My best photographs of 2013


Each year I pick my best photographs from the year. Here is 2012. Let’s talk about 2013.

It started slowly. Over the past couple of years, I’ve written less.  I’ve been quiet with photography. But this summer, that started to change. I began taking more photos. I bought a Fujifilm X-Pro 1 – with some lenses. And I began purposely using photography as a creative outlet.  It ended up a good year for photos. Here we go –

This shot was actually with my trusty Leica D-LUX 3 on approach to Sao Paulo; a city that seems to stretch endlessly. This shot communicates that perfectly.

I’ve never seen a city sunset like this. Fortunately I had a Canon 5D on hand to capture Toronto in a way I never thought was possible.

Los Angeles is filled with photo opportunities. This guy on the swings in Santa Monica was an acrobat and performer. I couldn’t resist testing out my new Fujifilm.

I love train stations, so being in Paddington Station in London was a real treat. I wanted to shoot in black and white to bring out the architectural lines.

This was a quick shot and god knows what time it was, before the keynote of Connections 2013. The glow is beautiful despite being shot by my Samsung Galaxy S4 camera which tends to only produce an in-focus shot 8% of the time.

Who doesn’t love Las Vegas. Lea and I headed to Fremont Street. I wanted to shoot a really colorful environment in black and white.

Another shot with my trusty Samsung. This is why I always get a window seat.

I love the majesty and colors in this shot. It also showed me how good my new Fujifilm X-Pro 1 was.

This feels more like a painting than photo. But the glow is beautiful and it’s from Crown Hill Cemetery.

Considering 2014 already includes a trip to India, I’m excited to show off some photos in the next year.

I hope you enjoyed some of these shots. I certainly enjoyed taking them.

    John-You are right, of course. This is not the correct forum. But I've never had the time or deep inclination to register at LGF. Just hoping that a lurker might pick up on this and get it where it needs to go.My comment was more to Ed and would have been more succinctly put as a question:"Ed, do you need to be 100% convinced about an armband to decide if you'll fight by their side?"Archonix-Agreed. I will fight with a leftist by my side if and when he or she shows up for a fight lol.More rational thought can be read at (I love wordsmithing.)

    Tony, Sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing. Please accept my sincere condolences to you and your family. I remember those days when your Dad owned the skating rink and I spent a lot of great time there.
