When I decided to blog my 2016 photographs, I honestly didn’t think I would have too much to show. I’ve been in a bit of a slump, photographically speaking, and nothing has really brought me out of it yet. But as I reviewed my images for each month, I saw that though the quantity was small, the quality (by quality I don’t mean technically, I mean personally) was perfect and it was a pretty good year after all.
Here’s my year in review and here’s hoping for a healthy, happy, amazing New Year!
I began the year ready to tackle a Project 366 – taking a picture every day for a year. I decided to do this with my iPhone only.
In February, I continued my Project 366..
and visited Eastatoe Falls.
In March, my Project 366 fizzled (more like incinerated) so I welcomed signs of spring…
found a farm dog perfectly situated inside the door of a big red barn…
April was quite busy. I continued my weekend at the Outer Banks…
went on a business trip with my husband to Edenton, NC…
and New Bern, NC…
where we got to see the Budweiser Clydesdale horses!
In May, I participated in the annual Clickin Moms Clickin Walk in downtown Asheville, NC. I was in the right place at the right time to capture this prom couple in front of a mural.
We attempted to catch the rhododendrons in bloom in June on Roan Mountain but were a little too late for them. The flaming azaleas were blooming though.
I also took a ride to Mount Mitchell where the evergreens were just beautiful!
I went on a hike to Devil’s Courthouse in July with a good friend.
I didn’t take many pictures at all in August, but I did get out my neglected Lensbaby lens and practiced a little bit.
I got back in the groove in September by going on a long weekend trip to Tybee Island, GA…
visiting the Mountain State Fair…
and taking a spooky picture of the Biltmore Estate.
The long awaited trip to Seattle, WA for the Click Away conference happened in October. I met SO many of my online friends in person and it was easily one of the highlights of my year.
The devastating fires in Western NC and the Great Smoky Mountains of TN had us begging for rain in November…
and the last of the autumn leaves finally fell.
December flew by and the little bird that sits on the bushes near my driveway came back.
So now I think I’m ready to tackle 2017… are you?
