EOS-Weekend & 2012 Review

A great way to end 2012, with photos from CosHarbour, the stinker, enjoying time away in the sunshine. How cruel is it that he sends these knowing full well we are sitting in the snow?! Nonetheless, wonderful and blissful photos! Many thanks.

A look back at 2012………..

The biggest story for me was The Belfry, the home in Katonah that was slated for demolition. It was a many-part series and brought comments from both sides of the aisle.

The story that was the most fun was This One’s for You, Gloria, the saga of trying to give money to IHOP. That was a three-parter, with a response from the peeps at IHOP even.

The most sentimental, a Happy Birthday to my friend Diana, with a look back at our ‘colledge dayz.’

Of course, there was the ‘don’t go there‘ topic for me, politics, in a post called Sigh, that elicited angry comments from some waskily-wabbit liberals.

Can’t forget Dawg, and more Dawg.

We high-tailed it out of dodge in January for Palm Springs and the Salton Sea. Then a month in South America, which was fun fun fun even though I fell and became the American Citizen Cane.

Rhode Island meant gardens and the ocean, plus some great Kubota moments. No Rhode Island post would be complete without lobster fishing, this year learning a new lesson, using cat food as bait!

Bedford meant flower gardens and day trips to nearby sights.

And of course, what would EOS be without the Weekend Edition, with YOUR photos playing a huge role in this blog.

But here are a few of my photos that I feel represents what this blog is all about – not necessarily my best photos, but photos of what I write about that gets your attention…. Humor, travel, life through my lens.

Of course, no year-end review would be complete without a nod to Sound Beacher. Please take a much deserved bow!

Also, Mr. EOS’s first ever iPhone photo was a winner and set the sunset bar for excellence.

Thanks for coming along for the ride and hanging in there, despite my long break mid-summer. I honestly and truly love your company and appreciate all the effort each and every one of you takes to stop by.

Here’s to 2013! We’ll call it The Year of Construction.

  1. gee whiz, EOS, what a way to sum up the year! The pictures truly are among the best and remind us of why we read your blog with such pleasure. Thanks for bringing us along for the ride.

  2. great year-end review. i agree with bob, the salton sea photo is powerful. The video you posted of that day was also incredible.

    i’m normally not a blog reader but you keep bringing me back. life through your lens is pretty darn fabulous.

    where are you throwing the travel dart for 2013? happy new year from us to you all.

  3. Thanks for the great picture review of 2012. I always enjoy your blog and all the reader’s comments. Sure glad your break wasn’t permanent.

    A Happy New Year to everyone!

  4. And thank you EOS for the tremendous work and effort you expended in behalf of your readers. We may not be many in numbers, but we do appreciate what you do for us.

    I am sending this post to my favorite printer (as in HP)to produce a private label 2013 Monthly EOSCalendar (under fair-use doctrine.)

    Thanks again, and best wishes for blogging on in 2013.

    1. EarthImage: You and Sound Beacher have been incredibly generous with your photos, sharing them here. It’s a treat for me, and for the readers.

      As for numbers, it’s odd. I actually have quite a healthy readership when I look at the stats, but those who choose to comments, then we get to the “not so many.”

  5. I always appreciate this little corner of the blogosphere where I can take a break and refresh with things that have real human meaning and beauty; you know “important stuff”. Thanks for your dedication, sharing and tolerance, EOSr. Happy New Year!

  6. What a great EOS 2012 retrospective! I remember it well…
    Surely, like all your fans, I appreciate your always tender and generous, and often hilarious efforts and images. Whether it’s about travel, travails or a thoughtful tribute,
    you are unpredictable to say the least!
    Happy 2013 to the EOS generations and all who stop by.
