I've been trying to pick one photo taken in 2009 to be the "photo of the year" but can't seem to do it. I've narrowed it down to 4 photos. So, here are the 4 2009 photos of the year:
one way - February 10 - while riding my bike over an overpass on the way to visit the dentist, I noticed the symmetry of lines just as a snow squall hit.
longview - June 27 - Taken during day 1 of the 2009 Ride to Conquer Cancer, at the last rest stop of the day before reaching camp. The sky in southwestern Alberta is astounding, contrasted with the lush green grassland.
start of day - November 5 - taken along the 32nd avenue entrance to the northeast corner of the University of Calgary campus, showing the activity of morning commuters, and the construction site for the EEEL building.
dalhousie station - a cold and wet c-train platform.
It was a fun year in pictures. I did the 365photos project again, joined the @dailyshoot project, got published in a photobook of local Calgary photographers, and had a bunch of photos published. Fun stuff.
I'm really happy with how 74 photos turned out - here's my 2009 5 stars gallery - and am really glad I'm learning so much about photography (both technical and philosophical) and still having a blast doing it.
