I have no particular favourite photos of 2020. They are all my favourites. Each month I choose a selection of photos that represent the main themes of my month and, as is often the case, many favourite-ish photos don’t make the cut. For the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Favorite Images of 2020, I’ve chosen a couple of those that didn’t fit my monthly narrative and two I published earlier this year. I wouldn’t exactly call them favourites but for personal reasons, they are ones I really like.
First, here are the previously unpublished photos.
Last spring, I finally found where the RAW format option was hidden on my camera and I began experimenting. I enjoyed this experiment as it was a good distraction from the seemingly endless bad news. I’m not sure I will continue the experiment because my computer is too old to process the data-hungry RAW files, but it was fun and slightly addictive moving those little sliders in the trial software up and down.
In February at the start of the first Covid wave in Australia, I had eye surgery followed by an unpleasant, unknown virus. My recovery was long and exhausting. The exhaustion is ongoing, perhaps for other reasons. During April I managed to haul myself to the other side of my suburb and I took the following photo. To me it sort of symbolises an uphill battle but one with the possibility of future adventures. I’m still waiting for those adventures. I probably need to give myself another kick up the backside to get moving again. It is also a bit arty-farty so that is another reason I like this photo.
I’m currently on hols with my True Love. Once we get tired of sleeping and staring at the ceiling, we might go out galavanting on some mini adventures, taking photos and/or sitting and staring at the trees instead.
Take care, everyone.
