  1. You made a very fine selection!
    I love Debra … she is my clear winner ;)

    Here at home we selected another 12 pics for our 2019 photo calendar. This time its from our trip across Ireland.

  2. What a great idea, not sure I could make a list of ten from this year. I might try though. Instagram choose my top 9, but that is an algorithm not my choice. I like your choices though.

    • I find it challenging to choose just 10 every year! That doesn’t mean I’ve taken that many fine-art photos for the ages, but that so many of my photos please an audience of one: me.

  3. Nancy Stewart says:

    Wow …. hard to choose !! They are all really good. I guess I would choose the Wheeler Mission. Keep the photos coming …. we enjoy so many things that you see through your camera lens !!

  4. I particularly like Under the Clock. Casual Man beneath the overwhelming dominance of measured and named Time. The double meaning of the overhead signage – there is the Obvious, but there is also You, the student. The Casual Man chooses Activities over Conferences – which says a lot about Conferences…. And Entertainment is off to the side, disregarded in this rare moment!

  5. What a great idea! As a long time follower of your blog, it has been exciting watching your evolution from a guy writing about old cameras and abandoned roads, to an accomplished photographer.
