2017 In Photos-Part 1

Well here we are again. Another one of those end of the year summaries. Last week I presented you with some of my favorite music related posts I wrote this year. This time I present some of my favorite photos I took this year. We did not go on any vacations this year so most of these were taken in and around New York City and a few other locations. Despite the lack of destinations, I feel really good about my photography these days and this year in particular. Necessity caused me to get a new camera and together with a new zoom lens I was able to use those new tools and hone my skills. In some ways I think part of my inability to write as many music driven posts here this year has been a result of my growth as a photographer. Next year I hope to balance that equation out but until then, here are the first batch of my favorites. There will be a Part 2 tomorrow. Some of these have been in previous posts, some may be new to those of you who follow me here. Word of advice…open them up full screen and view them large, the way they are meant to be seen. And if you are so willing, please share this if you can to anyone who likes a good photograph of (I hope) interesting subjects. Let me know your favorites in the comments below!

Top Posts Of 2016

As the clock runs down on 2016 I am thankful for another year of being able to share my photographs and writing with you all once again. To date I have written over 30 posts this year alone, as well as  hitting  the milestone of 100 overall posts earlier in the year. Though every time I hit ‘Publish’ on a post it comes with having spent time researching, writing, and choosing photos, there are some that inevitably rise to the top in terms of comments and reactions, not to mention my own enjoyment in writing them. So here are what I consider my top posts of the year, in no particular order.

  1. The Vinyl Edition-Memories of growing up with vinyl records and the recent resurgence of them. I worked with my own local record store in Queens on this one-https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/01/30/soundtrack-of-a-photograph-the-vinyl-edition/
  2. The Story-The final studio album by Scottish group Runrig prompted this post, based around the touching video for the title cut. This album, and this group are both very special-https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/02/13/the-story/
  3. Living Music-A chance encounter at The Noguchi Museum with piano music created from the ‘sound’ of plants led to this post. It is also a reminder of all the discoveries to be made at museums-https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/06/01/living-music/
  4. The Book-This was a short fiction series I wrote after seeing a dedication in an old book. The idea came when I thought about the stories that book might tell as the years went by. https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/06/27/the-book/      https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/07/01/the-book-2/     https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/07/06/the-book-3/
  5. Voices Of The Haudenosaunee-Native American Music and Culture and the beautiful voice of Joanne Shenandoah-https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/08/17/voices-of-the-haudenosaunee/
  6. Irish Noise-Any trip to Ireland means you come back with a lot of photographs, but on my own trip there this summer, I became aware of ‘Irish Noise’. https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/07/27/irish-noise/
  7. Water Is Life-Despite water being such an accessible resource for many of us, it remains a critical issue for many more. Featuring music by the wonderful Touareg group-Tinariwen-https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/09/19/water-is-life/
  8. Self-Portrait-For my third anniversary of blogging, I  wrote a letter to myself celebrating the fact that what I do is art and proudly owning it- https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/10/23/self-portrait-the-third-anniversary-post/
  9. The Queens Curve-My series of Photo Shuffles are meant to be quick and fun little snippets that start by letting my Ipod choose a song randomly for me to write about. None of them have been as fun to write as this one about my home for the past (almost) 2 years-https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/02/20/soundtrack-of-a-photograph-photo-shuffle-12/
  10. Lastly, I have been lucky enough to work with a fabulous New Orleans based photographer twice now. The second one, Two Cities, Two Streets was once again so much fun to be a part of and I am thankful we came across one another. https://robpatdoy.wordpress.com/2016/09/22/two-cities-two-streets/

So there you have it. Not just in terms of numbers, but this has been my best and most satisfying year doing this yet. Whether you are new to my posts or have read them all, I thank you for you taking the time to stop by. Stay tuned next week for my top photos of 2016. I have a lot to choose from so this will be a bit of a challenge!
