2011 in pictures

Posted on January 1st, 2012 by Paul Stainthorp

This isn’t really a work/library-related blog post.

The past year, for me, has been framed—literally—by a friend’s giving me—on long-term loan—his old digital SLR camera (a Nikon D70s). I’ve now had the camera for a full 12 months, and I’ve been using it to document my year. That’s my interest in photography: not to take particularly better photos (technically or artistically), but to get a better record of the places I go and the things I do.

Here’s my 2011, in photos – an arbitrary five pics per month. Happy new year.


New year’s walks, and a trip to Edinburgh for Haggis and Mash.
