  1. Best photo... Kevin's face... oh wait never mind. Best photo goes to the waterfall!

  2. Congrats, Sarah!! 200!

    Vivi votes Helios and Eiffel Tower; Miranda votes Helios; I vote Nephew and Sunset.

  3. I'm voting fot the smallest cat (since I took that one!). But in reality, I'd vote for the Eiffel Tower or the waterfall.

  4. I've looked at this line-up over and over again, and can't pick a fave. Can we just have a photo book with all your great photos of 2012?

  5. Photofinish win for that young lad admiring the wonder of Christmas (and Christmas trees), followed closely by the Eiffel Tower and the SD ocean sunset.


  6. Four of your nine photos are from San Diego. WOW!
