What better way to sum up 2013 than photos? While I still carry around a heavy DSLR, 2013 was definitely the year of the mobile, as I shift more of the light lifting photography to my mobile. In 2012 I got myself a decent Android smartphone that had a reasonable camera (Nexus Galaxy) and Instragram just came out with a version for Android, and that was the start of my mobile photography. Though I deliberately over-filter my photos, I find the mobile photography a much more interesting way for me to express how I see the world and to truly capture its beauty. My ideal DSLR camera would be one that runs on Android and has some sort of mobile connectivity, and there are already a few cameras out there that do that.
To give you a taste of my 2013, here are some of the highlights from the photos I took and uploaded to Instagram, going back in time.
