Below are the 10 images I selected for this years Essence Of Bellingham Contest. This will by my fourth year submitting. I don't enter to win. I just participate to play. I enjoy the process of sorting images to submit simply to take a look at a year gone by from a specific perspective.
The images below are the rest of what made the "final" folder. I actually had way more. way too many to choose from beyond these image files. Which makes it a challenge to choose. As I say in my bio, I take WAY too may photographs! What has me pick my top ten is usually what I always come back to. The ones I like in my gut.
Photography = a never ending opportunity to capture visual celebrations.
