Winding Down: My Top Ten Photos of 2012

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Photos


It has become a tradition for me to wind down the year on my blog by posting some Top Ten Lists before the year ends. It makes me go back and look at what I have done and accomplished and it also makes me dwell in memories. Too often we forget about the things we did and accomplished throughout the year- often just bashing ourselves for not fulfilling all the wonderful new year’s resolutions from last year.  Maybe this makes you wanna do it too – if so – share :)


In the beginning of the year, right before CHA we did a little road trip and one stop was at Death Valley. It was such a cool trip and the landscape was just unbelievable.

This picture reminds me of the fortune that my great-aunt Margot survived a stroke and heart attack this year. This is a bit after it happened and it shows her recovered so much – it makes me still happy.

While stopping over in New Jersey in July, my brother-in-law took me on a bike ride. I loved it- riding on a Harley on streets in the States is pretty much a picture of freedom in my head…as well as a picture of a couple of friends in Germany I know too 😉

Amalfi Coast – up on a hill after a pretty steep hike – what a reward to see this view.

And another one from the Amalfi Coast – here on Capri. It was an amazing day with hubs – and this reminds me on that…plus- I dislike photos with myself – I prefer being behind the camera – and that one is actual accepted 😉

Memories of having a couple of evenings chatting and spending time together with my husband on a nice terrace in Rome.

This amazing double rainbow photo at Niagara will always remember me on this spectacular view and sight and afternoon with Barb in Canada!

I love this picture of a forest here in Hamburg- a wonderful walk on an autumn afternoon

And that one…I just love the decoration and the reflection in the window. It also reminds me of a wonderful day with my friend Julie in NYC.

Isn’t it amazing all those memories and emotions photos can trigger?…well probably not my photos in you – hahahha- but your own :)

Huge hugs
