I didn't try to look through all my zillions of photos for the best or even representative ones. I took a quick look at some of the folders from each month and grabbed one.
The first photograph was taken in January when my St. Francis statue was sporting a hat and stole courtesy of the snow. The second shot is from a February sunset and and shot below is from March. I think of the shot below as my March Madness photo (a term that NCAA basketball fans will be familiar with).
The next shot is one I took in April while walking in the North Carolina Museum's Art Park in Raleigh, NC.
My May shot below was taken at the top of my driveway looking into what I call my secret garden because it's fairly private in the back.
My June shot below is of a dragonfly that was hanging on to my car's antenna.
The shot I took below was the last day of July and was taken at a hotel pond where my daughter and I were going for a walk near the Greensboro, NC airport. We were waiting for a delayed airplane bringing my sister to a family reunion we were going to in Blowing Rock, NC.
The next shot was taken on August the first, at Moses H. Cone Memorial Park, where my sister and I were walking before the family gathered at my Aunt's house in Blowing Rock, NC.
My September shot was taken in the NC Botanical garden in Chapel Hill, NC.
The heron below is one I photographed in October while walking at a lake near where I live in the triangle area of NC.
I photographed the cardinal below, in November, through my bedroom door which looks out on my deck.
The December shot below was taken in my home office/den last week. That is where I work most of the time except when I have to be on site at the Durham office, and it is also where I blog. On the right side of the shot is my computer table which is mostly out of the camera site, and the left hand side shows a little bit of the day bed where I can break for a quick nap, I mean stretch out while proofreading work, in my home office.

It's coming on Christmas - They're cutting down trees - They're putting up reindeer - And singing songs of joy and peace - Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on . . . From River by Joni Mitchell
The shot above was taken in November of 2009. The shot below was taken in March of 2009. We actually had a tiny bit of snow over the weekend but it didn't amount to much so my seasonal shots are from the beginning of the year. All the photographs were taken in the NC piedmont where I live.
The last shot was taken in January of 2009.
I started with Joni's song River because I can't stop singing it. It's not like the song is about Christmas, it's not. But since I can't stop singing it, I'll end with some more of it.
I wish I had a river so long - I would teach my feet to fly - Oh I wish I had a river - I could skate away on

Our little snow Friday didn't amount to much before turning to rain but the snow flakes were enormous. If anyone has tips for catching good shots of big fat snowflakes please let me know. The shape fell apart in this shot but it was better than others I tried.

My daughter was home for a visit this weekend and we went downtown Friday to look at the completed new old Fayetteville Street. It was fun to discover after posting this that fellow Raleigh blogger Mojo posted Fayetteville Street at night on his My World post this week.
I wrote a prior post about how this street was originally a street, converted to a pedestrian mall in the 1970s and then the mall was ripped up and turned back into a street recently.
The first shot is of Memorial Auditorium which is at one end of the street and the second shot is of the Capitol Building which is at the other end of the street.
There was a street musician playing carols (right hand side of shot above). Because it was very cold, windy and gray we stopped for some hot chocolate in the place below.
After hot chocolate, we turned around and headed back towards memorial auditorium where we parked.
On either side of the street, at the memorial auditorium end, there is a new sculpture of some kind.
Below is a close-up of the sculpture on one side of the street. My daughter nicknamed it, upside down ice skates
We got back in our car and drove past Christ Espiscopal Church, below, before driving home.
My daughter was my chaffeur which was nice for a change. She was even good natured about me snapping her picture while she drove.

I couldn't think of anything this week to show you from My World which is why I went with these ornaments created by a chilly night and a bird bath.

- My original site, Carver's Sight or is that Site, was inspired by reading the blogs of people who I got to know through the Melanoma Patient's Information Page (MPIP). As time has gone on, I find myself talking as much about gardening, photography, and other random thoughts as I do about melanoma follow up. I am happy about that. I have set up an additional site, Carver Cards, which is primarily a photoblog.
