2013: A year in photos

These past two weeks were hectic and crazy with all the Christmas prep. A near constant drizzle added a dreary dimension. I stayed inside most of the time trying to stay warm and dry, and working like a maniac to get handmade gifts finished and mailed in time for the holidays. I wasn’t completely successful, but it’s all done now, and the last packages go out Monday.

Instead of haphazardly attempting to get a photo hike in, I decided instead to recap some of my favorite Sunday in my City photos from the past year. One from each month.

I went on photo hikes in Florida and Tennessee, at the beach and deep in the woods. I witnessed the power of a tropical storm, and the crazy surfers who love them. I trespassed in crumbling and abandoned buildings, and walked among the dead – human and otherwise. I paid my respects to a King, and communed with Mother Nature.

It was a very good year.

  1. I love this idea and had planned to do something similar myself and forgot all about it. Yours put a smile on my face. Happy new year!


  2. You always make me miss Florida with your pictures. The constant pretty weather (because even the rain is pretty in FL!

    GORGEOUS photos and I can’t wait to see what you’ll bring us in 2014!


  3. My new years resolution is to buy some of your photos this year. And I don’t even do NY resolutions.
    The hardest part would be narrowing it down…..I love 99.9% of your photos!!!


  4. Love, love, love them all, but especially Saved Seats and Oakland Cemetery because of the mood they invoke. Gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.
