Every year at
Jim Goldsteain invites his readers to his blog project.
… to list the years best photos from my readers and social media followers. I’ve run this blog project every year since 2007 and each year I’ve been blown away by the quality of images and the number of participants. This year I will be collecting participants details via this form. If you’re a new participant you can see
past years results.
Here are my favourite images from 2017. I wanted to narrow these down to 10 but … I just couldn’t. All of these images have special significance for me. They are not technically great images but they are the ones with the most emotional impact.

[exif id=”34342″] Latin Lessons. Kiran loves reading. Here face is almost always burried in a book. This is one of those rare occasion I get to capture here face.
[exif id=”34354″] Brick Farm Market. Kiran and I discovered we both preferred the cheese and deli meat from the market. We would go and pickup our favorites and head home to make sandwiches together.
[exif id=”34353″] October morning walk on Blue Spring Road. The best camera is the one you have with you. I had my iPhone 7.

[exif id=”34346″] Looking down from Goat Hill before the Lamberville and New Hope fireworks. I had wanted to shoot from this vantage point for years but was loath to venture out into this area in the dark by myself. The walk us is easy. The walk down in total darkness is not. The opportunity finally arrived via a photography meetup group.

[exif id=”34344″] In the spring, I was in the Latimore Valley Fairgrounds with some friends for the Jalopy Showdown. We watched as these cars (and motorbikes) raced aroud the restored fairgrounds and race track dating back to the 1920\’s.
[exif id=”34343″] Bhavna posing for me at the Rock Brook. We were spending a lot of time walking along the paths in the Sourland Mountain Preserve, talking and enjoying the outdoors. I used the Brenziner technique to create this image.
