“2012 In Photos” – A collection of galleries

By Matthew Saville on December 9th 2012

It’s that time of year again.  Time for all of the international press to start publishing their equivalent to a “best-of” series of photographs.  Usually, they call it “The year in photos” or similar.  As always, 2012 has been a pretty incredible year, visually speaking.  Here are a handful of galleries for you to enjoy!

DISCLAIMER:  some press-related images are graphic and “NSFW”.  (Not safe for work)  If you are easily offended or have a weak stomach, proceed with caution.  I didn’t see anything too graphic (or pornographic, for that matter) in my viewing of these galleries, but you may have different standards…

Take care,
