Photography has become an interest of mine over the last few years. I don’t have a fancy camera, but find my phone generally does the trick (sometimes outfitted with a macro lens). Since the inception of Earl Grey Editing’s blog, I’ve used my own photography for posts. At the beginning of the year, I took it to a new level by shooting photos for my reviews instead of simply incorporating an image of the cover. It’s a bit more labour-intensive, but I’ve been pleased with the results.
As something fun, I thought I’d share my favourite 20 photos I’ve taken this year: 10 from the blog (or related social media accounts), and 10 from my personal life. It was surprisingly difficult to whittle down the list!

Often what I liked most about these photos wasn’t the composition but the matching colours.
Left to my own devices, I gravitate towards photos of the natural world… though I’ve not yet mastered the art of landscapes. Without the need to clearly display book covers, I can afford to be a bit more creative with lighting and composition.
It has been a tough year for many, making it easy to forget the beauty that has been present. These photos serve as my reminder. May 2017 bring even more moments like these.
