These are 100 of my favorite personal photos that I took in 2023. They are in no order whatsoever. As I’ve done with my past two yearly reviews, I’ve numbered each image so that on the off-chance anyone is interested in learning more about a particular photo, it’s easy to reference back to those images.
When I put these posts together it’s all too easy for me to look at the images and think about all of the ways I may have fallen short of the previous years goals. I didn’t photograph as many people as I would have liked. I didn’t go to as many places as I would have liked. This year was more of a struggle to get to 100 versus the past year. Maybe I didn’t break any new ground, but there were some positives. There is a photo in here that my subject told me was the best photo ever taken of them. There really is no better feeling to me than hearing that. I documented the places I did go. I still got out of the house with the intent of just creating something for myself. And when you’ve been relying on photography to pay your bills as long as I have, it does say something to me that my photography is still just as much for myself as it is for others.
