Thematic Photographic - Favorite Photos of the Year

Carmi, at Written, Inc., posts a weekly photographic challenge, based on a theme. But this time, it's different. To wrap up the year, Carmi urges us to post our FAVORITE PHOTOS OF THE YEAR. The challenge goes on through January 6, 2011. Go visit Carmi's site and see who else shares favorite photos.

The ever-changing, elusive colors of the sky are a constant fascination for me as a photographer, and even though I never seem to catch the exact views I see, sometimes a shot turns out nicer than I would have hoped.

This is a wintery evening shop of the Santa Monica Pier, seen from the window of a building up on Ocean Avenue. I had to peek under the palm frond to see the marvelous dome of the carousel, and the illuminated ferris wheel.

It's very Southern California in feeling, don't you think?

Framing a picture with a palm frond is indeed very SoCal!

Oh, we use palm fronds to frame pictures in Ohio all the time!

I like the illuminated red awnings in the foreground.
