Imperial Beach, California
My friend and fellow photographer Peter Tellone posted an exceptional video today of his 2019 Photos in Review and it reminded me that it's that time of year again. I have not even begun to filter through the over 400 images I've ranked as 5-Star. Ansel Adams said that a crop of 12 excellent images is a good year. Based on my 400 I guess Ansel was just an underachiever. Those mighty 400 will quickly be whittled down to 30 or so over the next few weeks and then, more painfully, the count will be hacked and whacked and clubbed until it's at twelve. By the time I'm down to 50 I'll realize (once again as it's a yearly self-realization) that I awarded high marks to lots of substandard work, crap really.
Stay tuned, it'll be early January before I have my twelve ready for company. In the meantime grab a cup of coffee and watch Peter's video, it'll put a smile on your face.
