Hot Shots of 2012

Top photographs taken by Snapshots and Needle Drops in 2012

Since “Obsessed with 2011” went over so well last year, I decided to include the photos in this year’s roundup of favourites.

2012 had me bouncing all over, hence there is some location variation. I’ve probably gone through background of these shots in their original posts (which can be accessed by clicking on the photographs or their titles), so I won’t bore you and just let you get straight to the pics!
