To everyone in the Northern Hemisphere, Happy Winter Solstice! The solstice refers to the time when the Sun seems to stand still. The word itself means to come to a stop. Yes, the Sun is the center of the universe and it doesn’t really stop moving.
Here comes the sun, doo da doo doo
Here comes the sun
It’s all right
It’s all right.
George Harrison, The Beatles Abbey Road
What better time to reflect on the past year than now? Immediately after the solstice the daylight hours begin to lengthen and that is certainly something to celebrate if you are a photographer that prefers to work with available light like me.
It is as if a reset button has been activated and that it’s time to start anew. Before starting anew, it’s important to look at what came before. Hence, now is a good time to curate your year in pictures.
So this issue is about the process of curating your photos from this year and also the photos taken by others that you have purchased as prints or books. What would you like to remember? We are always choosing our memories.
Happy Holidays and wishing the best for a fabulous New Year to you and your loved ones!
