Photo of the Year 2011



The reflection image of Johnny reading at the Hartford Public Library was my personal favorite photograph from 2011.  From the number and strength of comments, it might have been my readers' favorite, too.  It appeared on November 4.

On the first day of each month, City Daily Photo bloggers post photos illustrating a theme.  For January 1, the theme is "Photo of the Year 2011."  Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

I remember this one, fantastic reflections, but with so many interesting little montages, like the group walking under the arbour in the left hand corner, the buildings in the right. Excellent choice for today. I hope you felt better than I did when you woke up this morning Jack!!

Sharon said...

It's a very unusual and clever image. Good choice. I'd be hard-pushed to choose my favourite from my own blog.

JoLynne Lyon said...

Missed it the first time, so I'm glad you re-posted. That's art.

Great choice, this is a very nice photo. Happy New Year.

Lowell said...

I like this, too. And I know how you did it! :-)

Shot 88 today. Going to be very cold for a couple of days but I'll probably play anyway. Starting to hit a bit better - four months from surgery!

How are you hitting 'em?

wheatgerm said...

that is a good photo

Farmchick said...

a superb photo

Bob Crowe said...

Jack, this is bloody brilliant. Did you assemble this from several photos or is there a painted wall in the background and a pool or polished table in the foreground? A picture of the year to be proud of.

Louis la Vache said...

That IS a neat photo, Jack!


«Louis» wishes you a Happy New Year!.

Malyss said...

That's true, this picture is not only beautyful, but also strange, and unusual. A very good choice, and a perfect shot to enter this new Year!

I thought the picture was a collage of different shots when I looked at it, a mix of your favorite shots from the year. Then I clicked the link and saw it was one picture posted. That is a really interesting shot, so much to take in.
Happy New Year to you Jack! Thank you for sharing your pictures with us...as this photo represents, you take some amazing shots!

Halcyon said...

I don't remember this one, but I'm loving it!

Hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season. All my best to you in 2012!

Oakland Daily Photo said...

This photo definitely deserves to be revisited. I wonder if Johnny knows he's a star in the CDP world?

Nathalie said...

An absolutely STUNNING shot - I'm so glad you reposted it, I had missed it back in November. Happy new year to you and keep'em coming!

Yup. I'd choose this one. EXTREME photography, this.
