Favourite photos of 2014

It’s probably a good thing that I still like most of the photos I picked as my 2013 favourites; there are even some from my 2012 picks that make the cut. :)

Getting out with the Toronto Photo Walks group continues to be fun, although sometimes it’s a challenge to find the time. These shots are from the Old Mill and High Park and Lawrence to Davisville walks respectively.

When we were preparing for the second TOPW group exhibition I found it hard to pick four shots that I wanted to show. I’m happy with the ones I chose but only one was from 2014:

I spent a fun day shooting the Victoria Day SpeedFest Weekend at Mosport Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

I was lucky enough to shoot the Honda Indy Toronto again this year, although I wasn’t as happy with my images as I was in previous years.

If you want to see the monthly round up posts, they’re here: Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec. (I didn’t make a single photo in January because we moved house.)

So that was 2014

As 2014 comes to an end, it’s tradition (OK, a cliché) to write a “review of the year” post, so here it is.

I didn’t write a review post for 2013 because we were so busy packing & moving; in fact I don’t think I posted here for about 2½ months while we were settling in, and I didn’t finish posting my favourite 2013 photos until May after a minor panic when my main storage drives were missing hiding behind a box!

Even if they were a bit delayed at times, I continued my habit of posting monthly photo round-ups:

  1. January – moved house, didn’t take a single photo
  2. February – started a new photoblog called TorontoTuesday.ca
  3. March
  4. April
  5. May – badminton competition and shooting at Mosport
  6. June – Montreal beer festival
  7. July – my 5th year shooting the Honda Indy Toronto
  8. August
  9. September
  10. October – the second TOPW group exhibition
  11. November
  12. December

So what about 2015? As I enter my second year with EPAM, I know work is going to continue to challenge me (in a good way); I hope to shoot the Honda Indy Toronto again this year; I want to play badminton more often (it would be hard for me to play less often!); and I’d really like to see friends and family in England again. Fingers crossed! Of course there’s always the backlog of things that need to get done too, but those are my big goals.

Other than leading a photowalk, it seemed like I barely picked up my camera in December.

November marked the 5th anniversary of Toronto Photo Walks (!!!) and we had a great celebration, but I didn’t take a single photo at the party. All I managed this month was one photo walk and a shot of a heart ornament that I’ve been thinking about taking for months.

October kicked off with the TOPW Nuit Blanche walk; I missed the WorldWide Photo Walk but I led the Lawrence to Davisville walk; and then we had the second TOPW group exhibition, which was fantastic.
