Wow--where did the time go?

I can't believe I have not posted here since October and now it is time for a final 2019 note. 

It is customary for many photographers to pick and post their nine or so best photos of the year.  I have great difficulty with this.  I love so many of my photos--so much so that selection for any limiting event (such as an juried show) is always a difficult and disappointing task.  This year I have forgone the anguish by letting the viewers decide. The photo above was my most popular, based on Instagram likes, at least.  It is probably not my best, but such subjective tags are problematic at best.  I can't help but agree with the photographer Imogene Cunningham who, when asked which of her photographs were her favorite, replied "The one I am going to take tomorrow."

I did review many of my photos for the past 12 months and it gave me the chance to review my work with more experienced eyes.  Some were very good--especially those where I shot working outside the box, such as Asbury Park street photography and a model shoot earlier this month.  I am always interested in learning new things and these fit the bill perfectly--and I was thrilled to find I was good at them!

It is also traditional for a commentator/blogger to discuss plans for the coming year.  At this point I am still working on that.  Nothing grandiose or groundbreaking is planned, but that can change.  I am planning to do more outside shows, but they are getting physically more difficult every year and their returns in terms of sales have been slowing.  The why of that is the subject for another day.

Anyway, I wish all readers and photographers a great 2020. Stay tuned.  It should be a hellofa year.
