A favorite photo doesn't necessarily have to be the "best" photo or an "award-winning" photo. It simply has to have meaning for you.

Shutter Speed 1/500th of a second. Aperture: f/3.2
Above: This is a favorite photo of mine. And not just because of her awesome stare. For me, it reminds me of the people I met in India. Before traveling there, I worried that the people may not want to have their picture taken. (Soul snatching and what-not.)
I was very lucky the day I visited the Taj Mahal. Several women not only let me take their picture, they began to enjoy it. After several shots, I would show the ladies the pictures of themselves and they would giggle at the site of each other. That little three minute exchange I had with them was pretty cool for me and I think they enjoyed it too. This is my favorite photo that I took that day.

Shutter Speed: 1/60. Aperture - f/2.5
Above: This is another of my favorite photos taken over the years. The scene is a storefront window display in Austin, TX. What makes this shot great (again, for me) is that I took it with my camera behind my back (like a no-look pass in basketball).
My friends were all walking way too fast for me to take pictures. I kept stopping to get a shot and they kept walking and then I would run to catch up. Then I would stop to take another picture and they would walk. And I would run. I grew tired of running and saw this cool scene in a store front window but didn't want to stop. So, I swung the camera behind my back and shot blindly at the window - and I nailed it.
