As always, these are not necessarilly the best and most beautiful shots of the year, but they are my favorites-- even though some depict diffucult days here in our area.
It almost didn't happen. I nearly lost my files due to a computer issue back in October, but a talented techie saved my butt. He also saved my database of the times, places, and subjects of my photographs.
I learned my lesson. The database is now a Google document, immune from local hardware issues. I also promise to be a bit better at backing up my work.
Going through a year's worth of photos is always a lot of fun. I now spend a lot of my professional time behind a desk, but I do get out once in a while. It was an interesting year, and there was never a shortage of subjects to photograph. Reviewing the shots is a nice way to remember the places I've been and the things I've seen.
The Top Ten starts tomorrow. You have been warned.
