Pic Of The Year – 2013

p3652013-picOfTheYear01

Even if I didn’t reach a full year of daily picture-taking, I snapped some wonderful shots over the last 12 months, and today I’m taking a look back at the best.  If you’ve only looked at the Pic of the Week posts in this series, keep an eye out – you’ll see some new shots in the nominations below that haven’t appeared here before.  Also, since we’re sharing this anniversary wrap-up day with the airing of the Academy Awards, I figured I’d take a cue from them and present this post in categories, before getting to the winner.  I will spare you the jokes and musical numbers, though there might a couple of small speeches.

Be sure to read your hover-text for further explanations (or my usual, hilarious commentary).  Now, on with the show!

Best Picture of the Year:

Well, in a shocking upset, the Mark Mushakian academy is at a tie!  *chaos ensues*  Please, please – calm down!  *shouts of “it’s a sham!” from the crowd*  Please, I simply can’t decide on a favorite, and so we’re turning the matter over to the audience.  What do YOU think?
