Lens artist’s Photo Challenge #77: Favourite photos of 2019

Here goes

Firstly, Street and a silhouette:

Next, an interesting view with a tiny, lone figure:

And now for an image the like s of which I have been trying to capture for a while…. object with raindrops highlighted around it

I visited the ruins of St Dunstan in the East in the middle of the year, and had intended to be back…hasn’t happened yet, though.  I thought this epitomised the place – ruins surrounded by foliage, and people taking a break there at lunchtime:

Next, we have some lovely afternoon light spilling into a shop at a garden

The following image worked because I was able to create a Still Life with a limited colour palette and some nice bokeh to isolate the subject:

This next one I like because of the small, silhouetted figures looking a tad mechanistic, geometrically placed

Next, a Street image with limited colour palette (shame about the green bin):

Here I loved the light behind the petals, and it gave me a minimalist image:

Next, we have light and shadows with Silhouette figures, something I try to achieve whenever I’m ina place with good sunlight

And lastly some golden autumn light through the window

  1. Absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Very nice variety. There are some beautiful slices of life in here. And some beautiful still life.

  3. Oh Sue, you pick of photos for this year are simply superb 😀

  4. As a newish follower, I’ve not seen any of these before! Wonderful! I like St Dunstan the best. The place looks beautiful and like the intimacy you’ve caught between the two people. Whether it’s romantic intimacy or friendship I don’t know, but they look relaxed together.

  5. Sue, I don’t remember any of these but they’re all wonderful. Thanks for sharing them.


  6. They couldn’t be more different but I really like the second image (where is it?) and St. Dunstan. (looks romantic to me 🙂 ) Some cracking shots, Sue!

  7. A nice eclectic mix: and I enjoyed your commentary too.

  8. A great gallery for 2019 Sue 🙂 My favourite, hard to pick but without the green bin probably. or maybe St Dunstans or…………

  9. I liked two of these the best, probably because they solicited narratives in my mind: the Dunstan picnic and the people passing across the plaza with another standing still.

  10. I haven’t seen all of these, love #2,4,5,6 and 10. The camera is my favourite. A good mix of photos Su.

  11. I especially liked the images with people in them Sue. They’re not the main subject but definitely add to the images they’re in. And the raindrops image is really stunning. Beautifully done. And happy new year to you!

      Thank you, Tina! When I first started taking photographs, I avoided people, but now I know the ‘right’ person can add to an image!! Happy New Year to you and yours!

  12. A great St Dunstan image, Sue. Probably my favourite, though I like them all. The last one is intriguing, with a great link between inside and outside with the leaves on the curtain.

  13. Beautiful…my favorite is the flower with the raindrops.

  14. I love your silhouettes here, Sue. I hope you go back to St. Dunstan’s. That’s my favorite shot. Great atmosphere. All the best to you in 2020!

  15. Wow. Very well done. Excellent eye for subjects, excellent captures of them. Best wishes for 2020.

  16. The hat on the table was one of my favourites of the year. Great selection, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  17. I must say…I cannot choose a favorite among these shining stars, Sue. A superb collection, varied and well thought through. I love them all – but maybe my heart belongs to St. Dunstan’s, or the flowers with raindrop background, or the garden shop, or the autumn light seeping in…I hope you go back to St. Dunstan´s this spring or summer! All the best for the new year! ♥
