Disperser 2016 In Review: Photos – Fourth Quarter

Looking at my meager (photographic) offerings one might conclude my interest in photography is waning. Au contraire, mes lecteurs. Just in the months of October, November, and December, I shot 4,278 photographs, or 1,426 photos per month, or 47.5 photos per day, or roughly 2.64 photographs per waking hour.

The last quarter — saw mostly Hawai’i content . . .

Contrary to what some people think, I don’t post all the photos I take. But, yes, I post a lot.

Some are interesting . . .

I closed off October not with a photo but with a manufactured image.

The notable November photos included waves . . .

. . . some of which looked very nice in B&W . . .

For some reason, I then felt compelled to use one of my photos to comment on matters I felt were important.

Best not dwell on that here . . . 

We did stop by the Volcano National Park and saw . . .

That’s right, lava. That had me dig up some old photos (from my film days) . . .

The new lava photos are not nearly as impressive . . . and that’s OK.

I did not manage many avian shots (dang, few, I will tell you), but these I liked . . .

. . . as in they were giving thanks for not being eaten. 

This was my Thanksgiving meal . . .

I did look back to a long-ago trip through the Badlands . . .

. . . and, once again, in B&W and almost B&W . . .

At the end of November, I reminisced about snow . . .

. . . as I contemplated surfing (not as in actually doing it; just as in watching) . . .

Coral. Dead coral. December started with Dead coral.

That’s right . . . B&W December dead coral. 

And, as long as I was working in B&W . . . 20160920_dsc9358_1_dxo_digi

Wait a second . . . we’re in December! 

Look, if I have to repost what I just posted, it means my readers are not paying attention to what I’m doing, so reposting stuff is not going to help.

I’m going to call this one as done . . . 

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
