Yes !!! Finally, 2012 is here!!! so, this is the right time to look back, and see what i was doing 'vetti'ly ('useless'ly) in the 12 months / 54 weeks of 2011. Since i like carrying my camera to all places wherever i go, i thought it would be a good thing to look back 2011 using the pictures taken during those events / trips. Just to keep track of it more easily, tried to put it in the chronological order.
Before that, Tons of thanks for all my friends and people with whom i had opportunity to travel with.
i think 2011 has gone well, in-terms of photography. Hopefully, 2012 is more Better!!!!
