Top 24 Photos of 2013

Last year I did a post called my “Top 12 Photos of 2012”. 2012 was an amazing year for me with many changes; many improvements and a few challenges. I intended to do a “Top 13 of 2013” but after going through the over 11,000 images I made in 2013 and the total flood of memories I just couldn’t reduce the number to 13. 2013 was practically one adventure after another and there was just no way to get too specific. From over 150 finalists I picked 24 images that kind of summarized the year. I also intentionally left out some of the images/memories that I had previously written stories about and some/many memories that were very special but too personal to post.

Like last year, this is not intended to be my best photos of 2013. I am aware that some of the photos presented here are technically pretty horrible and even though my cameras were used to make all of these images I didn’t always push the shutter. This is simply a compilation of images that remind me of some of my favorite moments in last year. I also know this kind of post is terribly self-indulgent. I hope you will forgive me that (and the click throughs at the bottom of the page) too.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
