After 29 posts so far, I’ve looked back & compiled those photos I consider the best–in terms of aesthetics more than according to how special or uncommon the photos’ subjects are. ┬áThese are the ones that I can look back on & think “I don’t think I could have captured that situation & mood any better.”

So, here are 23 photos I consider the best.
