Best Images of 2013

Jim Goldstein of JMG Galleries is holding his Best Photos of the Year blog project for the seventh year in a row.  This is the first time I have heard of this project and was excited to take part.  Anyone can submit their own blog post, so if you have a blog and want to participate, follow the link above to submit your own.

When you shoot approximately once a week for a year (sometimes more!), you end up having a lot of photos sitting on your hard drive!  And with so many photos that have yet to even be processed.  I have been to so many different places in and around Detroit (both abandoned and non-abandoned) it can be difficult to pick what you think are your “best” images.  I gave it a shot, and below are my top 10 (not in any particular order) of what I personally liked of my work in 2013.  And, each of these images are for sale in my online store.

    So nice to see you taking part in Jim’s project Alanna! You certainly worked up a killer set of photographs here. I like how you worked those leaky ceilings to your advantage, and of course I am jealous about the train station – I have always wanted to go in there, but seems I missed the opportunity when it was around. I also like dynamic nature of the pigeon shot with the Simpson’s girl playing music – I think it makes statements about the art in the city, the music – and the changes it will likely see in the next decade. I wish you an inspiring 2014!
