I’ve taken nearly 7000 photographs this year. That’s nowhere close to what a lot of people take, but compared with years past it’s a pretty large number for me. Seven Thousand…I’m sure glad that wasn’t film!
A lot of people think it’s cool to do some kind of “Best Of” gallery or a collection of Greatest Hits for the year. It seems a bit cliche to me, but I’m going to do it anyway. But first a disclaimer: Out of the 7000 or so photos I took this year I have only processed a very small percentage of them. So this is not necessarily my “best” or even my “favorite” images from 2011, but it’s a group of photos that pretty well represent what I did this past year. I’ve found it very interesting to see what I’ve done and compare it with what I’ve done in years past.
Most interesting to me is the choice of cameras. Of these 11 photos, 3 of them were shot with the 5D, 3 with the 20D (with Holga lens) and 5 with the G12. The X10 came along a little late, but I’ll be off to a good start in 2012 with it!
I hope you enjoy this little selection of photos. I don’t think there’s anything here that hasn’t already been shown somewhere before, but I think it makes a nice little collection.
I also hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable New Year’s weekend and starts 2012 off making more memories and more photographs.
