According to my yearly practice, here are a few of my favorite pictures I posted here over the past year. A couple of these actually have people in them. Sadly, I took only one of these in the second half of the year, and that was July 4th. Cannon Beach accounts for 40% of these.
Having posted more than nine pictures to Instagram this year, my “top nine” actually might have some significance.
After lunch, I walked back to work. Taking a short detour through “Circle Park” I made another pass at the daffodils from yesterday. I think I like this shot better. Now I need a blue sky for the background.1
And an assistant to hold the diffuser. And a mat to lie on so I’m not just holding the camera low, aiming blind, and hoping for luck. And maybe someone to block the traffic because I’d be lying in the road. :-)
I took Meisa and my camera for a short walk this afternoon. It’s only 47°F and a little windy, but that’s as warm as it’s supposed to get here in Hillsboro today. As a plus, the overcast conditions softened the shadows for the pictures.
