fave photos of 2007
Flickr is looking at 2007 faves.
It was really hard to choose which dimension
- favourite picture?
- technically best?
- best looking?
- hardest get?
I picked my favourite as the single one for the Flickr thread, but since I control the horizontal and the vertical in my blog, I get to show them all
Technically best - I don't have one, I don't know anything about photo technique.
Best looking - probably:
Hardest get - I have been waiting for years to have the combination of the right conditions and actually having a camera at the right time:
I know it doesn't look like much, but those tiles aren't white, they're actually like a gritty jumbled grey-brown concrete. The reason they look white is they're covered with a perfect layer of snow that has fallen in just such as way that it has covered the tops, but fallen into the cracks between them.

You can see all my self-faves at http://www.flickr.com/photos/rakerman/tags/myfaves/
(it actually took me a ridiculously long time to think of using a tag - I kept thinking "I wish I could favourite my own photos").
It was still quite a pain to do this, since Flickr has no slideshow-by-date or archives slideshow.
