In previous years, I’ve had little problem deciding which photo to share for Photo Friday‘s annual “Best of” challenge. This year, though, no one photo jumped to mind, so I clicked through my 2008 archive to chose my favorite five.

The above image is an extreme (and extremely reflective) close-up of Josiah McElheny’s Endlessly Repeating Twentieth Century Modernism, which I blogged in May. Next is a greedy gull I snapped during a trip to Revere Beach in October…


…which calls to mind another gull I blogged after a trip to Los Angeles in January.

Perched on the pier

Closer to home is a silly shot I snapped at a New England Revolution soccer game, which I blogged in August

Say cheese

…and even more mundane is the accidental geometry of an image I shot on a sunny day in April. Which of these “fave five” is the best of 2008? Take your pick.

Table for two

These five photos are my contribution to this week’s Photo Friday challenge, “Best of 2008.” (Use these links to see my Best of 2007, 2006, 2005, and 2004 images.)
