As is my ritual I’ve compiled my best photos of the year. Similar to last year much of my efforts have been focused on stoking my 5 year old son’s curiosity about nature. It would be very easy to focus on my photography, but the reason I pursue outdoor photography is because of my deep appreciation for it. I’d like to pass that on to both my boys and with that in mind most of my outings this year were to share the experience exclusively with my son rather than my camera. That said unlike last year my best photos are not Instagram photos (jimgoldstein), but a mixture of DSLR and medium format film via a newly acquired Fuji GX617. Having taken a hiatus from film photography for over 10 years it’s been a great challenge to rexperience the joy and pain of it as I’ve begun sharing in a shot series Revising Film Photography.
To this years best photos in no particular order…
An honorable mention…
My youngest son now has a matching photo to his older brother featured in my Best of 2011 photos.
Great set of images Jim, love the one of B in the balls 🙂
Looks like a wonderful year Jim! The lesson being…don’t mess with you’re boys and their birthday cake. 🙂
Love your goal of sharing nature with your sons Jim – all the best to you and yours for 2016. Glad to have found you!
That is a great collection of images Jim! Exposing your boys to nature is an effort that should pay dividends for decades to come!
Beautiful work as always, Jim! And it’s so great to hear that you are making such an effort to connect your children with nature. It really should be an essential component of everyone’s childhood. All the best for 2016!
A nice selection, especially the landscape’s pictures.
All the best for 2016.
Fantastic collection again, Jim! That for curating the “best of” list again too – loads of great links there again this year.

Thanks! I really enjoyed your photos this year. Great to see how the kids are getting bigger.
Thanks Suzy and thanks for taking part this year. I know how hard it is to get in the zone with a newborn/infant in the house. BTW she looks super cute.
Great collection this year Jim, and a wonderful reminder to grumpy old guys like me who probably didn’t take ten frames with people in them all year, of what photography is primarily about for most of the population!
Also, thank you for doing the “Best of…” round-up again this year. Much appreciated.
