Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in Pictures
Days 163 to 525 – January 1 to December 28, 2012
For their last weekly photo challenge of 2012, WordPress has asked people to create the year gone by in pictures.
I’ll start off my septet of Peruvian (except one) photographs in the month February with a shot of Laguna Huacachina in the southern coastal portion of the country where we vacationed.
In the third month of 2012, our neighborhood of Lima saw its playground undergo a makeover. The slides were replaced with a large sandbox (see below) and it only took a few months for the new structure to arise to the delight of all the local children.
In April, the family enjoyed one last gasp of summer, by the reckoning of the Southern Hemisphere, as we trooped on down to the beach in the Miraflores area of Lima. This visit is where I also took this photograph (as previously seen in another WordPress challenge).
Jumping to July and outside of Peru, I simply must share this photo of a gentleman doing his own thing in National Airport in Washington D.C. I share because I can.
For the ninth month of the year, our family went to Lima’s Parque Kennedy and attended PeruFloral 2012, an outdoor exhibit centered around flowers and plants. One of the displays was a design on the sidewalk composed of parts of flowers. It’s probably the only time I could snap a pic of a non-blurry hummingbird.
October saw us enjoy a quick weekend in Lunahuana where we partook of the available activities including river rafting and riding on ATVs. There was also the option to try our hand at ziplines, but we passed. However, I did not pass up the chance to take a picture of those who did not pass.
To finish, here is a photo I took in December while the family was on a double-decker bus taking a scenic tour of Lima.
To cap off the year and this post, I wish you the best of holiday wishes – Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy New Year – and I also hope you, my wonderful reader, have someone to kiss when 2013 comes a’knocking.
