A Selection Of My Favourite Images Found In 2014: 75 Photos By 75 Photographers

At the end of every year I try to collect all my favourite photos in one giant post (you can see previous roundups here: 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009). I want to clarify that this doesn’t mean all of these images were shot this year (many of them were), this is merely a collection of images I personally discovered in the past 12 months.

As part of the yearly tradition I wanna take this moment to say thank-you to all of you, everyone who continue to hang around on this website. Thank you for sharing your work, and encouraging the people whose work is featured here.

This is Booooooom’s sixth year! It’s kinda unbelievable to type that. Before this, the only job I ever had for more than a year was flipping burgers at McDonalds. I still love working on Booooooom every day because of you guys.

This past year Booooooom grew tremendously. Just over a year ago we launched @Booooooom on Instagram (would have done it sooner but some kid squatted on the name for three years) and already there are over 70,000 followers on there. Our Twitter and Facebook now have a combined following of nearly 250,000 and somehow our Google+ has amassed 3.5 million followers?! It’s surreal.

I can’t talk about this past year without talking about this email from a photographer named Eylül Aslan. Her email made my day (and week, and month, and year), which is why I called it “The Best Email in the Entire History of Booooooom”. Of all the things I accomplished this year, I am most proud of what’s in this email. The idea that Booooooom could affect someone’s life like that. I guess that’s really why I’m sitting here, at 6 AM (yet to sleep) writing this paragraph. I love that connecting with people, and connecting people to other people is somehow my job. It doesn’t feel like work.
 
I hope you enjoy this collection of images below as much as me. Thanks!

    • DO YOU NEED A LOAN? HERE IS MY TESTIMONY ON HOW I GOT MY LOAN
      Hello, Good day to everybody reading this,

      My name is Elizabeth Forbes from United States. I want to thank Mr John Michaels who helped me to get a loan. For the past three months, I have been searching for a loan to settle my debts, everyone tried to dupe me of my money until I finally met Mr John. He was able to give me a loan of $10,000 USD. He can also help you. He has also helped some other colleagues of mine. If you need any financial help, kindly contact his company through email: aceloanservices@hotmail.com I believe he can help you. Contact him to get help just as he helped me. below are his words of encouragement to those seeking for a legit and honest private loan lender.

      “Do you need a loan to pay off credits and debts? Do you need finance to set up your own business? Do you need loans to carry out large projects? Do you need college loan? Do you need funding for other various purpose? email: aceloanservices@hotmail.com
