As I closed out 2013, I thought I would jump on the “Best of” bandwagon. Here are my favorite images from each of the towns I toured in 2013. I toured 43 towns. I didn’t quite get to a town a week, but considering all of the time I spent out-of-state, I think I did ok. As I looked back through all of images, I realized a few things about myself. I like images that seem peaceful. I spend a lot of time photographing water and animals. I don’t spend enough time photographing people. Some of these images aren’t my favorite because they are the best photo that I took in that town but because of how I felt when I took them. Looking back through all of these images helped remind me that even though 2013 had its challenges, there are still plenty of good memories to savor.
