This gallery represents what I consider to be my most interesting (and possibly best) photos of 2011. These aren't necessarily the most popular photos I've shown, but the ones that interest me most.
This is the short version, the longer version is on my blog here.
As always, they are an eclectic mix of the scenes, objects and people who interested me over the year.
I find it curious that so many of them are colour. I had no preconceived notions before selecting the set, but given my proclivities, I would have expected more to be monochrome.
This past year has been light on street photography, unlike 2010. I will definitely have to change that trend, considering how much I enjoy street photography and enjoy interacting with people on the street.
One other thing that surprised me was how difficult it was to choose a Top 25. In the past year I relaxed my photographic drive considerably and took maybe only a third of the photos I'd taken in 2010. I had assumed that, as a result of the significantly fewer photos I took, that my selection would have almost been made for me through lack of choice.
As it is, I am still tentative with the choices I've made and have several other photos that I am so tempted to turn this into a Top 30 or Top 35.
I do believe in editing as brutally as I can though, and in a pinch I think I can reduce this to a Top 15. I don't have that many viewers, but I don't believe I should subject people who take the time to look at my photos, to anything but my best.
As always, I appreciate it if you look, I also appreciate it if you comment.
