My year in photos

IMG 3699

2012… I hardly knew ya! Probably one of the busiest years of my life, it was one of the most fun fruitful and satisfying years as well. Sure it was stressful at times and yes, I packed on a few pounds, but let’s just say it was a year lived. Of course this is the year, I fell in love with Photography, thanks to Instagram which gave me the confidence that – yes I can take decent photos and share them with others. And as a result I am going to recap my year in photos. 

2012 was part of the journey of life. It started with reconnecting with family and old friends….lots of them in India.

    Friends, travel, learning, essential pleasures that make a year more than simply worthwhile.

    Photos of record, description, amplifying memories. Bravo. A year of accomplishment. A year of Om.
