Best of 2011

It is a little late but here it is, my best/favorite images of 2011. I went through my folder of images that I have filed to my various editors/clients (more than 1200 images) and put together this collection of images that I dug the most. This year I shot approximately 160 assignments for 10 different wires, magazines and newspapers. Enjoy!
