Best photo of the year


Who usually visit this blog for sure noticed that I don't like to be verbose in my captions. Today let me write some more words. I would like in fact to say thank you to Patricia. Patricia spends some days in Torino each year, then she lives in Illinois. You don't know her, she didn't comment once here but she writes to me weekly, detailing reasons because she prefers one photo more than another. She did a great job putting together a selection of photos to put in a calender she realized and sent to me. A precious gift. So I asked her to choose wich one photo could represent better than others Torino. She chose Torino is Blue and I totally agree with her to consider it the best. ---

Anyway, today, everyone in the City Daily Photo community will post his/her best photo of the year, so, please don't miss to visit them: Click HERE to view thumbnails for all participants

She chose well....and I might add she is a very lucky lady to spend time in your beautiful city each year.

What a great choice and beautiful words about your friend Patricia. Of course it had to be BLUE for Torino!

Happy New Year, dear Fabrizio.

Hilda said...

You have so many fabulous photos, it's a wonder your friend Patricia was able to choose just one! Her choice is beautiful.

Happy theme day!

Laurie said...

It's a glorious choice!

Happy New Year, Fabrizio. May 2009 bring you health, happiness, peace and prosperity.

Hola Fabrizio! How smart of you to have someone chose for you; it's so much more objective. And, she did well!

Greetings for the New Year, and I wish you much happiness and good health for 2009. Kate of Visual St. Paul and Mazatlan, Mexico.

Fabrizio, I remember this one very well! How very wonderful of your photo friend from Illinois making a calendar using your images and helping you narrow down a choice for this Best OF 2008 theme day! That is precious. I forget what I commented when I first saw this image, but I love the blue and I love the light shining down that rail. The composition just makes this shot for me. Well done!
Wishing you a very happy and healthy 2009,

Fabrizio, great shot! I guess I told you this in the past when you published this... or was it somehting similar to this?

G@ttoGiallo said...

Ha ! Look what you've done !
That's because you never posted something from the Balùn !

Tanya said...

Fabrizio, what a wonderful story and stunning photo! Patricia sounds like a great friend, how kind of her!

Happy New Year :)

Incredible as always.

Happy New Year

Only once you enlarge it can you fully appreciate this one, because then the bridge fully contributes to the image. Excellent shot, but my favourite is yesterday's shot (just). Happy New Year Fabrizio!

Great capture. Love the reflection of the light on the railing.

Happy New Year!!

Saretta said...

Bellissima, come tutte le tue foto!

Ti mando tanti auguri x un anno pieno di felicità e benessere (di tutti i tipi, chiaro!)

What a wonderful way to choose the best! Patricia and you have made a great choice!

lunarossa said...

What a lovely idea Patricia had! If I done it I would have kept the calendar for myself! Lol! It is very difficult to choose among your great pictures! Hope your 2009 has started well. Ciao. Antonella

You have illuminated Torino so beautifully throughout the year, and this lovely blue example is a great choice. May the new year bring us all greater hopes for a more humane world.

Great choice and it must have been really tough: all your picture are fabulous. You really have a specific sty and I can almost recognize your pictures without seeing who posted them: the beautiful skies, water like mirror, everything is alway so smooth. You put us all to shame! ;)

A very Happy New Year to you Fabrizio! Bonne année! :)

Happy New Year!

What a beautiful gift, photo, and choice! Happy New Year!

Some people choose not to leave their words in comments and would prefer to email, and I also get more of those emails than comments.
