After a lot of posturing that I could get the number of my favorite photos down to ten in no time (because I had in my head we only had one big photography trip this year, so there wouldn’t be much to pick from), I decided parity with my husband was the easier route and left it at 15. What was illuminating to me, was the variety of subjects and styles I explored this year, and the reinforcement of the old adage that you don’t need to go anywhere to take great photos – you can find great photos out your back door, in your kitchen, or even in your garage.This year I took my camera everywhere – to every family function, every party, every hike, every work event…..everywhere (and I was lucky everyone was such a good sport). So the second old adage that the one thing you can do to improve your photography skills is to have your camera with you, proved true for me as well. In fact, I decided to take the leap and buy into the Fujifilm X series of mirrorless cameras (thank you Jack Graham for the guidance as always). My hope is the lighter weight will leave me even less unencumbered when it comes to taking photos in 2014.
Here, in no particular order, are my favorite photos from 2013.
