Favorite Photos of 2019 is Patti’s pick for the theme of this last Lens-Artists Photo Challenge of the year. She organized her eight top shots by category and included a ballot to collect votes for her readers’ favorites. Check out her excellent Challenge HERE.
I have selected 12 of my favorite photos from 2019 to make into a Retrospective Calendar. I have to admit that the photos were not necessarily taken in the month to which I assigned them for this gallery. What that means is that some months, I did not take any great photos…and in others I took more than one.
These photos all have special meaning for me, and I hope that you find them interesting for your own reasons. If you would care to comment about your favorites, that would really be uplifting to me. Thank you!
May 2020 provide you with at least 12 great shots and many more great memories!
The sister cats!!! I could go into technical reasons why the composition, light values, contrasts & tones, or sociological resonance make this a stellar shot, but I’m commenting to uplift and not inform. Those cats tickle my heart over and over again on each arm I see them, whenever I get to see them.
You have uplifted me from a pretty low place today! Thank you so much, dear Sister!
Love and warmth emanating, Priscilla – hope 2020 will bring you even more joy!
Thank you, Ann-Christine. I am hoping for many things!
Hi, Priscilla. A beautiful collection. I especially love your portraits and those water droplets. Gorgeous! Wishing you joy in the new year.
Thank you, Patti. I was trying to figure out how to vote for multiple shots on your post, but as soon as I selected a new one, the first one vanished, so I only voted for one. But there were many favorites!
Hi, Priscilla. Thank you!! That’s wonderful to hear–in terms of several favorites. Too bad about the voting. I had set it to multiple options, but I guess that didn’t work! All the best to you in the new year.
Beautiful 2019 favorite gallery, Priscilla! I love the water droplet image and the Nov. and Dec. 💖
Happy New Year!
Thanks, Amy! Water droplets are collecting the most votes, it seems.
Awesome work! I thought the water drops are pretty nice but Nov and Dec are pretty good too. Happy New Year! Looking forward to 12 more great images.
I am a sucker for landscapes myself. They’re always my favorites.
I like minimalist images a lot. I get so wrapped up in what’s going on around me, I forget to look for them sometimes.
Great photos. Friends with dogs is my favorite.
Thanks, John. That’s my daughter and her wife and my grand-dogs, actually. They’re big favorites of mine!
I like the water droplets and I also like November because of the mysterious/mystical quality of the light. But I especially like December because I look forward to seeing you on West Coast beaches in person in 2020!
What a wonderful comment from my dear Sister! Thank you for seeing my art and seeing my heart at the same time. I love you!
Great photos, Priscilla! I love your November!
Happy New Year! 🙂
Thanks,Ana! This morning is another foggy day, but with less light. I’m looking forward to increasing light as we move away from Winter Solstice.
These are all lovely, but March resonates with me most.
Cheers and all the best for 2020!
Thanks! May 2020 bring you good things, too!
March, June, November and of course December are those that most resonated with me Priscilla, but all are wonderful. Thanks for your continued support and Happy New Year to tou
Thanks, Tina! Happy New Year – I look forward to seeing what the group comes up with in 2020.
Lovely mix of shots as ever, Scilla. The Kicking up Heels pic made me grin and want to have a go! Here’s to 2020, May it bring all that you’d wish for yourself. M
That’s my middle daughter on the beach in Oregon. I love that it shows the exuberant personality she’s had since childhood. Sometimes that’s hard to hang on to once you’re over 30. I’m glad she’s still got it! All the best in 2020 to you, Meg.
Such a wonderful variety of photos – from macro droplets (!) to a sweet young helper looking straight at the camera. I am most intrigued by February and December. The moods leap out.
I can see why these photos are favorites!
Thanks for pointing out the contrasting moods. To be honest, that hits the nail on the head when I think of those two people, and now I really appreciate that the photos are genuine illustrations. Thanks!
You’re most welcome!
It is always a joy to pop in and see what you are posting dear Priscilla and I intend to not only post more photos myself but also visit my favourite blogs more often !
I look forward to sharing photos with you this year, dear!
