Hi all, been some time since I posted. Last year I created a thread asking you all to choose a selection of your own photos, up to a maximum of three, that define the year in photography for you, whether it be an important event, a split-second shot or just a nice capture that you're proud of. So here I am again, nearly at the closing of 2014. I'll start with a few of my own... Squirrel by Ben Grady, on Flickr I chose this shot just because it reminds me of how much I love photography. I'm finding as I try and focus on building my film career that I have less attention for creative relaxation. This shot was taken when I was in London and had a while to wait for a train, and so I wandered around the area and eventually stumbled upon this creature, who was kind enough to pose for me. It was a nice feeling to just aimlessly wander and shoot something for no purpose other than creating something. 06-Aug-2014-40 by Ben Grady, on Flickr This next one is both special and not special. It's not a particularly fancy photo, and bears little meaning, but it has a sentimental side. This was taken on a trip to the seaside seeing some family, and I took a moment to stand in the sand, looking out to the water in blistering winds and a mist that clouded up my lenses as soon as I faced south-east. Next year I'll be moving to University, and so at this moment I took a while to think about all the changes facing me, so it was a strange moment. pano by Ben Grady, on Flickr This final image was taken on the same trip as the previous on the last day. The church in the town was on a steep elevation and so I could get a great view of the river from above. There was no one around to interrupt my thinking, and so I stood alone next to the gravestones for a good hour, getting some decent shots of the architecture, waiting for the sun to fall, and thankfully it did with some splendour. All the time it was practically silent around me, and the lack of company made it particularly poignant, staring out into the wilderness as the sun set for another day. So there you have it, my three photos for this year with a lot of sentimentality attached. I look forward to seeing yours!
