Best (and Worst) of 2013

I try to make this blog post happen every year…I always have it played out in my mind but sometimes things/life gets in the way of social media, and I’m ok with that.  Anyway, this year I am excited to share some of my favorite photos I have taken this past year.  Aaaand, of course some of the “worst”….insert belly laugh.  Here we go…

I love this shot…the skyline stand on Liberty Island sits in front of the actual skyline…but shows the Twin Towers among the city as it was before 9/11.  Identical yet gaping. You can see the new towers being added one by one until they reach four.  Manhattan NY

Check out the rest of my personal “Best”…for one reason or another:

My “Best of the Worst” is always a good time to sort through.  There’s more than enough to choose from for a myriad of reasons like bad lighting, wrong settings, funky faces, horrible timing or just plain confusion.  But, they make for a fabulous yearly post…on with it shall we?  Of course these are all straight out of camera…no editing.

  1. Those were great Di. I enjoy everything you send. I love how my Jorge has grown up so. Tell him I said hello and don’t forget me when he becomes a big famous star. :-))
