A few things happened to spur this blog post. I saw on Facebook that a friend of my daughter’s made a comment about how high school was so… long ago. Now my daughter and her friend are only 25 years old. Wasn’t it just yesterday they were in high school? You are already looking back and reminiscing? What I like to say to them is, “You haven’t seen nothin’ yet!!” You have SO much more ahead of you and you don’t know what you are headed for.
Another thing that happened was that my Aunt who was married to my late Uncle died today at age 93. I can just picture her looking at me and saying “You haven’t seen nothing yet!” And she would be absolutely right. Just like my daughter’s friend, I still have a whole life ahead of me to live ( albeit maybe not as long as she has).
The last item that happened today was my picking up the finished framed picture which I received from the best friend a person could have. (See the picture and her website here:) We recently came back from visiting her in Tasmania.
At this time of the year people usually reflect on the year before. Things that should have been done and things that did happen. Is there a reason to have regrets? Maybe that is what drives us to make change. At this time I would hate to break the tradition so I do want to reflect on this last year but I am not reflecting on the items I regret.( Don’t we all regret something?) Rather, I want to show you what I consider to be my best photos of 2012. I feel my photography has improved this past year. I look forward to what 2013 will bring as well as what I will be able to achieve.
This photo won me first place in the Scott Kelby Photowalk 2012 in the city of Saskatoon, SK. I have been wanting to go on the Worldwide Photowalk for a few years and 2012 was the year I was able to join. Can’t wait until Fall of 2013 to join in again! This photo also won ‘Best of the Show’ in our local Photo Club Continue reading →
