Fiscal Memories

Whoever said that change is the only constant had this year in mind. I'm not one to reminisce through my past 12 months, but the previous dozen have set the standard for "New Year".
Luckily for me I record most of it and get to take a visual look back to see how I got to now.
We each have our annual memory, mine challenged with important passages, losses and gains, and beautiful time with friends and family.
The images here are not so much a representation of my photography, but a thank you to all who helped me pass through the year. Each friend is held closely, remembered for the time we spent, and for the year we have spent together.
I wish everyone a Happy New Year as we continue forward. Good health, laughter, love, and plenty of time to enjoy them all.
