I just read these two lines in a little writeup on a blog about someone traveling with just a single camera and one prime lens.

Some think they can just zoom with their feet. *This probably isn't why a good photographer changed focal length.*

Changing focal length can keep the subject the same size while including more or less of the background. It can make the mountains behind the subject appear enormous or can make them appear tiny. It can give a sudden shift from in focus to out of focus areas or make it gradual.
