12 months + 12 photos = A Year of Fun

The Space Needle looms over daffodils at the Seattle Center in downtown Seattle, Wash.

Well, another year rolled into the grave of history.

Another year of shooting, editing, traveling, and frustration.

Marcus Fire plays the didjiridoo at Pike's Place Market in downtown Seattle, Wash.

All this and I have to pick 12 of my favorite photos of the year.

Sunsets, chess players, beaches, and a bizarre Christmas eve experience.

So without any further ado, I now share my gems, or lumps of coal, with you.

Well, I said 12m but it was harder to edit than I anticipated. Oh well, thanks for viewing.


  1. A really nice selection Paul, beautiful work. I tried to pick my favourite but I cannot, so I can see why the task was difficult for you to choose yours. It would be between the portrait of your nephew, smith tower, and snohomish. Congrats on a great year!


  2. Wonderful collection, Paul. I particularly like the simplicity of pattern in the “Floats”, the emphasis of diagonals in the “Identity Sculpture”, the emotion conveyed in the “homeless man”, and the delicacy of the dew on the spider web.

    I’ll look forward to future posts.
