2011 was a pretty great year. I travelled, I Unravelled, I made new friends online and off and I sought to connect with my world with a renewed sense of wonder and gratitude. Photography was a huge part of all that, just as it’s become a huge part of me. Here are the 12 photos that sum up my 2011.
In January I travelled to South Africa, spent a LOT of time on a bus, met up with a lovely friend, and celebrated the beauty and abundance of the universe.
In February I signed up for my second course with Tracey Clark and did some dabbling in self portraiture.
In March I went wandering in search of some photogenic scenery.
In April I got to meet beautiful baby Madison and take her picture.
By May 15th, just when we thought Spring would never come, the tulips were FINALLY beginning to bloom.
In June I was my own muse.
In July I fell deeply in love with Polaroid and captured my two favourite blondies with my SX-70. *sigh*
In August I said goodbye to an old friend and hello to a new one. SHINY!
In September I embraced the everlasting Summer weather with a picnic in the park and some Polaroid 600 film.
In October I found the sweet spot, both in my borrowed Lensbaby and among my Camp Sisters.
In November I made a wish on 11.11.11 with a community of wishers.
In December I celebrated joy and magic with people I love.
How are you remembering 2011 and looking ahead to 2012?
