2014 in review

2014 has been one hell of a year.

I originally wasn’t going to do a year in review. It’s already late in January and I felt like I’d been consistent in sharing my favorite images throughout the year. But last week I was asked to cull some photos for the paper I worked for in New Jersey, and I realized just how many things I’ve photographed in 2014. There are some repeats in here, images which I’ve shared before via Instagram or this blog, and there are others that were originally marked as outtakes. They aren’t all necessarily my best frames, but I’d like to think they’re a good representation of some of the things I’ve seen and done this year.

I started 2014 living in Newark, New Jersey. I learned – among many other things – that even four layers of clothing won’t keep you warm in a polar vortex and that digging your car out of snow takes three times longer than expected. In May I left the cold and headed to Southeast Asia to work as a photographer for Rustic Pathways, photographing travel programs for the company’s website and catalog. I toured five countries in three months, dropped a camera in the Mekong River, bought a new one in Bangkok, and met some wonderful friends and students along the way.

I’ve been back in Arizona since September, and the last five months have been a nice change of pace after the frantic nature of the last few years. I’ve picked up freelance work, taken a few trips to my favorite places, and then closed out the year with a visit to family and friends in England. Now, after some much needed rest, I’m ready to get back into things. Here’s to what 2015 will bring. Big changes and new adventures, I hope.
