2010 Pictures of the Year

It’s been a pretty good year for me. I graduated college, completed three internships and got a job. I also made a few good pictures along the way. Going through my archive recently, I compiled a gallery of the year in pictures that includes 75 photos. It’s a chronological gallery that shows what I’ve been up to this year. Figuring most people wouldn’t want to look at 75 photos, I edited down to my 15 favorites from this year. It’s been a fun year, but I’m very excited to get started in Wyoming in 2011.
