Getting to know G better days are normally Fridays but I was still in Bruges mode yesterday so uploaded a photo of Bruges instead! and with today being the last day of the year, it’s probably a little more appropriate to be about me today as we look back and reflect on the year 2011!
and what a crazy year it has been!
For me the biggest thing this year has to be the earthquakes back home in Christchurch, New Zealand and watching all my friends and family lose everything.
and of course there was the Japan Earthquakes and Turkey’s earthquakes, the flooding and mudslides in Brazil, flooding in Thailand, Pakistan, and the Philippines all resulting in loss of life’s and considerable damage.
Osama Bin Laden was killed, as well as Muammar Gaddafi.
There were lots of bombings and loss of life’s, and the Royal Marriage which I managed to avoid!
and lastly the US formally declares an end to the Iraq War…
The positive part of 2011 for me was leaving my full-time employment and working full-time on my Photography, and I was lucky enough to get a book published on to Amazon Kindle before the year was out, and of course all the places I travelled to this year as mentioned yesterday.
So of 2011 my most popular photo has to be Istanbul a Moment as it made it into Picture Correct’s Top 10 Photos of 2011
My most popular photo on Flickr and Facebook this year has to be Tower Bridge Light Trails
Here is my first self-portrait I did in my hallway this year which was a success, though probably more thanks to the bottle of wine I was drinking at the time than anything else!
Well Cheers to the End of 2011 and Lets Bring on 2012!
Good luck to Everyone..
May 2012 be everything you hope it will be and bring you everything you wish and desire….
Thank you for your support in 2011 and lets see what we can achieve in 2012!
Happy New Years!
