Merci Gary! Bonne Année!
Congratulations on a wonderful year of street photography, much of which I would assume was snuck in-between teaching duties.
I noticed the use of a white/black border combination. This would be more than you usually do, which would see you posting them edge to edge, or with a single border. A necessity or creative choice?
Do you crop many / any of these photographs. The composition is so consistently perfect!

The border is made in the slideshow function in LR. Still experimenting but I quite like it.
I try to consistently ‘crop in camera’ but I do tweak in post when necessary. I think it’s important not to press the shutter with the cropping tool in mind but rather to compose as if it wasn’t even available. It’s all part of shooting with more intent.
Thanks, Valerie, for the insights into your work practices. I’m glad to read that you attempt to compose in-camera, but are pragmatic enough to crop in post when necessary. I think that this is a very sensible approach.
What a beautiful, heartwarming, inspiring collection! Congratulations on a wonderful year behind the camera, Valérie — and wishing you another wonderful year ahead.
I so enjoy your photos as I’m drawn to street photography.
Thank you Lulu!
Thank you for all you do to make our world more beautiful both with the capturing of images and the “do something for nothing.” Let’s make 2018 a grand time for humanity. Merry Christmas and happiest of holidays, Valerie.
Thank you for your continued support. Yes, let’s make a difference in 2018, one act of kindness at a time 🙂
Happy new year!
Beautiful montage. Thanks for putting it together.
I’m glad you enjoyed it Alan!
Loved the photos. I’m not a street shooter, but I love listening to your Podcast and the stories, and I enjoyed the 100 photos of 2017. Have a great 2018. Maybe one day I’ll give it a try 😉
I think you should Justin 😉 Thanks for tuning in to Hit Th Streets!
2017 a été une belle année photographique. En route pour 2018, les yeux grands ouverts !
C’est très joli “Les yeux grands ouverts”. Merci et bonne année!
Valerie, Thank you for your Christmas wishes! I wish you and your loved ones the very same!
