Michigan – March 18, 2012
View from the Volkswagen lounge on the second-to-last day of NAIAS 2012.
I’ve been knee-deep in boxes for the past few days, but I set aside some time to work through a year’s worth of photos (and as usual, it took a lot longer than expected). Here’s a quick summary of the year I spent in New England — I tried to model it on this collage I did of my year in Arizona, but I had a much harder time narrowing down my photos so it’s a bit longer and more dense.

Summer 2011: Delaware, United States and the Atlantic Ocean
They may be worlds apart, but the basic principle is still the same. Kick off your flip-flops and relax in the hot sand. Happy summer!
Around this time three years ago, I was traveling around Spain on my spring break from the University of Leeds. British students get a much longer spring break than the United States — around four weeks, if I remember correctly. I took this photo at Real Alcazar, one of my favorite places in Sevilla. Time flies, doesn’t it?
This may be the first week in 2011 that we haven’t had a snow-day-causing, traffic-crippling, work-canceling snowstorm, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t had snow. This morning I woke up to a winter wonderland, where every tree was covered in fluffy, white snow. I couldn’t resist snapping a few photos before grabbing the shovel and getting to work. (You can always view more snow photos on my flickrstream.)
Gravity, release me
And don’t ever hold me down
Now my feet won’t touch the ground

I’m counting down the days until my move, but that doesn’t mean I won’t miss living here. I’ve put together a short summary in photographs — click here to view in full size.
