You Capture: top 10 of 2010

Wanna know how to torture a photo geek? Ask them to pick just TEN of their favorite pictures from the past year.


So impossible, in fact, that I picked eleven. I AM A REBEL.

Some of them are my favorites because as a photo, they are technically good and I’m proud of them. Or I like the way they ended up after I tinkered in Photoshop. Others bring back a memory, a moment. And some of them… well, they just take my breath away, quite frankly.

It was a truly amazing year.

    First, I do not know how you picked 11 because I have seen so many of your pics and they are all awesome. Second, Maggie has really grown up so much in the pic from the first to the last. Thank you for sharing with us :) Third, keep up the great work Mama!

      I KNOW!! I can’t believe that a year ago she still had baby fat. Even looking back at pictures from May, she had round chubby legs. Now they’re skinny toothpicks! GAH.

    Eleven- you ARE a rebel. I don’t know how you did it- I’m trying to find ONE of the Hubs and B to print to hang on the wall, and I’m having a rough time….

    And you have adorable girls. But you already know that I think that! :)
