Final Sunset of 2012
It's been an up and down year. I'd have to say it's been a great year for photography - I certainly enjoyed myself in that respect. But for the most part, 2012 was the worst year of my life with the passing of my mother in October (just days after my fall trip to the Carolinas).
I tell folks that my dad, who is a professional photographer, got me into the art. But it was always my mom who truly encouraged me to go out and make the best of it. Up until her eyesight diminished, she enjoyed seeing my photography and pushed me to work at improving my skill set.
It won't be easy now that she's gone, but from here on out, I resolve to do my best, enjoy my favorite hobby and dedicate the very best to her.
