Thirteen for ’13
Everyone’s doing it – compiling “best of” lists for 2013 – it’s the time of year for retrospection.
As part of my process of saying good-bye to 2013, I chose thirteen favorite images from this year.
Picking my overall favorite image of the year was easy – “The Rebel” (above) has wonderful reflections and golden light – but also suggests a story. And it is the story possibilities that excite me. A goal for future work.
I went through multiple iterations in choosing the other photographs of this baker’s dozen. I began by selecting one image per month but that became too restrictive – some months were better than others. So I dropped the month criteria and eventually came up with three groups, roughly organized around three different “themes”: Abstract/Reflections, Black and White and Post-Processing/Textures.
I think these combinations highlight my major explorations and interests this year – celebrating new series, unforgettable trips, hometown tourism and Photoshop experimentation.
I hope you enjoy this walk down memory lane. Here’s to the joys of 2013!
