BPR Top Twenty-Five Pics of 2012

Well, this is a revival of a tradition I thought I was starting in 2009: an end of the year review of my favorite photos. It was never intended as a “best of”, because that would be too hard, and too focused I think on the technical aspects of a given photo. Which is still accounted for here, but what these really are represent my favorite photos. On some level these pics meant something a little “more” to me in some way. But I also have to recognize the need to include some outliers for “balance” so that the pics aren’t so lopsided as far as being all models, or all live shots, etc. (I also just realized I’ve omitted all my food photography, but as those were for commercial purposes I guess they don’t merit the same consideration as the more “art-driven” pics do. It’s also omitted most family portraits.)

As I mentioned, I did a Top Ten of 2009, but as I reviewed the pics for 2012 I realized there was just too much for me to choose from that stood out. I was originally just going to do a separate “Honorable Mention”—and I’ll still do that—but I decided to consider expanding it to a Top Twenty, and finally a Top 25. If I went back and reviewed pics again, I don’t doubt I could identify a few dozen other worthy pics, but I figure what I chose in my initial reviews comprise the cream of the crop. I’ll try to include a caption/description of each pic, though some will be more enlightening than others. Some comments may even be as mundane as, “Yeah, this one is pretty cool.” We’ll see…
