Every year, I post my favorite photos. Some years, I’ve been able to cut it down to my top ten, but not this year. For that matter, I couldn’t limit myself to fewer than eleven photos from Cannon Beach… :-D
Many years, I’ve also posted my top nine from Instagram, but again, not this year, as I posted fewer than nine on Instagram during 2019.
These picture all make my happy. I could imagine printing all of them and hanging them on my walls.
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.
This is the third year I have done this; I also posted my favorite photos of 2013 and 2014.
One reason may be that I don’t always post the same pictures on Instagram that I do here. Another is that people give love to pictures for various reasons other than artistic merit.
Carrying a camera with me most of the time, I take a lot of pictures. I take pictures during my bicyclecommute. I take pictures when I fly. I even take pictures while I wait for my flight. And I post a bunch of them.
Of the pictures I took and posted in 2013, these are nine of my favorite.
Finally, I include my favorite animated GIF from the year.
That makes an even ten. Do you have a favorite? Did I miss your favorite?
