A Few of My Favorite Things

“Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.”

– Imogen Cunningham

I agree with Cunningham – there’s something so satisfying about making a new photo. I fall in love again every time I make one that causes my heart to race. But that doesn’t mean I don’t play favorites with my others. This collection is a few of my favorites.

I’ve been fascinated with the bark on a holly tree in a nearby park since I started photographing it in the summer. The itch to get out there and shoot some more was too great, and yesterday I went back — in 32 degree temps! I really like the one below. I’m also experimenting with some new photo sizes. This will be printed 10″ x 20″.
