This is one of the tougher categories to choose from: People in Places. The criteria is simple: spontaneous moments where a person and their emotions are also an expression of their setting. Picking my top 6…not so simple. These are probably my most visible images…ones on prominent rotation on my home page and on PhotoShelter. What can I say: a lot of rich moments from the year.
I highly recommend clicking on each photo to see them larger, especially the first one. As always, your feedback in the comments box about your selection would be much appreciated.
