2021: My Favorite Photos

So! I thought it’d be fun to go through my photos this year and pick a favorite from every month. Why? ONE MUST FEED THE CONTENT BEAST, AFTER ALL. Ha ha, not really, this is a blog, nobody reads those anymore. No, I wanted to do it because photography gives me great peace, and delights me. It is a creative outlet that I do not rely upon to live, and I don’t even know that I’m really that good at, but once in a while, I manage to eke out a photo I’m really happy with. So, this is that. The year in images, for me.

A respite from the pandemic.

A refuge from the chaos.

Let’s do it.

January

February

(Sorry, March gets two photos. Because dogs. Dogs are an allowable exception to any rule.)

March

April

May

Oh my god I saw so many birds in May. Spring migration was intense. So, this is a hard one. It’s like, I think I posted three photos in April, but… 30 or so in May. So I’m going to pick three. Because I’m a Cheaty McCheaterson.

Listen, it was really hard to stop there. You can see my other May 2021 photos here. Lotta birds.

LOTTA BIRDS.

June

Yes, I’m cheating again. Shut up. *stares*

Also that seagull will be my first album cover. When I do an album. Of rad Synthwave Bluegrass.

July

We’re all going to casually agree that we won’t talk about how I’ve completely demolished the rules that I set at the fore of this post. Just, uhhh. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. FUCK YOU I WON’T DO WHAT YOU TELL ME I’m sorry that was very rude, Rage Against the Machine just popped out of me, mea culpa

August

I WILL NOT BE CONTAINED

OR CONSTRAINED

AHHHHHH

September

October

November

December

FINE. Whew. There you go.

I tried to keep it to one a month but aaaaaaah yeah that went off the rails pretty quick.

Anyway. Hope your 2022 is filled with interesting images and captivating beauty and at the very least, a shitload of really cool birds and bugs.
