At this time I like to look back at my photos, choose my favourites, reflect on the year. Honestly, I am done reflecting on this year…so here is a quick post about my favourite photos and my Instagram top nine.
The top nine from Instagram was easy to write about as they were not my choice. They were selected by the instagram community.
I found it interesting that the photo of myself for Holga Week got the most likes. I rarely post photos of myself on Insta. Three of the other photos are from a Holga camera too, so who needs an expensive camera 🙂
I was glad to see a throw back from my time in Japan was in there. It sounds strange but I am beginning to forget what it was like to live there…or if I even did. This year seems to have wiped it from my memory a bit.
What about my own personal favourites? Well, I looked back through my instagram feed to chose those. It is a lot easier to make a list that way, as all the information is listed in the tags.
This year the choice seems to be more personal than artistic. The year in general made it tricky to get out and about as much. As someone I know pointed out, I have had a cracker of a year in terms of health. I have definitely had covid once, probably twice. Then I had a couple of stinker colds…non-covid, which lasted a while. Finally, I damaged my knee and was unable/unwilling to go to the doctors. It meant I couldn’t walk or cycle too much this year, but I didn’t do too bad really all things considered. It could have been so much worse. ‘Tis but a scratch.
So here we go…in no particular order. Oh and these are screen grabs as it would take ages to go through my actual files…and I am done with the year. Plus, it is my blog and I am ok with the quality.
So there you have eleven photos, not 10 or 9 for my own list…my list, my rules. It is definitely a different kind of selection than last year. But it has been a different kind of year. It is interesting that I usually shy away from the camera, but this page has three photos of me on it. Maybe that will be a new trend for me. If I can’t find a model, I can been my own.
