2015 Review – Photos

While my focus will likely be heavier on writing than on photography, photographs will always be a part of this blog because they are a part of my life.

Looking at this year’s output, one might surmise that I’ve snapped fewer photos than in previous years. Not so . . . but I’ve not processed as much as I have in the past. In fact, I have a huge backlog of photos from three Florida trips from a few years ago, one Yellowstone trip, and various excursion that right now are hiding somewhere in the back of my mind.

Even though I posted less, I still posted a significant amount. I’m not going to link the posts because there are too many, but I will put up a few of the notable photos from this past year.

January:

A lot of January was spent documenting the December 2014 Cruise to the Caribbean. There are a lot of photos, and I’m only sampling a few.

Being January, I also featured weather . . . specifically, winter weather:

February:

February saw a repeat of January . . . travel and weather reports. Some of the travel happened three or four years ago. Another indication of how lazy I am when it comes to processing photos in a timely manner.

Some of the travel was us taking a drive within a few hours from home . . .

March & April:

I’m combining these two months because I took April off from the blog, Facebook, and Twitter. Something I might do again this year.

However, while I took April off, I scheduled a post for each day of April. The photos below are but a small sample of what I posted, and it covered everything from our visits to antique stores to odd stuff that I picked almost at random.

May:

The month of May saw a mix of old and new. I continued with antique store curiosities, added birds, dabbled in flowers, and just anything that interested me.

June:

A busy month . . . went to Yellowstone, watched the thunderbirds, went to an vintage car show, shot a dog, and looked to the sky . . . among other stuff.

July:

July was the month where I started looking back at old photos. I got interest in applying modern post-processing to photos that at one time I might have written off. I also got involved in remaking popular covers and movie posters.

September:

I really started to slow down in September. I also started listing stuff on e-Bay. And, I did a few more covers.

October:

Very few new photos in October. I was gone for a few weeks while I attended the workshop. Sure, I took some photos, but the only stuff I posted was me playing with various processing.

November:

Another slow month as I was busy with many things, including NaNoWriMo. Still, I threw some things up . . .

December:

Even though I had very little this month, I had to look it up because I didn’t remember what I posted . . . a sure sign that I need to get back to doing a bit more photography.

    I like the year in review. I would do the same but I run the risk of most of my followers visiting only the review post once a year and staying home the rest of the time.

      That would make for an interesting New Year’s Day . . . getting 20K+ views in one day and answering four to six comments. I say that because only a few people comment.

      That way, I would save a lot of time answering comments . . . unless they wrote year-long comments . . .

  2. Wow! I’d say you had a beautiful year! And thank you for sharing your photos with us through out the year! Some of them made me laugh, some made me cry (joy tears), some made me smile!
    I really enjoyed your writing this past year…and the book covers, etc., that you created with your own photos, I liked when you let us vote on things, and much more! :-)
    May 2016 be even more beautiful than 2015, for you and Melisa!
    HUGS!!! :-)

    diem3 really said it all for me! But I want to add that I am so happy and appreciative that I have you to provide me with so much beauty and enjoyment from your photos. This review allowed me to recall so many wonderful posts and magnificent photos, BUT the one photo that goes to the top of my favorite list (of this post) is the waterfall collage. Absolutely stunning! Well done, bro!!!

      Hmm . . . I don’t think I have a waterfall collage. There is the October waterfall (after the butterfly), but that is the scene as shot, not a collage.

      Regardless, thanks. It’s fun looking back at stuff I had forgotten and be surprised by it again.

    It’s after the bear with cubs and before the cars, about a third of the way down (in the month of June).
