I’ve been to a portion of the more perilous places on this Earth, and each time, my loved ones sent me off with a notice and a supplication to be cautious.
Nobody at any point cautioned me about Tuscany. However it was there—and not the ghettos in Haiti or the backstreets of the Congo—that I tumbled off a divider and barely got away demise. I smashed my feet and broke my pelvis. Three others tumbled from that divider in the prior months I did—I was the special case who lived.
I feel extremely safe when I travel. The additional time I spend in the remote corners of the planet, the more I find that individuals are individuals, the sustenance isn’t as alarming as it looks, and that life sort of just goes on a similar route there as it does here—wherever here is. That it was Tuscany, Italy, that nearly destroyed me and not one of the spots everybody’s constantly frightened about interests me hugely.
It focuses to the way that our apprehensions are generally a smokescreen. They’re unhelpful and they can dazzle us—and that applies regardless of where we travel or regardless of whether we travel by any means.
Dread is the greatest hindrance in our inventive lives, and it frequently makes us respond in ways that damage the best potential result.
I simply posted another video in the arrangement I made for you. Yet, What If I Bring The Wrong Gear? is a gander at three of the more typical stresses of picture takers, especially the individuals who travel and need to get back home with More Than Snapshots and Postcards. On the off chance that you didn’t see the second video or the first, Have Camera Will Travel, despite everything you can.
In any case, watch the most recent video, since I think on the off chance that we can re-adjust our relationship to these three feelings of trepidation and respond diversely to them, we can keep them from absolutely crashing our innovative endeavors.
