Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #180: Favorite Images of 2021


This week, on Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #180, host Tina asks everyone to post their favorite images of 2021.

2021 was a year of ups and downs from getting to travel after being cooped up for the duration of 2020 to going on my first work trip to finally getting the carpal tunnel surgery done on my right hand as well as getting the oral surgery that’s been putting off for over 10 years done. I have spent the last month of 2021 recuperating from both surgeries and was unable to take any pictures and I am now feeling antsy to get out there and shoot some pictures.

In my humble opinion, I feel my photography has improved year-after-year. I am looking forward to the new additions of the Lens-Artists team and the new themes each week which were a great inspiration for my 2021 photos. For now, I am going to end the post with my most memorable photo of 2021.
