Thematic Photographic - Favorite photos of the year

"Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real." - Cormac McCarthy
"But also, scars have the mysterious power to retain those moments we wish to never forget." - Karen


Our last theme for this year is as it's been before, when closing out the year.  

Our very own favorite photos we've taken, and possibly posted already this year.  For more TP posts go here.

Oh my, so many it's not an easy task.

Just a few favorite photos from this year.

Celebrating the ride.

Happiness !

Lake Calhoun Park- one of my favorite parks nestled along a favorite lake of mine.

Falling in love,

and yet she ignores me!

Put a cherry on it!

Taking that random shot behind me.

Never forget.

Pure, cuteness.

Purr-fectly charming.

Intense beauty.

Sailing dreams.

Everybody needs a hug.

The spirit of autumn brings a welcome playfulness with a hint of frightfulness.

Awesome set of photos. The boy in the chair looks quite relaxed, and I really liked the dual dog shot.

Those are truly great shots! I love the little girl with her pink hat dropping over her face! All of them are lovely - especially of course, the dogs!

Happy New Year to you!

Look at you, going toe-to-toe with Cormac McCarthy! I don't think any of those shots were taken yesterday in MN... I hear it's cold up there, but I spent the Eve on the baach (in NC). Have a blessed 2014

Karen S. said...

Sage, you are so right, not recent photos at all. Lucky you though, what a beautiful place to be. Happy New Year to you too.

Bob Scotney said...

You just know I'm going to choose the dog shots.

Great selection! My favourite was the great array of people with candles, what atmosphere! But I liked them all. Have a wonderful 2014, Karen.
