Reader Photos: Best of Southern California Moments for 2012

Picking the 12 best photos over a year is no easy feat. There are so many photos, and so many different types of images, that finding a balanced set can become a challenge. In looking at the year’s images, I started with the best of each month’s photos, then tried to find a balance: macro, wide, color, black and white and even double exposures.

The result is a gallery that allowed me to revisit some of my favorite photos over the course of the year — Jordan Dunn’s image of a worker cleaning the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Daniel Schaefer’s portrait of a magician in the Magic Castle, a great double-exposure from Venice by Armin Adams, and one of my absolute favorites, Jay Thornton’s image of U.S. Marines with a puppy at Twentynine Palms. And that only brings us to April.

There have been so many great photos over the course of the year, and it was extremely difficult in some cases to pick only one image to represent a month – just go back to the “Best of” posts for April or July to see what I’m talking about.

I can’t believe it’s been two years – that’s more than 730 photos we’ve selected so far as Southern California Moments. We’re looking forward to seeing all of your images in 2013 for the third year of Southern California Moments. Please keep them coming  here or through our L.A. Times Community group on Flickr. Each day’s photo is posted on LA Now and on our Los Angeles Times Local News Facebook page.

Is there a photo you think should have been included? Something that should be left out? A photographer in the community we should take a look at? Give a heads up in the comments.

Submit your photos here or to our Flickr group.
