Such a striking image, where in West Texas was it taken?

ADORE these 2 portraits

[quote=sailor;2932135]This is a photo of Boris, a Jack Russell terrier belonging to our German friend Waltraud who has lived in Scotland for many years. I printed a copy of this and framed it up as a surprise Christmas present for Waltraud. Sadly, a couple of days before Christmas, Boris collapsed after his usual morning walk. He was rushed to the vet but nothing could be done and he was put to sleep. I worried what Waltraud's reaction would

She phoned to say that many tears had been shed but it was the best Christmas present she could have received as it beautifully captured Boris's personality. For this reason it is my favourite photo of 2019.

I've always liked outdoor portraits but I especially like this one, taken in Chiang Mai last month (November), because she was such an interesting subject. I used this photo to start a W/NW thread a few weeks ago.

This is probably my favorite....


...due to being a twist on one of my all time favorites from 8 years ago.



Also interesting to think about the changes between the two shots. Top was A7RII w/ 50mm 0.95 Canon Dream lens using flash as fill, bottom was D700 w/ 500mm F4P natural lighting.

This is in relation to something I had been missing for a long time since moving into a second floor apartment. I lacked having a little piece of ground to plant on, so I moved the ground to my balcony.

It was just so satisfying to go out in the morning and evening to water the plants, check on their progress, and harvest the ready fruits. And to get this image of my future salad fixings.

It is very difficult to pick "a favorite", but I will go with this one. I was shooting B&W during the super-bloom event in Southern California, and captured this while exploring some flower colored hills.

I saw these two approach and took a couple of shots, but this shot after I passed them worked best. They had seemed an unusual pairing, the one so measured and controlled, revealing more in the hands behind her back, and from behind their union made more sense, the stripes, the lock-step. I had a 28mm lens and had to include the feet of course. It was taken without framing, from chest height. It has the indispensable element of luck but I think I did enough to earn it.

Tbh, I didn't take a lot of photos this year.
Having said that, I just sent a roll to dev and have 2 more rolls (nearly done!) to send for dev too.

but for now, only this. It was in London.

Moments of human connection are among my favorite subjects in photography.

I normally wouldn't intrude, but I was on upper deck of the train wanting to try the 50mm mode on the GR III, and there they were.

because it was nice day,

because it was shot with my "brand new" M3

I've always wanted to try star trails on film, but as a suburbanite, I don't often get shooting opportunities with dark night skies. Past attempts were unsuccessful or thwarted because they coincided with the wrong moon phase. This year, the stars finally aligned (pun intended), and I was able to capture this shot on a birthday backpacking trip to Yosemite. I set up the shot before it got dark, and enjoyed a nice beer by the campfire with my good friend during this 90 minute exposure. Hard to pick a favorite, but this was definitely one of the more satisfying results of the year.

There's really a lot of excellent work here. I had a good year photographically. Got 6 "keepers." For me a keeper is something I'm willing to frame after I print it. 6 is a lot for me.

I like the way the rear window and light look OOF.

Happy New Years All!

This has to be my favourite photo of 2019. It's a picture of my wife looking happy, in a cafe next to the ocean close to where we live. It's a very special photo because of what has come before it, and where we are now.

Nearly eleven years ago we experienced a life-transforming event. Our two daughters, then aged 10 and 13 became very ill following an infection. The symptoms were complex but one primary factor was severe, often acute, pain. Neurological problems are another. There are more. Until then they had lived a normal childhood.

Over the years their condition has gradually deteriorated, despite the best efforts of medical professionals, who remain unable to make a definitive diagnosis of cause or conditions. As their care needs increased my wife found it necessary to leave her academic studies - she was obtaining qualifications to become a clinical psychologist - and I had to leave my career of over 30 years, in order to care for them. We now care for them in overlapping shifts 24/7.

Not all days are bad. Sometimes one daughter or the other is well enough to get out of the house with us for short excursions to the shops or a cafe. Perhaps once every two weeks my eldest is able to ride her beloved motorcycle. Often she will ring me to collect her because she is in too much pain to ride the bike home, even if only 10 minutes away.

Both girls were too ill to finish high school. Prior to their illness both were academically bright students. They had high ambitions. Both now suffer memory and learning problems to the extent that it is unlikely they will be able to study again. Of course, we live in hope. But our hearts are filled with sadness. Our daughters missed out on a normal school experience and adolescence, and now they are missing out on life itself.

We are both emotionally and physically exhausted but my wife much more so than me, as she is the one our girls call out for in the night to comfort them and help manage their pain.

There have been no holidays or weekends off these past 10 years. Our only respite together is a short break at one of the local cafes once a day, where we can relax over a coffee for a quarter hour or so. Weather permitting we ride my Vespa, which gives a feeling of freedom.

This picture was taken at the Bower cafe at Manly beach, less than 10 minutes from our house. It's a special place right on the water front. There are usually people and dogs and children everywhere and it's a happy place to be.

It is not often that I see a real, relaxed happy smile on my wife, so this is a picture I treasure.

Lynn - thank you for sharing that, I can hardly begin to imagine what you have and continue to experience and I weep for your daughters and their loss. Thank you so much for continuing to share your photos and experiences of the world through your lens. When I see your photos from Manly I think of the carefree existence in the sun, and that I love. My best wishes, for the meagre amount they are worth.

2019 was a satisfying year for me, photographically. My interests are moving more in the direction of landscape photography, and I was able to make repeat visits to areas along the California coast and the coast range south of San Francisco, from Half Moon Bay down to Point Lobos.

Yet my favorite photo of 2019 was a photo of a mother an daughter sharing a quiet moment in Lithia Park in Ashland, Oregon, listening to a man play the cello. I sat down on the bench next to where they were sitting, listened to the cellist, and waited. I think I caught a tender moment. I also like this photo because I was using a Zeiss Sonnar lens from 1943 that was once owned by another member here, LeicaTom. Maybe there was some good karma there...

Lynn,

That is a wonderful photograph of your wife made even more wonderful by the back story. I had no idea you and your wife were dealing with such hardships. I've always admired your photography, but I see it in a different light now...

Best to you in 2020.

Steve

Hard to pick just one, but here goes my favourite from 2019.
I think it's my favourite because it came out as I envisioned and it's aligned with the style I've been looking for during the last months, plus I got lucky to stumble upon the right scene.
Hope you all the best for this new year.

Love it volts!

My favourite is my Dartmoor ponies. I stopped for a short walk to finish off a reel of film, clocked a black pony reflected in a pond, but as I got closer this lighter pony trotted up, no doubt for a treat. The black one then started nipping at its heels, finally giving a sharp nip to the neck, prompting the other to flare nostrils and eyes to pop as I hit the shutter.

SUCH A TOUGH QUESTION.

After much thought I think I have to go with this one. I got into a habit of photographing my wife sporadically in the nice morning light, on both film in digital, throughout the years.

One day, months after this was taken I found a roll of undeveloped film at the bottom of my film box. I processed it and out came this photo and a handful of others. It dawned on me only after processing that this photo was taken as she got ready for work the morning my wife's water broke. She called me only hours later , while at work, to tell me the news. The next day we met out first child.

What a feeling it was to see this surprise run across my fingers slicked with foto-flo while I held the roll to the light. There may have been better "moments" captured throughout the year but this one brought back great feeling. Great feeling of why I love shooting film, the surprises that may come from a roll of undeveloped film. And especially feeling of that day in which our lives changed forever.
