Our failings are laid plain before us, and so we resolve to "do better" next year. We share our resolutions with others, in the forlorn hope that somehow our friends will make our commitments hold.

Are you having a bad day or something?

I shot several thousand photos in 2016, using a wide variety of cameras. I shot digitally, and using many types of film. I shot photos on photo excursions, on business trips, on days off, on my commute, on vacation, while at work, in abandoned malls, in busy hubs of activity. My love affair with photography continued strong.

Here's all the cameras and lenses I used in 2016

But did I get any better?

Maybe. You tell me. Below are my 20 strongest photos from this year, in the order in which I shot them.
