I will soon be going in for another ablation as the first one did not take. This is not unusual but after the second one, there is a 90% chance of it being successful. I will be back writing my blog and hope that you will come back and read it.
I thought that my first blog back would be introspective. I would post twelve of my favorite images (in no specific order) from the past year. Hopefully you enjoyed seeing them and feel the same way as I do.
Now on to my twelve favorite images from last year. If you disagree and think another image should be in there, please let me know. If one of these twelve is your favorite, I'd love to hear which one and why.
I just love the mixture of sunset colors and the solitude of this one man on the ocean.
The simplicity and beauty of nature in my garden.
I love the red beaks of the ibis but capturing the drop of water
suspended between them was special and lucky!!
The sky at dusk, the ocean, footprints in the sand, two pretty ladies and a ship in the distance all come together to form a favorite of mine.
I found this field on a trip back to New England but I was a few days late and most of the sunflowers were passed their peak. I walked around hoping to find at least one in good shape and was lucky to find this flower standing tall, with a bee in the middle.
This was a model at last year's Art Deco Weekend in Miami, Florida and as you can see she is a beautiful young lady. I processed the original in color and then started playing around with a copy in Photoshop. I really liked the results.
This is my favorite images from last year maybe my favorite from all our romance sessions: a good looking guy and a truly beautiful young lady playing in the ocean with the Miami skyline in the background. But what makes it my favorite is the fun Amanda was having that day and the joy she displayed.
Who doesn't like a grand sunset especially when it has deep red in the sky and reflecting on the ocean, with the setting sun making it so memorable!!
Two egrets not even 24 hours old. How could it not be a favorite??
I love this for the sheer bravado of this Blue Heron chick, leaving the nest and standing out on a branch. Right below it were alligator infested waters. The parent never took its eyes off the chick. It was like watching someone walking the high wire at a circus, it wavered back and forth a few times but never fell off!!!
This image always make me smile, the gentleman looking back at all the physical activity while he relaxes on his chair in the ocean!!
A single tree standing in the ocean is simplicity at its best. I thought it looked best in black and white.
