My Top 36 Photographs of 2012

Here are the 36 photos that conclude my 2012...  I want to thank my parents for supporting my hobby, my brother Rowell for sharing his PC, & my photography colleagues in PHG5 (at least 8 of these images were not possible if I didn't join in the group. 

Salamat sa magagandang ilaw, anino, kulay at hugis, tamang oras at panahon, at mga subjects na bihirang mag sama sama sa isang segundo sa iisang frame pero I was there - nakita ko yon!  At nahuli ko sila!  Salamat sa kapangyarihang maihinto ang oras. Salamat din sa ibang alagad ng potograpiya, amateur or pro, at sa kanilang mga larawan na aking ginagawang inspirasyon.  - Bernard
