Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures

By Ronniejt28 @hurtledto60

What a fabulous Photo Challenge this week – “My 2012 in Pictures”.  A multi-photo challenge.   It has also introduced me to tiled galleries.  It has certainly not been the easiest task to select one photo from each month to depict my year in 2012, but I think I have chosen the best.  Obviously, there are lots of wonderful memories of times with my family and grandchildren, but I am loathe to show photos of them on my blog as they are very personal.

Enjoy looking back on 2012 with me, click on any picture to get a full screen view.

November: a much needed walk along my local shoreline. It’s all too easy to forget its there and take it for granted.
