"There's nothing for me to shoot, there aren't anything interesting around me"
"You're so lucky! You live in an interesting place where there's so much going on!"
"If I only have a better lens, I can shoot nice pictures like him"...
We've all said the same things one time or another, especially when we think we don't have enough camera gear or opportunity to travel, etc. We all know the simple fact that the reasons were telling ourselves are merely excuses, nothing more.
