My 2014 Top Ten Photographs

My friend and fellow Arcanum apprentice Nick Nieto pointed out Martin Bailey's weblog post about how and why to choose one's top ten photographs of the year. I'm sure I would have eventually found Martin's post anyway, as I really enjoy Martin's weblog and podcast, but I'm grateful to Nick for helping me find it sooner.

At first I didn't think too much about it, but then I looked at Nick's images and listened to Martin's podcast, and I was inspired. So this evening I followed (for the most part) Martin's prescription and came up with my top ten. I'm not sure these are my absolute favorites for the year, but each has a reason for being included.

So without further ado, here are my top ten photographs for 2014...
