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…
Last but not least, another one from Buzzfeed.com’s animal photos: Photobombed by a sloth? Best photobomb of 2012!!!
