This is the time of the year when you publish some of your best or favourite photographs taken in the previous year.
I didn’t travel around the country as much as usual in 2018, mainly because of illness over the summer, so I’ve limited myself to Belfast. These are some of the photographs that jumped out at me for various reasons.
I found it more difficult than expected to select images but right or wrong these are what I’ve decided on. They’re not in any particular order.

Pottinger’s Entry, Belfast
Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK, 4 August 2018. Thousands turn out for the annual Pride Day Parade.If I had been able to back up another few feet I would’ve got the full ‘Pride’ shadow on the road. Unfortunately there were too many people behind me.
