Best of 2012

Hello! - I thought I would post 12 of my favorite photo's from 2012.  They are in no particular order or date.

I love this BW photo I took of our dog, Cricket. It's so hard to get a decent picture of her because she generally never sits still long enough to take a picture. She turned 2 years old on December 27th

I just loved the way the sunlight was shining on these fluffy clouds.

This shot of the huge duck (showcased during the Ducky Derby) perched on top of the bank just seems so fun and whimsical to me.

For me this shot of Bennington Lake is made even more special by the wonderful quote that I found to go along with it.

This shot of Piglet laying in my window box is one of my favorite because he just has that totally "laid-back" attitude that is so much a part of his personality.

The very first of my Photo Art that I had printed on Canvas.  I love it.

This shot of my husband playing his guitar is very special and sentimental to me.

My all time favorite photo of our cat, Snickers.  I just love how sweet she looks in this picture.

This SOOC (Straight out of the Camera) shot of a Wasp peeking over one of the rose leaves in my garden caught me by surprise when I downloaded my photos.  I love the expression on it's face.

My favorite of all the flower shots I took in 2012. 
This is my favorite shot of Coleen from 2012.  I love the vibrant colors of the leaves and her wonderful smile and beautiful eyes.

This last shot is my one of my favorites from the (Scavenger Hunt Sunday) meme.  It was for the prompt, Toys and my "sick" sense of humor got the better of me that day.  I had a lot of fun with this photo and that is why it got showcased in the best of 2012 photos.

Looking forward to many great photo's this year!  See you back on Friday for the first Photo Art Friday of 2013.  I'll be showcasing my "One Word" for 2013.


  1. These are great, Ida, and I remember most of them! The second photo of the clouds is gorgeous!

  2. These are all terrific. But, being an animal lover, I really like the Cricket and the cat ones. It's hard to get a good pic of a black dog. Yours is really wonderful!

  3. Your photos are just wonderful!

  4. Great photos, what a fun look back! I love your new header collage too! :)

  5. What a wonderful group! I tried to pick a favorite, couldn't do it. I went back over them and picked coleen in the leaves! I have missed seeing you! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, filled with lots of favorite photos!

  6. Excellent!! That is the cutest darn dog I have ever seen! Love the kitties Piglet is such a cute name for a cat.
