When I travel I like to spend one day just going about the city with one or two Lensbaby lenses. Because they are manual lenses and there is a very small area of focus, you need to do just that: focus.
Challenging yourself as a photographer and creator is so important to your personal evolution as well as your sanity. When you get stuck, you stagnate and spin around not knowing where to go and you can spin straight down a spiral into despair – Oh, the heart of a tortured artist!
When you feel like you are repeating yourself or are empty of new desire, do something that challenges you. I had one chance to get these images because I visited this place once with one lens and I needed to get the shot with what I had.
I love my Lensbaby world because it is so different to what I use in my commercial photography. When I shoot with my Lensbaby, I am creating just for me and my journey with the world I find myself in.
