My Best Images From 2018

Every year at Jim Goldstein invites his readers to his blog project. This is my third time participating in his project.

I’m proud to say over the years that hundreds of photographers have taken part (see Best Photos of 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007). It’s great to see the community of photographers that have developed around this blog project.

Brent Huntley runs Photography and Travel and for the first time this year, I will be submitting to his project.

I was more organized this year, but due to a job change, the breakage of my camera, and a new challenging chronic illness. I was not with a camera as often as I wanted. But this summer I finally replaced my broken Nikon and decided to jump to the Fujifilm X interchangeable lens camera system.

Some of the images are from my iPhone, a Canon 5D Mk III that I borrowed from a friend until I made my buying decision, and from my Fujifilm X-T2.

Bhavna and I realized that our kids are older (the last one turned 18 last month) and don’t need us to be just a few minutes from home. I convinced her to do something we both wanted to do, take a hot-air balloon ride. Many of the images are from the Finger Lakes area of New York.
