In preparation for the WTA’s Northwest Exposure photo contest , I was reviewing my favorite pictures from this year, just like I did last year .
But there are just too many this year. I’ve been to so many gorgeous places, gone on so many amazing trips, I just have a really hard time reducing my set of photos to just a top 5. With a lot of heartrending, I think I can manage to cut it to a top 12.
