Stephen Wiltshire draws Rome after 20 Minute Helicopter Ride

When he was very young Stephen Wiltshire was diagnosed with autism. He is also considered a savant.  He has also been called “the human camera” because of his ability to draw panoramic city views after a short helicopter ride.  Check out this video of him taking on the task of drawing Rome.

Unbelievable isn’t it?  He has also drawn Tokyo, New York, Sidney and many others.

After seeing this video you are probably thinking like I did, “Wow I could never do anything as incredible as that!!!”  I want to tell you, you are absolutely WRONG!!!

Think about it for a moment.

  • When you feed the homeless that is as incredible as Stephens’ drawings.
  • When you lend your ear to a person in distress that is as incredible as Stephens’ drawings.
  • When you give comfort to those in pain that is as incredible as Stephens’ drawings.
  • When you use your gifts to be a blessing to others that is as incredible as Stephens’ drawings.

Let this young man who never learned to speak until he was 9 inspire us all today.

Let’s do something today as incredible as Stephens’ drawing.

    Hello Peter
    Can you imagine, we all have this inside of us. The powers that be in the neurological fields say that we only use aprox 5% of our brains. (I’ve worked with and driven behind many who that is highly exaggerated) The points you referenced to as incredible we’re very much on point; but that fellow is awesome.
    All the best

    • Sean you are right while we all have gifts Stephens’ gift certainly do stand out. He is a great inspiration. I wonder what would have happened if his teacher had not encouraged his talent? His world, his parents world and the world in general would be a different place.
