This has been an insane year.
I've done so much traveling, meeting, adventuring, experiencing, living, and loving in the past year I don't even know where to begin. I know it's a bit unorthodox to post a personal photo recap for August 2012-August 2013, but I just can't resist. I was browsing through my photo archives today and stumbled across this top image here, the cabin reflecting in a pond, and happened to glance at the date the photo was taken. It was taken August 23rd, 2012. 365 days ago to this very date. That got me thinking about all the amazing times I've had in this past 12 months and how I haven't done a single thing to commemorate those experiences other than the occasional Facebook photo upload that got lost in the ether of the countless whimsical, and single-use posts that I make on a daily basis.
With travels from San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago, Atlanta, Knoxville, Asheville, Morgantown, Charleston and a million other places...I'm presenting just a handful of the personal and private photos that were taken during the 365 days. There isn't anything especially spectacular about these photos, from an artistic standpoint, mind you. Some shots were taken with professional gear, others with a point and shoot camera. There's even an iPhone snap , and some scanned instant film thrown in.
Some photos include friends, some include strangers, and most, if not all, have stories, memories, or something even as simple as a single thought that gets recalled upon viewing them. And after all, isn't that what a photo is all about?
