2018 Photos of the Year

It's time to review our year's work and pick a favorite. Being greedy, I can't limit myself to just one. There could be lots more but these are my besties. People notice that I shy away from pretty pictures. There are some in my portfolio but what interests me is the ironic, the street, the theater and personalities. So...

TIE FOR FIRST PLACE 


         
Night walk in a forest near Monteverde, Costa Rica. How the guide found this tiny lizard I cannot say. Lit by only a flashlight.



A scene from a play called Pain during the St. Louis Fringe Festival . Actually, this is my favorite but I thought it would put people off if I placed it first.



THIRD PLACE


Fourth of July fireworks at the Arch.


ELLIE 


Utter concentration while building a Lego tower. At the Magic House, our area's children's science museum.


STL LOCAL


Autumn in Forest Park. Okay, I guess this qualifies as a pretty picture.



BEST ARCH PICTURE



First published just a few fays ago.



THEATER


The irrepressible Lola van Ella at the St. Louis Fringe's fundraiser Act Your Pants Off.


TRAVEL


Specials at Ricky's Cafe, Hanover, Kansas.



Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, taken from the north shore of the bay.



Part of The  Heidelberg Project, Detroit. Look it up!


A happy new year and good shooting to all our City Daily Photo colleagues. Take a look at of our members' best work here. It's starting to go up.

The fireworks shot is my favourite.

I do like the tiny lizard. I'm amazed it didn't escape the hand before you could shoot. My second favorite was Ellie's construction project and her face as she built. Happy New Year!

It is a wonderful collection, Bob. The special ones for me are the blue man, the fireworks behind the arch and Ellie.
