Favourites from 2020
I have been meaning to pull this together since the start of the year, but it has taken a while. Last week Tina suggested we pull together our favourites and finally I have my collection to share. I have gone with the 52, an idea pinched from a friend who recently posted his top 52 on Facebook. I must add that these are not necessarily my best 52, technically or artistically, they are my favourites. I have chosen ones that tell the story of the year, ones that I enjoy looking at, and ones that show the year still had some action and variety. 2020 was very different to previous years and very difficult at times.
The year started out as normal, with my usual wanders around London, and my January day trips to the coast. I nipped over to Rotterdam, which had been on my list for a while, and had a few days in Lisbon. By then the pandemic was well under way, and lockdown in the UK followed soon after. During various relaxations of of lockdown, I went into London, ventured up to Edinburgh-festival-less Scotland and popped over the channel to Brittany and Normandy. Hopefully you’ll get a feel for the changing seasons and moods as I run you through my year.
