Image of the Year is a double-edged sword for us. I know. That might seem weird to hear, but please, allow me to explain.
Each session we capture is afforded ONE entry into Image of the Year. One. One freaking entry. That’s it. Try picking one image you love from one of the linchpin days of your life. It’s hard. It’s so hard.
Naturally, amazing images are left by the wayside. Images that we love and that speak to us. Images that are worthy of praise and award get left in the dust. Well, eff that.
So, to combat this, we’ve decided to highlight some of these images. Every single one of these has potential to win Image of the Year, and we can’t tell you how many more we’d would love show off if we had all the time in the world. For a myriad of reasons, they didn’t get their shot. Maybe there was an image better suited to their day? Maybe Sara didn’t like their face, and she couldn’t get past her personal bias? [ K, not really ] Maybe Brett had an aversion to children being hoisted and exploited for the sake of a garter toss? [ You’ll see ] Who knows. Regardless of the reason, these images didn’t receive their Image of the Year fame. They’re much like Derrick Rose in a sense that their potential was never realized – it’s just not because of multiple knee injuries in this case. [ Thanks, I’ll be here all week. Try the veal. Google him if you don’t know wtf I’m talking about ]
Anyways, without further ado, and before I ramble on for hours, soak in these images. We love them. They’re worthy of your time and our effort.
Maybe next year it’ll be “Images of the Year” …
