Believe it or not, I took the least amount of photos in 2012 then any other year prior. It bums me out that photo blogs are becoming the dinosaur of social mediums. People are looking for quicker gratifications and it is just something you can’t compete with if you take time to cherish each photo you take. But as I look at my photos from this years past, it pleases me that my little efforts were there the whole time. All of these photos kill any photo on Instagram (I know, a bad comparison but sadly I put the same amount of effort into each photo even if it is just one cell phone shot). It makes me realize that this hobby still hasn’t escaped me. With a new camera and a lens to start off the year (I’ll miss my Nikon D90), I will reinstate my 2012 new year’s resolution for the 2013 year and try and take better quality photos for all you to enjoy.

These photos below were all taken within the past weeks in 2013. I think I am off to a decent start.
