moments in focus…

getting out of my comfort zone…awkward, uncomfortable, trying something new…


Comfort Zone, we all have one, it’s just that some peoples are huge and others, not so huge.  I like staying in my comfort zone, whether it’s life or photography, you know it’s, well, comfortable. I find my comfort zone narrowing as I get older, and that scares me a little bit.  The solution? GET OUT OF IT!  When I was younger, that was no problem, perhaps because life was always changing and I was always learning.  Life still changes, but not like 30 years ago, or even 15 years ago, and I am still learning, but it seems different somehow.

As for today: 6:30am, that’s the time I left the house.  Early for a Sunday, actually that is early for any day of the week,  but the light is nice at that time of day, so once again I grabbed my gear and took of.  I decided to head downtown today, not sky scraper downtown, small town downtown. As for my comfort zone, I did stretch it some today, I took inspiration from others, so I thank you.

Once again: ‘Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.’ -Brian Tracy
