Looking Back on 2014 – Part 2

Continuing my choice of favourite images from 2014.

It’s hard for any photographer to choose his or her best images, and impossible to really view one’s own work objectively. I can’t divorce these images from the people and events and feelings when I made them. There are also some things I photograph out of duty rather than love and which I really don’t want to remember and have avoided selecting.  So these are my personal favourites. Others might make very different choices.

In making my selection – limited to landscape format pictures for the slide show – I also decided against including the portraits of politicians and others well-known to the media, though one or two have crept in. Others who appear here are well-known to those who regularly attend protests that the media usually ignore. I also have not chosen more than a single image from any event.

Today I’m posting the images I’ve chosen from the middle of March to the early in June, in date order:
