From a purely photographic perspective, our family found 2012 far from boring, to say the least. It wasn’t without its share of trials, tears, and terrors, but it’s my fervent hope that the memories of those invigorating events caught on camera should outlast the emotional scars of the uglier incidents for years to come.
Some of the following subjects are from photo parades previously shared here on MCC. Some are from events that occurred prior to MCC’s inception on April 28, 2012. Some of these are sneak previews of photo parades that have been held in reserve until the conclusion of the 2012 Road Trip series, which is not represented in this gallery since it has its very own de facto home page.
That being said: the lighter side of 2012 from my limited vantage point appeared as follows. Enjoy!

Legal disclaimer for the record: though the above-displayed “2012 in Pictures” gallery is entirely comprised of photos I personally snapped, all other galleries on this site are the collaborative efforts of myself and my amazing wife, to whom I owe ongoing credit and endless gratitude for any number of contributions and general above-and-beyond support in 2012.
See you in 2013!
