I uploaded just over 1,400 photos to flickr this year, nearly doubling my online archive. 2009 might have been a lousy year, but I made some significant strides in my photography. Below are my favorite shots from each month:
January (15 photos)
I took this photo at a Martin Luther King Jr. rally the day before President Obama’s inauguration for the San Mateo Daily Journal. There are all sorts of technical issues with this shot, but the SM Daily Journal ran it on their front page the next day. It’s always cool to see your photos in print.
February (19 photos)
This dog was too photogenic to pass up. Kind of a weak month for me photography-wise.
March (267 photos)
Took this in Clarion Alley as part of a San Francisco street art project. Love the greens.
April (76 photos)
Captured this diptych in downtown Palo Alto.
May (155 photos)
Of all my photos taken around Islais Creek, this tops the list. The original was too flat, so I converted it to monochrome and upped the contrast.
June (106 photos)
Joe Mauer doing what he does best. Twins beat the A’s 10-5.
July (265 photos)
A simple abstract taken in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco.
August (66 photos)
A throwaway shot at first glance, I did some heavy processing in photoshop to bring out the contrast.
September (113 photos)
One of the first shots with my new 5D Mark II. 13 seconds at f/9.0 just after sunset near the summit of Windy Hill.
October (136 photos)
The Marin Headlands were overrun by tourists as the sun set, but I managed to work them into the landscape.
November (134 photos)
One of my best from the Drawbridge series.
December (39 photos)
My favorite from a portrait assignment for a local construction management firm.
My New Year’s Resolution for 2010: take more photos of people.
