These photos should be your personal favorites. They don't need to be the best, they just need to be the ones you love the most.

Here are a couple of my favorites. The first is the Yellowstone River at the brink of the Upper Falls in Yellowstone National Park. The second is the World War II Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. For a collection of my favorites, see http://bob12.smugmug.com

There are lots of photographs I really love but I have narrowed it down to these two representatives.
This is a photograph of my grandfather, taken in 1989 when the two of us went for a walk together. I treasure all my photographs of loved family members who are no longer with us:

And this is of Lanen's and my wedding cake. You don't get to take many pictures at your own wedding, but I managed this one before the proceedings started:

The Grand Canyon. I love the way this photo looks like a paint by number painting.

Indeed Blondmom, easy to see why these are favorites! Bob12, I really love your second one - a perfect night shot of the memorial!

Wow, it is very hard to choose. Since having kids, I've taken over 20,000 photos. Choosing overall favorites is exceedingly difficult, so I'm going with recent favorites, both of which were very lucky shots:
