A Year in Pictures

imageOn January 1st 2011 I took a picture of a Stand Up Paddle (SUP) board session with my son Nick. Little did I know it was going to turn into a year long obsession.

imageI’d like to say I’m clever enough to think this up on my own, but alas … I am not!  It was inspired by my friend Betsy Weber (@betsyweber) If you don’t know Betsy you should. She is the Technical Evangelist at TechSmith – where they make great products like SnagIt, Camtasia and Jing.

Betsy tweeted out something in early January that she was going to try and take a picture a day for the whole year. I thought that seemed like a fun and do-able goal. So, I co-opted her idea and started clicking and tweeting every day. The results of which are listed below. I didn’t take pictures of the same thing everyday. I was VERY sure people would NOT want to see a picture of me everyday throughout the year.

Enjoy The Year In Pictures

So, please enjoy a little trip down memory lane with me as I highlight some of my favorite pictures from the Year that was 2011. See my note at the bottom about image usage. It’s simple … If you like ‘em … use ‘em!

The Last Picture Show

I have not taken the last picture of 2011 yet. Got any recommendations? I’m going to get out for a ride today and we have our annual crab feast with friends tonight. So, I will likely get a picture or two from there. You will just have to wait and see what the last picture of the year is … perhaps you’ll be in it!
