It is quite surprising how fast Christmas 2012 came and went. All the hustle and bustle. The expenditure on gifts. The traffic and crazy driving on the roads. The parking situation at the malls. And in a flash, it was all over.

As we wind down the last days on the year, I just wanted to share a few photos I took during this time.

I should also mention the huge relief I have been feeling lately since I made the conscious effort to return to being an amateur photographer. Having the freedom to only shoot for fun is quite liberating.
