...Reflecting on 2012 - Self-Portrait Style

So I've got this friend, Anne.  She's one of the best ones I've got.  You can meet her here.  My B and her B have been friends forever.  Luckily for me, her B got her for me about 4 years ago.

Now we spend quite a bit of time together.  One of our favorite past times, it might seem, besides drinking wine and ending up on a kitchen floor in deep conversation is to grab a nearby camera and take a portrait of ourselves.

Here's just a few of them from 2012.

*Note:  I am including a few that were either photobombed by others or that we allowed others to grace our photos with their presence.  You may notice that a few photos are, in fact, being taken by someone else.  Sometimes we have beer or babies in our hands, making it difficult to take our own shots.

**Another note:  These are in no particular order, as that would have made this take even longer.

  1. This is probably the best blog post I've ever seen. And I'm totally unbiased on the subject matter. I think my favorites are the dolphin photo-crash, and the beer one from Wilco because of all the awesome things happening there.

    The shower and lung run were both September. I think it's odd that we didn't really have any pictures during the beginning of the year (though as I check, I just didn't take any of anything then), but I'm glad we could make up for it this summer/fall. Here's to another year of selfies!
