It’s the time of year when we usually take stock of our life, hoping to make it better in some way and looking forward to the forthcoming year expecting it to bring solutions to our troubles.

That’s what I did. I started by taking stock of my images in 2016. You know what they say “an image is worth a thousand words”. If that is so, here is my year in 12,000 words 😉

Please, join me in this challenge and show me what your 2016 was like. Chose 12 of your best photographs – they don’t have to be from 12 different months, but photographs that you think represent best your year.

I’d like to thank all my faithful followers for participating in photo challenges that I am hoping to resume in 2017 as well. May the new year bring you good health, joy and fulfillment!

P.S. Following the earlier practice I will keep posting new challenge themes a few days in advance on Scheduled challenges page.

  3. You seem a little more upbeat, Paula, though you must still be as busy as ever. I hope that the year ahead has a smoother path for you. Whatever befalls we can rely on you to produce beautiful images. Wishing you joy but, most importantly, good health in the year ahead. And a few hugs 🙂 🙂

  11. I decided to post it today because it’s so slow today, I figure maybe i could stir up a little interest. I love your pictures, but that red-faced goose is my favorite. He looks so disapproving!

  14. Hola Paula!
    Hay unas fotos increíbles. No puedo elegir una preferida porque hay varias que me fascinan, como la del fósforo, el paisaje con la neblina y el árbol, las gotas y la ventana. Todas están muy buenas!
    Feliz año nuevo y que el 2017 te traiga muchas más fotos!

  21. Great challenge. Love all your pics; they show such a wide range of creativity. 🙂


    • That’s a very nice thought :), but it is inside what makes a person, not outside. I don’t have many possessions, or an easy life.
