Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures

Posted on Updated on

Here is this week’s photo challenge, My 2012 in Pictures.  I spent part of 2012 in Zimbabwe, returning to my home in Maryland in August, so my photos for the year cover many different parts of the world.  I hope everyone will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

    Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based on the same information you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e-mail.
