Electronic friends are echoing a similar refrain: "2012 SUCKED!"
And that's OK. The world has treated us better, but warmth, music, food and drink made it bearable. We worked a lot. Tune in (an old timey radio phrase) for my favorite pictures that I took this year. Be patient. I narrowed it down to 250 snapshots, but I plan to reduce it to less than 100. It was a photogenic, if shitty, year.
This is the very first photograph I took in 2012, and it encapsulates the year remarkably. It's not my favorite photo, though. Stay tuned.
