Best of 2012, In honour of the Oscars…

One of my favourite posts was at the end of 2011 when I prepared a “best of 2011” of my favourite photos of the year.  I had hoped to do it again for 2012, but somehow just never got it done.  So, I figured with it being award season, and with the Oscars coming up, that this was a good time to post my own little “award show” of my photos from 2012! So here goes! 🙂

To make this “best of” list a little more interesting, and in the spirit of the award shows, I’m going to put the photos into categories.

Here are the “winners” of each category:

Best in “Motion”:  It’s a tie!
