I'm getting together with a group of people to share our favorite photos of 2011. I knew I took a lot of photos but was still surprised at the quantity. And I was surprised by the 'feeling' of the year that started to emerge as I pulled out my favorites.
2011 was a tough year for so many people, I wasn't expecting to find the kind of photos that I did. Then the song "Valuable" by Furlough practically threw itself at me.
It wasn't part of my plan to share my slideshow on my blog, but when it hit me how many wonderful times and beautiful places I shared with people in 2011, and how much I appreciate the gift of photography for being there to remind me of this, I just wanted to say thanks to a world and the people that made these memories possible.
