December 30th, 2011 | Comments Off on 2011: A Year End Review in Twelve Photos

One photo chosen from each month of 2011 – excluding ones of artwork. Doing this made me realise how little I’ve been using Flickr this year, and how much I use Instagram. I’ve also come to rely on my iPhone as a primary camera rather than my DSLR.

It was a year filled with lovely moments, which these photos only hint at.

Here’s to a good year in 2012!

I’m in pre-Christmas chill out mode, and so was catching up on blog reading when I came across this video. These large-scale pop-up sculptures are really incredible.

Perhaps I need to revisit paper engineering in the new year.

Frosty leaves


Frosty leaves

These photos are from two weeks ago when Vancouver had a few days of frost on the ground. I love the look of frost on leaves and grass, the way every detail is outlined and highlighted.
