Best of 2009

Jim Goldstein, noted photographer, has a blog project to display "Best of 2009" work by all photographers that wish to submit a link.

It is inspirational and nourishing to see the breadth and quality of work that is being done all around the world.

The list can be found here http://www.jmg-galleries.com/blog/2010/01/12/best-photos-of-2009-by-jmg-galleries-blog-reader’s/.

2009 was a disjointed and uncomfortable year for me and I guess it may show in my edit of my best photos of the year. The link to my selection is below and can also be found on Jim Goldstein's list.

Autumn in the woods can be fairytale; a place of mystery and majicks.

There is a deep and primeval kinship with the forest for me, and I assume for other people too. It can be a place of tangible silences, unexpected movement and never ending recycling life. I find all of that comforting. Autumn is a season of richness, colour and earthy spices, the year's face being shed.

Capturing that richness in all its detail and scope can be difficult in one image, but it I find it important to try.

Getting a result I like

For the first time in a long, long while, a picture that I have taken that I find no fault with, self-critic that I am.

Scene from the ruins of St Dunstan in the East church, London, bombed in WWII now an award winning public space.

Artistic challenge - stretch your artistic hamstrings

I am a great believer that when you become familiar with something your brain switches off and you cease to see details. In terms of photography that can mean you can miss something beautiful or extraordinary.

There is a great example of this, here in a blog post by a great photographer Jim M. Goldstein
