If I had to make a list of favorite ways to welcome the New Year visiting a beach would be right up at the top. John and Ryan have bravely joined me for some of cold, wet and windy walks along the shore followed by a quick photo to mark our presence and in 2014 this tradition grew to include one “selfie” photo taken on the first day of every month. I thought it would be a fun way to note what the year looked like and on December 31st 2014 I wrote a small post about our efforts illustrated by a collage of the 12 photos.
Of course we had to start 2015 at the beach with a new photo so I thought why not continue the series and take a photo every month for at least one more year. We’ll never look any younger than we do today, right? There were several nights when none of us wanted to pose for a picture but I persevered and by the end of each session we were usually laughing at our awful first attempts and couldn’t stop until everyone was at least slightly happy with the end result.
I didn’t have the 2015 photos ready in time for a post on the 31st but I thought this photo challenge would be a great excuse to play with Shape Collage on my iPhone so here you have our latest group of 12 images presented in a circle.
