I hadn’t considered doing a post summing up my year in photography, but today I saw a tweet from Phill Price reminding people to submit their Top Ten to Jim M. Goldstein’s blog project. I’ve run across Jim’s blog before, but for some reason I haven’t subscribed in Google Reader. Well, that has been fixed.
I usually find it hard to pick shots I like. The shots I like are often not the ones that get the most views or faves. I went through my Zooomr photostream and picked the ones I like best that were also favorites of the Zooomr community. So here are my best shots of 2008, in no particular order:
Dreaming of Summer
Elk Lake, Oregon. One of my favorite places.
My wife always has fresh flowers in the house, so I get a lot of opportunities to take flower shots.
Barack Obama, plate 6
I had to include one of these shots. I was one of the highlights of the year for me, and the nation.
