Project 365: The 2011 Finale

I'm ending Project 365 for 2011 with a whimper. Which sadly reflects the status of my participation most of the year. I just had no idea how crazy furlough was going to be, or how difficult to post on a regular basis. To say nothing of totally dropping the ball with the basic premise of a photo-a-day. I didn't even manage to get the final post in the actual year of 2011 :(

BUT... that said, I did stick with it to the very end!

So here you have it folks, the final photos of 2011!

Stuck in traffic.
The story of our life this week as we dealt with yet more paperwork.

Fireworks!
New Year's Eve here is like 4th of July in the U.S. We walked a block over to the lake and had a great vantage point for viewing the fireworks. We could turn 360 degrees and see fireworks in every direction! While the city does have a (usually) decent show, private citizens and clubs put on some pretty impressive displays as well. We stayed down at the lake for about 20 minutes, then walked home and watched the fireworks in our own neighborhood.

Having only two photos for the week is about par for the course this year. Hoping I can do better in 2012! Anyone care to join us this year? It's a great way to (1) photo journal your year, and (2) share your life in pictures with friends and family.

Happy New Year. From stuck in traffic to fireworks...what events. Here is hoping your 2012 is amazing. Hope to see you back with us on Project 365.

I would love to join you, but I´m too afraid I wouldn´t follow through. I tried "Foto Friday´s" for a while, but kept forgetting to take some photos. And most weeks are pretty boring around here, I wouldn´t know what to post. But I do think it´s a great idea and will be checking that website out. who knows maybe I´ll change my mind.
Happy New Year!

P.S. We do fireworks here too. It was pretty loud, but fun.

I think finishing is just as important as trying to get a picture every day! I know I had many a week where I was lacking all seven days! But it is nice to have a gimps into the year that has past even if it may not be all 365 days....

I think for me it is the shared experiences we all get looking at each other pictures and getting a view of how we all live and love through out the year!

Blessings my friend.
Looking forward to next year in pictures with all my fellow 365'rs!

Blessings

I think I might seek out a 52 week project...I know I'd never be able to keep up with a photo a day!
Happy New Year!

Always count on your posts no matter when they appear. The cultural insights are interesting even, or especially so, for us 'argentinos de corazón'.
Will 2012 be a year of new houses for both of us?
¡Bendiciones!

Ditto what Rita said. I look forward to the comments just as much as the pix. It is so good to see Argentina through the eyes of one who did not grow up there.
