Retrospective twenty-three (January 2014)

Given the way in which blogs are presented, I am convinced that posts which reside more than a scroll or two behind the most recent are doomed to languish and to be forgotten. Because I believe there is value in looking at contributions from days, weeks, and even months ago, I present here a gallery of images presented during January of 2014. Perhaps it will be interesting to scroll through these and to compare them to those presented during this past month. Be patient, it may take several minutes for all of the images to load fully. Hovering over an image will reveal its title. Clicking one will take you to a carousel view and you can either move through the collection or click the links to read each post in its original form. Note that this is the twenty-third in my series of retrospective posts. You may find interest in taking a look at the retrospective from two years ago and if you missed any of the others, you can find them all by clicking Retrospective in the tag cloud in the sidebar.

  1. This has been a nice walk down memory lane. Have to say you’re improving with age! Is it your new toys or just skill??!!

    • Photography is like anything else … one does get better with practice. I only wish I had more time to be out with the camera. Haven’t captured an image in more than a week. Feeling pretty sorry for myself.

      • Yeah, this weather has been for the birds. Not much good about it. Traffic, parking, driving have all been dragged out ordeals. I think everyone is writing February off and waiting until March. Sometimes you just have to tread water. Good thing you have your sisters keeping your busy with Shutterfly orders!

  2. I’ve seen quite a few of these before, they are all memorable but if I really had to choose .. I’m torn between that distant row of trees and the spooky interior shot of the camp. A great story prompt there, I think!

  3. I will admit to not scrolling through old posts, so I appreciate your retrospectives. What I also appreciate is that you are a much better photographer than you let on. Good eye for interesting subjects and well composed.

    • Joanna has always observed that my opinions of both myself and my work have never been very good. I won’t disagree. In my opinion all photographers, and especially the ones whose work I much admire, are more capable than I am. So, in that light, I will observe (and probably have before) that your comment is important. Thank you. I will endeavor to continue to work hard at both the technical and the artistic sides of my work.

  4. Time does not play the same role on a blog that it does in our day-to-day lives. When you write you can take some license with the elements in the real world. You can move the pieces around a bit without making us feel uncomfortable.

    • Wow! A new name in my comments section … how wonderful. Thanks BeeHappee for looking around here at Pairodox and for taking the time to say that you liked what you saw. D

  5. What a great idea! I fully agree that older post are still relevant and this is a great way to showcase them! πŸ™‚
