of time. The word “Hawkeye” is in white letters on a large hanging sign in the background of this photo.
- Getting down and dirty in the rainforest. Forest debris covers Hawkeye’s head.
- That awkward moment when you are out and about and a shark tries to eat you… A large poster of Jaws appears to ready to chomp down on Hawkeye’s head.
- Help! I’m being attacked by leaves!! It’s that time of the year again when Cassie manages to walk in all of the piles of leaves, definitely must be autumn. Autumn colored leaves surround Hawkeye.
- When you want to have your picture taken at a magic show and someone gives you bunny ears… Two fingers are behind Hawkeye’s head. In the background is a magic show stage setup.
- Getting into the Christmas spirit with some tinsel and lights. Our snazzy looking Hawkeye is wearing green tinsel.
- Having breakfast with the Roos. In the background are two kangaroos.

The image is a faux fashion magazine cover titled Blind Beauty. In this selfie, Hawkeye is on the cover with sand on his head. He doesn’t mind getting a bit sandy to get to where he needs to go. In the background, we see a beach, with aqua colored water between two mountains against a blue sky. Blocks of text superimposed on Hawkeye’s photo are: “Bold | He Keeps Pressing Onward,” “Blind | He Has Deeper Insight,” “Beautiful | He Sees To The Heart Of Others”
