Theme Day: Best Shot of 2011

Evening @ The Guild

As we always do on January 1 each year, City Daily Photo Bloggers share with you our best shots from the previous year. Here is a photo from last February taken in the Wallingford neighborhood on a cold winter day when it was hailing. The cheerful lighted neon of the historic art deco era 45th Guild Theater could get anyone out of a blue funk :-). I didn't spend much time thinking about which photo to choose, so you might like to see the 50 Best of Set  picked by a computer algorithm as my "most interesting" shots of the year. Just click the page tab named Most Intertesting Shots 2011 above on the bar. And to see all your fave City Daily Photo Blogger's,  click here to view thumbnails for each participant's Best Shot from 2011. 

. . .and
Happy New Year 2012!
I took this shot of the Space Needle fireworks display last night from my street in Seattle. Wishing you a wonderful year ahead.

Enjoy the top photo because of the contrast of the gloomy appearing day with the brightly lighted marquee. Enjoy 2012!

One would be hard put to pick your best photo for the year, but that one is a winner for sure! Very cozy. I'm glad you are back among us.

I'm so glad to see you back and delighted by the vibrant picture. I know just where that is, quite near the home of my old pal Jessie on 48th.

Good to see you're back! I only moved here a few months ago, but have been following the blog for a couple years, so I was a little sad when the updates stopped!

Great shot of the space needle. I made it home just in time to see the fireworks from outside my apartment.
