First off, happy new year to those reading this (and those who aren't.)
I can definitely say 2012 was one heck of a year. It's during this year that I realized that photography is a much bigger part of my life than I had originally figured. Learned a whole lot in Street Photography, and still even more to learn.
So I figured I'd start 2013 by dedicating close to a month to that. I'm going to New York with the sole purpose of shooting on the streets. Then after a week I'm heading back to my second home, San Francisco, where, aside from a lot of shooting as well, I'll get to see family and friends who I haven't seen for a year. Hopefully this'll turn out well.
In other news, this shot below got shortlisted for the National Geographic photo contest 2012, 'places' category. I could not have been more excited. I don't really have high hopes to win anything, and trust me when I say this, it was frickin' amazing just to have been shortlisted. This being said, the website said that the results would be announced on Dec 15th, 2012. Then they changed it to 'December', and now we're Jan 2nd, and they still haven't. Oh well...
