Best Photo Of 2021

2021 was similar to 2020, photography-wise, in that I took my camera everywhere and took very few pictures.  The saving grace this year was that we did go on a roadtrip to the southeastern USA which gave me many opportunities to take good pictures.

The number of pictures I uploaded to Google photos - where I post my best photos - was probably the fewest I've ever posted in a year.  Many of the pictures were mediocre at best as I felt uninspired.  I wonder what I could have captured if the world hadn't felt so dark and bleak last year.

There were a few pictures that I took on our summer southeast roadtrip that I liked.  They were taken at Montgomery, Alabama's National Memorial for Peace and Justice, a somber place often referred to as the Lynching Memorial.  The coffin-like hanging metal boxes are both emotionally stirring and hauntingly photogenic.  Here is my favorite photo of the memorial and of the year:

I hope you all had a happy and safe New Year's Eve.  Looking forward I am not optimistic about the new year.  There are so many good things happening this year but there is also a lot of potential for bad things.  Let's hope that the good outweighs the bad this year.  That's all we can ask for.
