Best of 2013

It is time again when we are inundated with a slew of best photos of the year/year in review selections from all the major photography giants. Luckily for you, I have attempted to compile most of the major ones here for you to enjoy. I have also included a small set of my own photos that I believe are my favorites from this year. Take a gander and enjoy the best of photography (and other tidbits) — from fashion to food to riveting photojournalism. I’m sure there are a lot of lists I missed, but these are a good dose of what photographers have been doing this year, and hopefully enough to give out ideas and inspiration for the next.
