Best of 2013

1-IMG_9647I chose this as my Best of the year for the same reason I chose it for the monthly best of. It is the clearest and most compelling story to me. Others have good stories, some of the stories you only understand if you know what is behind the picture. But anyone who has ever taken a child up to meet a “character” and had them suddenly turn away knows what is happening here. There are a thousand details that tell me more, but anyone can build a complete narrative here. So we close out the year and I begin another year of photograhpy.


Best of Each Month 2013

I love photography because of the story you can tell with no words.

What stories do you imagine as you look through these?

Best of October

Thank you to my Sister In Law L- for helping me pick out the Best of the Month

6-IMG_1544What I really love about this shot is the wonderful story it tells, and how much you can tell about this person from this tiny moment caught as a stranger walks by.


Best of July

July has wrapped up and I think this has been a really good month for me.

Much of it was dedicated to bonus posts that gave a showcase of my PRIDE photographs, you can see them on my Flickr Feed.

I also highlighted the Cultures of India a performance that I was able to see. But before that at another Rochester Music festival I was able to get this portrait. I am highlighting this because it represents what I love about photographing artists and musicians. I strive to capture the moment where they forget about the audience and are lost in the music.



Then I have this shot from Silver Lake in Rochester, I love the lines that are created by the lake and the detail of the feather. IMG_3531

The very best one of the month is one of my last. It represents my style. Highlighting that which might go unnoticed. A pool of rubber ducks wearing goggles. I managed to get such a perfect angle with only one “looking” dead on. You can see the rest of my Fair photos on my Flickr Feed.
