At the end of each year, Time magazine and other publications share their best photos in print and online.
That’s their version. What’s yours?
If you have a camera of any type, there are probably photos within the equipment that you were proud to capture.
- Someone’s birthday
- A family gathering
- Flowers, birds, insects
- Your beautiful pet(s)
- A favorite destination
Some photos are shareable, and others are for your eyes only.
I remember when taking photographs was costly. That was when the 110 camera was popular, and if you remember that, you know what I mean. Even photos from non-digital 135mm cameras had to be budgeted. The processing cost rivaled a week’s worth of groceries if you were a photo fanatic like me.
Now it’s easy to point, shoot, and see what you’ve captured. In fact, it’s too easy at times, especially if someone posts an unflattering photo of you online without your approval. Thankfully, that can be remedied by finding instructions on how to untag it through an online search.
Give yourself permission to take more photos (especially if you’re not taking photos now) and create your own gallery any time you wish. Technology makes this fun hobby, and sometimes serious endeavor, very easy.
Here are three of my favorites taken this year:
A gas station somewhere in Oklahoma enroute by car to Nevada. I adore this iconic scene.
Mae and Pepi laying on a hotel bed once we arrived in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They look pooped even though I’m the one who drove for 10 hours.
My mom and me at a favorite restaurant celebrating her birthday. She’s chowing down on the appetizer.
Look back at what you’ve captured. Can you choose between 6-12 of your favorites, or are there many more?
