Sometimes photographers get asked which of their photographs is a personal favorite. That's not always an easy question to answer. It's often hard to pin down a single photograph that stands out above all others. We make thousands of photographs. How can we pick just one?
I cannot choose a single shot as my number one, all-time favorite. Sometimes the making of a shot will take me somewhere I would never have gone before. Or, I will connect with the subject in a special way. I might be in the shadows, unnoticed, and the shot will just "work". So, I have a few favorites. So far.
