2015 was no exception.
This year I added both quality and quantity to my fine art photography portfolio. I also totally redesigned my fine art photography website: www.tombellart.com.
My other big announcement is that effective January 1, 2016, I'm retiring from my long-time position as a college administrator and educator to devote full time to photography. I'll have more time for international travel and to take on the projects that really interest me.

A SHORT YEAR IN REVIEW
In January of 2015, I traveled to Guatemala again with my family. It was a great opportunity for street photography and capturing images of people being comfortable in their own environments.
|Pepsi Man. This Mayan Indian man was enjoying a soda in the busy market of Santiago Atitlan. This may be my favorite image of the year. You can click on images for a larger view.|
|Here's the same gentleman in color.|
|I believe that these men were father and son. Again, from the market of Santiago Atitlan.|
|These shrimp in the marketplace looked appetizing.|
Now, jumping to Illinois, I found these images of an old farmstead when I took a detour around a delay on the Interstate:
|The old farmhouse is just west of Nashville, Illinois.|
|I also liked the wide shot with the barn in back.|
|An old out building also stood out among the rows of corn.|
Take a look at older posts from my blog and you'll see these and many other photographs that helped inspire a creative 2015.
