Mary’s Favorite Photos From 2017

1710_MFA_Eastern Sierra IR_426

Well, that time of year has come again.  It’s the time when Peter insists on engaging in some sadomasochistic form of torture by insisting I cull through 1000+ photographs and pick my favorites.  Its akin to asking someone to pick their favorite child.  At least this year he gave me 15, instead of the usual 10.

As I was looking through the year, I was struck by the variety of experiences I had.  From the superbloom of the desert southwest, to the southwest icon Las Vegas, to iconic old England, to the ancient glacier-carved landscapes of New Zealand.  I noticed I remain consistently attracted to intimate landscapes and abstracts, natural and urban, while continuing to try to push myself to “see wide”.

So here they are, in no particular order (if I had to rank order them I would quit trying to engage in this nonsensical exercise – I only do this much to preserve martial harmony).
