With the year rapidly drawing to a close, it’s time once again to look back over the last 12 months and pick out my favourite photographs.
On so many levels, 2016 has been an absolute shocker, but personally at least it has been one to remember. It started out just like the previous year ended — full of fear and uncertainty. But all that changed in July, when my wife got the all clear after her tough, incredibly brave fight with breast cancer. A result that still sometimes feels like a dream, and what came before it nothing short of a nightmare.
Through both the good and bad, however, the one constant has been photography. Being out with a camera made the tough times more bearable, and the happy ones even better. And below are the results of those excursions. Some have been chosen for the memories — others purely because of what came out of the camera. They aren’t in chronological order. Just how I feel they work best. Plus as usual, clicking on any of the photos will bring up a bigger, sharper version.
A set that neatly wraps up Tokyo Times for the year. So until early January, when the usual posts will resume as normal, Happy New Year and all the very best for 2017!
