A Good Crop

“ Twelve significant photographs
in any one year is a good crop.”

~Ansel Adams

 

If even Ansel Adams, one of the masters of photography, didn’t expect to get any more than 12 great photographs in a year. How could I expect to accomplish even half of that!?

I took a quick look through a few photos from each month of 2015 just to see if could come up with my own “good crop”. While they may not have any real significance they have all been a significant part of my life over the last 12 months.

So here ya go… my good crop, 2015 re-lived.
