Twenty eleven has signaled a lot for me both personally and professionally. In looking back over the photos from the first half of this year, I was a little bit amazed at how much had happened and how many wonderful people I had the privilege of including in my life. While this is by no means a complete recount of the first six months of 2011 it has certainly served as a reminder to me of all the wonderful things that have happened and I hope it gives you a fun sense of some of my favorite images of the year.

I started this year with a photo resolution to shoot more images of people I didn’t know – more street photography, if you will. I felt then, as I do now, that images of people speak the strongest. While I didn’t see too many of those images in this set from the first half of the year, I did run across some of my first attempts. Many were not much to be proud of now, but in terms of where I was then, it was fabulous. I worked hard and if you check back tomorrow for the second half of the year, I am sure you will see that some things have changed. :)

Do you have resolutions for this year? Do you remember what yours were for last year?
