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.
