My best photos of 2012

Having wound down enough to look back on 2012, it has been an amazing year in all sorts of ways.

So here are 50 of my favourite photographs I’ve taken this year. I’ve chosen my favourite shots rather than going for reportage, but it includes weddings, births, national spectacles and Brightonian pagentry…

In terms of my photography, it’s a year of two halves  – the first half is dominated by photos taken with the iPhone, edited and posted on Instagram, which was a bit of an obsession. Then in the middle of the year I got a new DSLR – a Nikon D5100 – and the best shots are mostly with that, and one or two Nokia Lumia 920 shots – the phone I got at the end of the year.

Anyway – I hope you enjoy them. Let me know what you think…
