My photography mentoring group ends each year with an assignment I truly enjoy. The aim is to curate our favorite images and reflect on personal growth throughout the year, helping us prepare for the opportunities and challenges the new year may bring. Here are a few of the images that I thought I'd share.
2023 - A Great Year of Travel & Learning
Closing the chapter on this year's photographic journey fills me with gratitude for the moments captured and lessons learned. I've ventured into adventures beyond my wildest dreams, from the Moroccan desert to kayaking in southern swamps. These weren't on my bucket list, but that's what made those moments uniquely special. While gaining new skills on my travels, my goal is to continually evolve and become more creative in my approach to the art. Each click is a step forward, a brushstroke on the canvas of my photographic journey.
My photos are more than mere images; they are fragments of time reflecting the richness of my travels. This year took me to diverse places, with the Camargue horses stealing the spotlight through my lens. Each location presented a unique set of challenges and opportunities, contributing to my growth and the creation of better images.
As I look ahead, I am excited about the possibilities that the new year holds and untold stories awaiting discovery. Ready for new challenges, I’ll continue to create new art from behind my lens. My first adventure of the year awaits in January with a trip south, where the prospect of warmer weather is a welcome choice. The destination: Colombia, South America. I’m told that there is a plethora of opportunities for amazing photos there. Here's to another exciting year of exploring!
