Taking a knife to a gun fight

Having a landscape lens when you come up on wildlife is like taking a knife to a gun fight. I chose a landscape lens on a river boat ride knowing full well there would be wildlife while using internal reasoning that I didn’t want to lug around heavy equipment – after all this was a leisure trip.

Guess what… yup, entering a cove there was a troop of monkeys 😂

What did I do?  What any gunfighter would I took the shots knowing I’d gone to a gunfight with a knife.

All we are is dust in the wind so count your blessings and go take more photos.

  1. They turned out well! You use what you have and hope for the best.
    I bought a new on the market ultra wide angle lens just before I went on a river cruise in France. I never took it off. Got macro pix of orchids to cathedral shots.
    I took the zoom to Australia and used it once. What a weight in my backpack. Going on a cruise in July to Alaska….

    • Sounds as though you mastered your ultra wide angle lens! That’s half the fun of photography learning to use what you have on the camera at any given moment 😊 Hope you have a stellar cruise to Alaska!!
