January's Theme - Photo of the Year and thanks to Jack!




It's been a long-standing tradition in the City Daily Photo community to begin the new year with a favourite photo from the last.  

We will never know if Jack chose to "host" January's theme so he wouldn't have to think of a new topic, but we all owe him a large thank-you for his efforts in rustling up a dozen volunteers once again to keep the theme days on track for the coming year, to say nothing of the even bigger task of keeping his large boot planted on my posterior so that the buttons and levers get pushed mostly close to on time!   

Thanks Jack,  from Peter and everyone else who enjoys our taking part in or visiting our theme days!

In Paris on vacation, Jack came across an outdoor photo exhibition along the Seine.  One intriguing set of large format photographs showed faces of Africans from a remote village.  These tribal members practiced facial scarring, an ancient (but dying) tradition.

Jack waited for someone interesting to approach the photographs.   After half an hour, an elegant Frenchwomen came into view.  She stood quietly and studied the African faces.  Jack took a shot.  The resulting image is one of his favorites from the trip.  He showed it on his Naples and Hartford in Season blog in October.

Which photograph on your blog was your favorite in 2015?

Actually, it will probably be first on Facebook, or Twitter, or maybe you'll hear about it from the nice old guy next door. Whatever the case, if you have news to share, how about sharing it with us, so we can share it with everyone and actually make these pages useful?
