A twist on the typical year-in-review feature from our photographer's perspective.

As Dickinson College's photographer, I make thousands photos during the course of a year. Many do not get used. In my opinion and those of my colleagues, these pictures have merit and are worthy of being seen.

In the interest and spirit of sharing some of them, I have (with great difficulty) selected 12 photos [that were originally added one per day to a Facebook album]. I will offer a brief thought on what prompted me to make each photo or why I feel each is worthy of being shared. I hope that others experience the same emotional or esthetic feelings that I sought to convey when making them.
