2015 in images

» Posted by on Feb 23, 2016 in Ethiopia, Featured, France, Istanbul, Japan, Nice, Portfolio, San Francisco, volcano

Last year was not my most productive year as a photographer. I still took over 20000 images but it’s half what I did in 2014. And it’s not because I have not traveled abroad (I went to Ethiopia, Japan, France and Turkey) but I did not go out locally as much as I usually do. My day job kept me busy and I did not have much spare time. Even this blog is suffering from my lack of free time.

Finally at the end of February, I was able to compile my best images for 2015. Better late than never is one my motto in life. Interestingly enough, there is a theme that is emerging from my images, I love cityscape (my top 4 images are Tokyo, San Francisco, Nice and San Francisco again). I love man-made structures, you have to go to my volcano image to find a purely landscape image. And I’m warming up to ┬áblack and white images too. Two black and white images are in my top ten, a first.
