Favorite Photos – December

Favorite Photos, December. Click for a larger version.

Here are my favorite photos for the month of December. The story behind this “favorite photos by date” project is here.

Most of the December photos are portraits. I don’t do much nature photography in December. The pretty autumn leaves are gone and most years the pretty winter snows have not yet arrived. So I take pictures of family and friends, a few models, and our dog Sunny shows up several times. Despite over 3400 images in my “favorite photos” folder, there were four days in November for which I did not have a single photo to post. The same will be true for the winter months which follow. Winter is just not my favorite photography season. But there were five days for which I picked two first place favorite photos for the same date. As usually, there are some days that have a second, third, or even fourth place photo.
