12 from ’12!

I posted an 11 from ’11 last year, and so loved the chance to review my “year in pictures,” that I decided to make it an annual tradition! And the bonus? I get to pick more and more images every year—LOL!

So, here are my personal favorites from 2012, in the order in which they were taken:













And also in keeping with the tradition I started last year, here is my favorite from 2012 that Emily took:


And for a new addition, Emily’s favorite of her work from this year (which also happens to be my other favorite of hers; I picked the Disneyland one simply because it was also a wonderful memory!):

    Emily does such a great job with her photography! Does she have a blog?ReplyCancel

    Amy, no, Emily doesn’t have her own blog yet; for some reason the thought still makes me a bit nervous. But she “guest blogs” for me on occasion, so you’ll find her posts here!ReplyCancel

    You have done a fantastic job at picking an excellent set of pictures. Personally, I liked the fireworks, icicle, the hummingbird, and snowflakes because those are images we take for granted and rarely see in our hustle bustle world. If we took the time to stop and look at these images in the world around us, we will notice more and appreciate more of what the Earth’s wonders offer us.

    I also like Em’s Disneyland picture….all the vibrant colors of the rainbow stand out…excellent!

    And finally….i didn’t notice how much the eyes on Father and daughter are so similar. Priceless.ReplyCancel
