I just did something that I would never do. I entered a photo contest.
I am not exactly why I chose to enter the contest but something just came over me when I saw it in my inbox. I am not exactly sure why I chose this photo either.
Some times you have to do stuff outside your comfort zone to appreciate things more. As I was taking this photo I stopped and enjoyed the view. I don't usually do that when I am out taking pictures. Usually I am consumed with taking a million shots so I know I get one that I know is good. This day it seemed like every shot I took was better than the next.
Another thing I did with this contest that took me out of my comfort level is I asked people to vote for it using social media. I would never do something like that as I consider it spamming my friends. Something weird happened when I did this. A few people that didn't have Facebook and couldn't vote re-tweeted the link to vote to their friends on Twitter. They did this because they enjoyed the picture and were glad to help out in any way they could.
“Comfort Zone” is such a stupid combination of words isn't it?
