2012: my year in photos

It’s incredible to think that today is the last day of 2012 and that one year ago, I wrote this post looking back on the photographic highlights of 2011. I received so many wonderful comments about my photos after that post, and amongst them, several readers declared that they looked forward to seeing my photographic highlights of 2012. It seemed like such a way off, but here we are, 12 months later. It seems like the year has shot past and yet, when I look back over the photos which have captured my year, I can see that I have been blessed with a year full of multiple adventures, travels, sights and sounds, and so many glorious photographic moments that it was almost impossible to choose between them.

Yet here is my attempt to collect together my year in photos. Inevitably, the greater majority of these shots were inspired by my travels, which saw me take in city trips to Amsterdam and Salamanca, Bologna and Lisbon, Madrid and Liverpool, as well as balmy seaside trips to Tuscany and Marbella. However, asides from the travels, London will forever go down in my mind as being the year which brought we Londoners two spectacular events which changed everything about our city, both in atmosphere and legacy – the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, and the Diamond Jubilee of HRH Queen Elizabeth II. This really was a spectacular year for my country, when national pride rose to an all time high, and the previously gloomy streets of a recession-hit country became multicoloured when bedecked in the olympic rings and union jack flags aplenty.

So here are my photos, of travels, of games, of festivities, of seasons. But amongst my favourites are also the unplanned moments, captured on my iPhone camera, which is so handy when a scene of unexpected beauty is discovered, such as the sunset over Clapham Common, the stag beetle and the cicada, the silhouette at the National Theatre and the autumn hues in London’s St James’ Park.

But that’s surely enough talking. Let the photos do the rest. I give you my year in photos, until next year…

 

Happy New Year everyone!
