Adams Dozen for 2018

Filed under: Adams Dozen — Frank @ 1:00 PM

This post represents the eighth annual installment in my “Adams Dozen” tradition. Whereby, as each year ends, I choose a dozen of my favorite photographs from the past year.

In the first installment of this series, I stated that choosing twelve photographs was “not as hard as I thought it might be”. However, it is my impression that the selection becomes more difficult each year. I do not have a clue why this seems so, but I struggled this year to narrow the group down to just a dozen.

I could have filled out my selection just using photos from our trip to the Grand Canyon and other places in the southwest but I worked to pick images from throughout the year. The first of this set was made back in January and the last two about six weeks ago in mid-November.

Without further ado, here are the twelve photographs, representing roughly one-percent* of my “keepers” for the year:

* For those who are keeping track, my Lightroom catalog says that I made 10,733 exposure this year. Of that number I finalized 1542 (about 14%) of them. The former number is a bit lower than it has been in the past (the average for the five previous years is about 13,800) and the latter number is a bit higher than usual (again the average for the past five years is 10.7%).

Adams Dozen — 2017

Filed under: Adams Dozen — Tags: , , — Frank @ 10:00 PM

In keeping with a tradition that I began back in 2011 (see this post), hereĀ  is my “Adams Dozen” for 2017.

It was not an easy selection. (It never is!) I could have easily chosen a dozen just from either the trips* we made this year.

Instead, I tried to choose photos from throughout the year from both “exotic” locations as as well as from the “neighborhood”.

Adams Dozen – 2016

Filed under: Adams Dozen — Frank @ 6:00 PM

Well, it is that time of the year… time to choose my “Adams Dozen” for 2016.

Long-time readers will remember that at the end of each year I pick my twelve favorite (best?) photos of the year; a tradition I began back in 2011 (see this post).

In choosing photos for this collection, I did not consider images from the three projects (Barn Board, Autumnal Abstracts – 2016 and ‘Belfries, Spires, Etc.’ that I have been working on this year. The first two projects are more-or-less finished while the third is still a work in progress. These will be presented in due time.

Thus, the photos selected for my Adams Dozen are ‘singletons’ (i.e. not part of any project).

Here they are:

I am still having trouble with my gallery software. I have figured out a work around for getting titles displayed but I still am unable to control the order in which the photos are displayed… #$@!&* computers!!!
