Capturing the mundane to create interesting stories

Year 2011 in Pictures

S-00Bestof2011-Cover

A compilation of my personal favorite photos of 2011



As I mention yesterday, I have a very good year in 2011, photography-wise. From more than 12,500 photos that I took this year, I make more than 365 photoblog posts. And now, I’m going to shrink them into 12 of my favorite photos — based on the month I publish them.


S-01Bestof2011-Sith-Lord-001DSC 3575-martosc

January — title: Sith Lord. It’s not everyday I see this kind of scene (original post).


S-02Bestof2011-Carbon-Footprint-001DSC 4076-martosc

February — title: Carbon Footprint. This photo reminds me to be kind to our mother earth (original post).


S-03Bestof2011-No-Train-001DSC 4971-martosc

March — title: No Train. I took this photo three days after 11 March Earthquake. People were stranded because the train system was crippled by power shortage (original post).


S-04Bestof2011-Faceless-001DSC 5687-martosc

April — title: Faceless. I cannot really put my finger on why I like this photo so much. I just like it. This is one of the first posts in the new blog (original post).


S-05Bestof2011-Charity-Concert-01-DSC 7094-martosc

May — title: Waiting for the Light. One of my defining moments, when I learn the possibility of being creative by shooting in manual mode (original post).


S-06Bestof2011-Three-Wise-Ladies-001DSC 8352-martosc

June — title: Three Wise Ladies. I just love the symmetry, and of course, the accidental pose. This might be my favorite photo of 2011 (original post)


S-07Bestof2011-Faces004-DSC 9454-martosc

July — title: Bold. I just love the bold charisma coming out from him (original post).


S-08Bestof2011-Perfect-Date-001DSC 9577-martosc

August — title: Perfect Date. I like it because, well, it seems like my kind of perfect date (original post)


S-09Bestof2011-Skinny-Silhouette-002DSC 1200-martosc

September — title: Skinny Silhouette. I love the lighting, and this is the first published photo that was taken with my favorite lens (original post)


S-10Bestof2011-Window-seat-002DSC 2832-martosc

October — title: Window Seat. I like this photo for so many reasons, one of them is because it was taken in South Korea (original post)


S-11Bestof2011-Notitle003-002DSC 3485-martosc

November — title: No Title. I just love the lines, curves, and the lighting (original post)


S-12Bestof2011-Guiding-light-002DSC 4584-martosc

December — title: Guiding Light. I love the lighting on this one (original post)



Again, 2011 has been a great year for me. I’m looking forward to 2012. I hope I can travel to more places, see more new things, and be able to capture them on my camera.

Thank you very much for your visits and comments in 2011. I hope you enjoy the photos and stories, and I’m looking forward to see you again here next year.



Happy New Year 2012, and see you next year!



*Many places, Earth, 2011

    Oh, I can’t believe how pretty these pictures are. I’m sooo going to print out your photos and promote them! Apparently, this is one of the extra features I was marrying into that I didn’t know. And I got to realize how surprisingly good you are in it on a daily basis. Am soo proud of you! xoxo..
