Last week I looked at some of the iconic images of 2013.

But I think there's benefit for each of us to look back at our own personal images over the past year.  It's interesting to note how we've grown as a photographer, or how our style has changed.

But more than that - for many enthusiasts photography is not only a journey, but something that *leads* us on on a journey and takes us down interesting paths we might otherwise not have chosen.

These are some of the adventures photography has given me over the past year - I hope you've had some great ones as well!!
