You may be proud on such a collection of clearly great shots. Hope to get the same in 2017.

I love the way you picked categories. Was glad to see the arch, too.

Happy New Year 2017!

Happy new year Bob.. this is a fine selection of images you have picked here. I have to admit I'm the same, hard to choose 😊 Gosh little Audrey is growing up, she's adorable!

Sharon Anck said...

These are all so good I can see why it would be tough to choose. I think the fringe festival one is my favorite. It's stunning. Happy New Year!

Thanks so much Bob for giving us more than one photo, you had so many good ones again this year. That gave me a chance to see some I missed, and there are some spectacular ones. I particularly fell for the Audrey and Andy pool shot (she's adorable!) and for the Arch shot with levee and Eads Bridge (gosh, you've done it again, this is a spectacular addition to your Arch collection!)- and also your best performance photo with balloons.
I wish you happy shooting in 2017 and a joyous and healthy year for the whole family!

Nice collection, Bob. Quite varied. Maybe the Amsterdam violent and the ballon dancer win the 2016 Bob award from me.

Nice collection you have there Bob. I like how you categorized them, very creative!

Kay said...

Bravo! A beautiful selection of shots. I especially like your black and whites and would never have thought to look at a Chihuly that way.

Jim said...

Great collection.

Your selection is marvellous.
The most I like is: Chihuly and Seattle, desaturated and Levee, Eads Bridge and Arch.
Happy New Year.
