Note: Flickr recently went through a massive server transition, and portions of the service are still being worked on. Among the problems is that mosaic thumbnails on Collections are not visible, which means my primary page here for showing groupings by year are missing those thumbnails. The links do work—only the thumbnails are missing, so you can still navigate into a year to view those photos.

This year's favorite photographic moments include the reaction on the face of my wife, Lori, when she realized she had received a brand new Canon 70D for her birthday; an impromptu visit to The Spaghetti Warehouse restaurant in Ybor City (near Tampa) when, as it turned out, it was their very last day in business (sad face); a flight on the Orlando Eye on International Drive; and perhaps most importantly, a shot of the historical building (formerly a hotel) in downtown Orlando where I signed the short sale papers to officially be rid of my condo property that was horrifically upside down on the mortgage.
