I am fortunate because I can use both hands fairly interchangeably. But let's face it: The world is designed for right-handed people.
Most days, I don't even think about the fact that a camera is designed for right-handed use. But when you want to use your right hand to click a camera at the same time you're using the throttle on a 4-wheeler, it just doesn't work.
Go ahead: I'll wait. You try holding a camera (or your camera phone) and taking a photo with your left hand by clicking the button on the right-hand side of the camera.
So ... true confessions. I had to come to a stop on the 4-wheeler to take a few photos of the cattle drive the other day. Don't tell the boss 'cause I don't want to lose my sweet job on the "Japanese horse." I am usually the blocker at the road, getting the cattle to turn the right direction.

In an ideal world, cattle would just head down the road and stay there. But, just like humans who are tempted by tasty goodies, the cattle head off for the yummy stuff - at least in their eyes. Those fields of bright green wheat were just too hard to resist - kind of like frosted sugar cookies for me.
