12 Photos.

I shoot a lot. I do a photo a day challenge; I have always tried to have my camera with me at all times. This has been made easier with the iPhone–I ALWAYS have a camera now! I started to look at the photos I took over the course of 2015….These are almost all chosen from my photo a day.

These are the 12 photos I liked best last year..of the almost 9k photos on Lightroom from 2015… I have chosen one a month as my favorite….(Yikes. There are a LOT of photos that need to be deleted!) ETA:  WHICH is YOUR favorite, and WHY?? I would LOVE to hear your thoughts!!

Virginia weather dictates that before the first really crazy winter happens, the daffodils need to start popping through the ground….

Laylabug, trying out pigtail braids. I prefer contemplative photos very often, rather than the straight on, look at me cheesy smile.

*I was not told of this sadness.

*It’s a Great day for a wedding.

*Summer was kicked to the curb.

*What? You told me I couldn’t nap in your tote bag.

*Birthday girl.

*Hide and seek with cats.

*It’s after midnight and the closet door isn’t closed. Do I risk sleeping?
