Best Photos of 2012

I’m no photographer but I do love taking photos. And I do like posting them on my blog; linkys like The Gallery and Silent Sunday help break up my sometimes word-heavy week of posting.

Today is the last day of 2013 and and I’m linking this post up with the talented TheBoyAndMe and her Photographic Flashback of 2012.

Her challenge to us was to choose 12 photos, one for each month, out of all the photos we’ve taken over the whole year. This has not been an easy task, but here are my 12. I decided to chose ones that had my family in them, rather than ones where I’d attempted to be arty farty. There are less of the older DDs as they are not so happy about being photographed as they get older, and I can’t be bothered chasing them around for the sake of a shot.

DD3 and DS’s joint birthday party.

DS not sure about being in a bubble; he had to wear his coat. DD was disappointed that the bubble wasn’t a sphere that would float away with her in it.

Well, that’s it for 2012.
