I know I am a bit tardy in posting the “Best of” for 2011. After all, it is almost the end of January. Most photographers put up their “Best of” a week into the new year. Not me. Always behind the curve. It took me a long time to decide what I wanted to say with my slideshow. I wanted to start pulling out all the photos that I would enter into a print competition, but my mouse kept clicking on the ones that were emotional to me. So…I went with my gut.
Some of these photos I have entered into competitions. Some have even won a First, Second or Third. I am humbled and honored by those awards because I have competed against some very fine photographers. But the bulk of these photos are not the most technically correct nor have the best composition nor the most fantastic bokeh. Nor do they take your breath away. Some are even a bit blurry. But I love each and every one and I remember the exact moment that the shutter was clicked and why I took the photo.
So here they are. I hope you enjoy.
PPS. I would really like to embed this slideshow on my blog, but I apparently don’t have the Ninja Skills that it takes to figure it out. So, I’ve included a link (above). But because hope springs eternal, I’m leaving the embed code below just in case it decides to magically work later on.

PPS. Don’t try to figure out the meaning of my Facebook Cover (above). I just love to design with scrapbook elements and I love Lori Davison’s (scrapbook graphics) work.
