2012 Photo of the Year: Lola Girl


I greatly appreciate all those who followed my Photo of the Week series in 2012. Your ‘likes’ and star ratings helped select the 12 monthly finalists from which determined the No. 1 Readers’ Choice worthy of the 2012 Photo of the Year award.

Lola Girl

Lola Girl of 16/52 Whatever Lola wants … takes No. 1 honors with 33 ‘likes’ and 3 five-star ratings. She won April Photo of the Month honors paws down.

Beauty of 39/52 Beauty and the beasts was a close second with 32 ‘likes’ and 3 five-star ratings.

My dying friend in 21/52 Singin’ the blues came in third with 29 ‘likes’ and 5 five-star ratings.

I thank you and  Lola thanks you for your readership, your friendship and your WordPress kinship.

We wish a healthy, prosperous and Happy Blogging New Year to all!

26/52 Charlie and friends


I met Charlie and friends in May on a drive through the remote Clay County, Indiana, countryside. Charlie’s the mule (in the center) without the jackass attitude. He was quite curious, allowing me time to get a couple of good photos. Big Dan the Clydesdale, on the other hand, was a real horse’s ass during the whole visit.

I learned their names when the rancher stepped out on his veranda (thankfully without his rifle) and yelled, “I charge a quarter a picture.”

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.
