When I look back on my whirlwind-year, my photos are as diverse as my experiences. There are a several pictures that stood out from the some of the blurry, less-exciting others. Here are my top 10 photos of the project. I’d love to know if you had other favorites that didn’t make the list.

Magic Kingdom's SummerNightastic Fireworks ShowNo. 1: Day 222

The fireworks show at Disney’s The Magic Kingdom on August 14. I like the silhouettes, the layers, the color.

Water bead on a leafNo. 2: Day 145

This one was my mom’s favorite. It was certainly the best photo I shot that day on our trip to Winter Park.

Banana spidersNo. 3: Day 248

I was really excited about this photo when I took it. I tried again and again until I got the perfect shot with both spiders in focus.

Performer at medieval fair stands on his headNo. 4: Day 27

It was my first time at the Hoggetowne Medieval Faire and I got some awesome shots. I look forward to going again with an even better camera.
Dance Alive National Ballet dancersNo. 5: Day 60

I took this while working on a video for INsite Magazine. It was a real cool assignment. Quite a few of my photos are of performers or were taken on some assignment.

Candle in churchNo. 6: Day 29

Lots of my photos involve light/candles/fire. I like how in this one you can see the other candles glowing in the background.
Clouds over Sandlake RoadNo. 7: Day 217

Clouds were another popular subject this year. I like the dramatic color differences here.

dodgeballNo. 8: Day 306

This one is my favorite action shot.

No. 9: Day 305

I just really like the color in this one.

Giant Sloth at FLMNH Hall of Fossils
No. 10: Day 152

In this one I like the colors, the angle and the interesting subject.

Goodbye, 2010!

Every New Year’s Eve, my friends from my former church high school group get together to eat, watch movies and exchange secret Santa gifts.

This Etch A Sketch was part of my present from Kathy. I’m pretty proud of my drawing.

Anna made pizza today. My mom brought home a bag of dough, cut veggies, cheese and sauce from Publix, so we had this yummy lunch.

Reiley’s modeling for me again because he’s the only one home while I’m playing with the camera.

Even though Santa brought him a new bed and blanket, Reiley still likes to make himself at home on Anna’s.

Today I inherited the flash gun from my dad’s almost 30-year-old film Canon SLR camera.

I’ve never used one before (we weren’t even allowed to use flash in my photojournalism class) so it’ll be an adventure figuring it out.

Here’s my family around my grandmother’s table waiting for dessert. It’s rare to catch them all smiling.

I was paparazzing them with my new Canon Rebel T1i (I paid for half of it).

Merry Christmas Eve!

Today I made gingerbread cookies for the first time (thank goodness for boxed mixes!). My favorite part of course was decorating the gingerbread men (and women), snowmen, angels, candy canes and trees.
