2013 Year in Review: Part 1

I’ve always found these year in review posts to be kind of cheesy, but it’s been a great exercise for me to go back through the year and see things from a bird’s-eye-view. So, I thought I’d share it with you! Hurtling through the year at break-neck speed doesn’t really give you a chance to look at the things you have done, and oftentimes you’ll feel like you’re getting nowhere. It’s a great thing to do no matter what industry you are in. So, here we go… WelkinLight Photography, 2013 in review part 1!

My wife and I made the decision late last year to leave our day jobs and travel for a time. By January 2013 we had visited Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Malaysia, then made our way down to Australia to see my family. We spent the first two months of the year seeing some of Australia before coming back to take the plunge into making WelkinLight Photography a full time buisiness. Here are some frames from that time.

We were greeted with Australian sunsets…
