The most recent one that I have come across is on the blog Photo Freak and this one had a pretty broad topic.."best photo that you have ever taken." I mean, come on! How daunting is that?! I can't even begin to fathom how many photographs I have taken in my lifetime..and I am supposed to pick just one that I feel is my personal best?! Well, I did. I think. This one might look familiar..I just posted here about it the other day but I actually played around with it since then and created a nice vignette on it now. I do love this picture.
I took this particular photograph when I was a fresh-faced, newly graduated, single young woman. I had just moved to Brooklyn from North Carolina and New York City was my playground. I had no money and not very many friends so I would spend hours just wandering around the City with my camera. Hours upon hours. All by myself, just me and my Nikon. It was pretty awesome for the most part.I think I love this photograph not only for the beauty of the one lone bird in flight (I have a thing for birds..I love photographing them)but also for the memories that it embodies for me. New York will always hold a special spot in my heart ultimately because that is where I met my husband..the City is where we fell in love.
This photograph, Bird in Flight, is circa 2005.
P.S. Bird in Flight can also be found here :)
