Good thing I’m enjoying a few days off from taking photos because it’s not a very pleasant time of year around here for photography. In the mean time I’m posting a few photos from the past year that didn’t make it into my blog. Just like the photos in Volume 1, some are good, some are just OK, some I’ve posted on Flickr at the time, and some are variations on shots that I previously posted. Volume 2 is from June to December 2011. I have a few more extras this round than I did the first half of the year. It’s quite a large group of photos. If I wanted to I could be really lazy and get a years worth of blogging just talking about these individual photos, but I can’t think that way. I’d rather push these out and start on something new. Looking back, I seemed to have hit a stride mid year and started really shooting a greater variety of subjects and taking more chances. We’ll see how that pays off in 2012. Hope you enjoy them.

That there is one hell of a collection of B-sides.
Wonderful, David! I love them all, especially the flowers, vintage wood and bottles.
jeepers and these are the rejects !!!!!!!!! Some really wonderful images.. hard to pick one or 2 favourites… definitely the stone girl with red leaves, the blue steering wheel and some of the abstracts stand out. great job !
I can see why you had a difficult time choosing. These photos are fabulous! Thanks for sharing what you considered “the ones that didn’t make the cut.” Great work!
Thanks. Some of these didn’t make the cut simply because they got lost in the shuffle at the time. I think it’s worth going back in the files every once in a while and looking at some past photos. There may be some gems that got passed over.
I love your photography. It is so inspiring! Gives me a boost to my creativity to get out there and take more photos. I understand about the lack of photography opportunities this time of year. Living in the Mid-west I have the same problem. Finding color in a gray world is hard but a challenge worth taking. Keep sharing the great photos!
Thank you. It’s rough this time of year but I can’t use that as an excuse. I somehow made it through January last year so I need to just pick myself up and head out the door. Like you mentioned, it’s a challenge, but the rewards are greater.
Again, as with the first set, I understand why you took most of these shots, and likewise, why they didn’t make the cut. (Perhaps not specifically “why” but I would have culled them, too.) I like quite a few of them, and would probably not genuinely get rid of any of them (the same goes for the first set); but unlike the first set, I don’t really see any (possible exception of the statue holding the leaves) that I would say shouldn’t have been cut.
A more varied set than Vol.1 but it was a little tougher to find the cutouts as I started posting more photos in the second half of the year.
