I have been participating in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge for some time now, but sadly this challenge is coming to an end. For the last topic, we have been asked to post our all time favourites.
But how many photos to post? We are not told. How can I pick a favourite from all the hundreds of photos I take? I have over 15,000 on my iPad alone – or at least they’re floating around on an iCloud somewhere (I’m still not totally certain of how that cloud thingy works).
So I’m going to limit myself to six photos, then ask you to vote for your favourite, are you up for that?
In no particular order –
No.1. This was taken at sunrise as we were sailing east from the ‘heel’ of Italy over to Corfu, our landfall in Greece after we had left England in our yacht Fandancer several months previously. This photo was also published as a double page spread in a six-page article I wrote for a U.K. Sailing magazine, about our trip.
No.2 This Photo was taken at University of Oxford after my son’s PhD graduation last year. Although I’ve edited it a lot, I like the way the red of his gown is highlighted.
We are off to Greece now, for photo number 3. I bet you guessed I’d have a Greek photo in here somewhere, didn’t you? This was taken in lovely Lakka on the island of Paxos, one of our favourite places. I haven’t edited it, the sea really is that colour!
Photo no.4 – I’ve chosen this because it was my very first attempt at using a zoom lens on my Sony A58 camera, I took this from some distance away! I also like portraits in black and white, and my daughter didn’t know I was taking her photo….
Another Greek photo for No.5 – this sums up everything about Greece! It was taken in the coastal town of Mitikas, on the mainland opposite the island of Kalamos.
Finally, an extremely lucky shot for photo no.6. This was taken very early one morning in the Greek town of Messalonghi, in the Gulf of Corinth. There are some really shallow lagoons here, and there was not a breath of wind…..
So those are my offerings! I’m not clever enough to be able to insert a poll, (unless you can advise me? ), so please tell me which photo you like best in the comments?
