This is my first year end review post. I began the blog in October 2009, and in October 2010, I did a one-year anniversary post. Following that with a year-end wrap-up 2.5 months later seemed a bit self-indulgent. So this year, I’m looking back to the last 15 months since that anniversary post, with a personal favorite from each month. These are not necessarily the ones that garnered the most comments or traffic, nor are they even the ones I deem the best. They are literally my favorites.
Finally, before scrolling down to my favorite 15, you can review [nearly] every image I posted here in 2011 by watching this video, which lasts about 6.5 minutes. I only left out the images from the OBL essays linked above, some photos of garbage that NYC failed to pick up for about a month last winter following a big storm, and two sets of iPhone subway portraits that just would have made the video unbearably long.
Best wishes for 2012 for all of my visitors.
