Cheesin on one of the most beautiful lakes in the world!
Trying to decide if it makes sense to run into Shanghai 🇨🇳 on a 6 hour layover I have there this weekend.
Anyone been to that airport?
Know if it’s easy to get in and out of? To make it back in time
As humans we get comfortable. With a lot of things in our life. Over time we are building comfort zones around our activities. Discomfort vanishes. With it that the chance of experiencing something different. We forget that discomfort helps is growing.
The comfort I am referring to in this situation is my 16-35mm lens. I had it on my camera body the whole day. I think even the whole week. I happen to get into a certain comfort zone with this lens. I know what it can do and what not. Since I own this lens I often times traded a better working focal length against the comfort of not having to change lenses. Laziness. A bad behavior that causes the craft to suffer.
For this shot I forced myself and did it. When seeing this place I knew I would need the compression of a longer focal length. I grabbed the other lens. Put it on. Shot. And was instantly happy. Story end.
Just wanted to use this simple post to encourage you people out there to change your focal lengths more often. Even when it’s really uncomfortable. A variety of photographs that were shot with different focal lengths gives your body of work healthy benefits.

Venice is my favorite place in Italy so far, followed closely by Firenze. Even in the winter, Venice was full of tourists like myself, window shopping and ducking into small cafes for a little bit of warmth. I found myself lost in beautiful, winding alleys more than once before abandoning Google maps in my purse and letting my feet go where they wanted.
