Outside My Comfort Level
The other day during Oyster Run, while photographing the Seattle Cossacks, one of the Cossacks asked if I would like to sit on a bike and have my photo taken. I immediately said no, that would mean getting my photo taken (which I hate), being the center of attention (which I am not always comfortable with), and could potentially mean embarrassment (not sure why). Their response to my NO, they laughed. They couldn't believe I would turn it down.
Then it hit me, what was I so afraid of. Big deal if I get my photo taken and big deal if everyone notices. I thought, what the hell and decided to let go, step outside my comfort zone and just enjoy myself. And, I did.
Expressing myself outside my comfort zone. At least this once. :-0
