I thought it might be interesting to see the 2012 year-in-review according to a select group of my cell phone pictures. I take a lot of pictures when I travel, so not every place ends up on the phone, but it’s a good random 2012 year in review.
It shows I am certainly blessed with wonderful a family, great friends and a good life.
