Here are my favourite photographs I took in each month of 2023
Edited to add: I took all photos with my cell phone, a Samsung Galaxy S32. All photos are unedited, with the exception of the monster truck photo, which was minimally cropped to remove the railing at the bottom of the photo (I was sitting behind the railing when I took the photograph).

Dinosaurs at play, London, ON
My daughter and my nephew both dressed up as dinosaurs for Halloween, not knowing they dressed up the same until my brother and I sent pictures back and forth. When we went to London in November, my nephew asked my daughter to bring her dinosaur suit so they could run around the neighbourhood. She happily obliged.
I didn’t take any nature photos in November, but I think this one is worthy of the lot in any case
Liam the cat, cozy in wintertime
Despite our mild weather this December, I didn’t take any nature photos… I was too busy trying to catch up on evertyhing I procrastinated on doing for the holidays. But again… this adorableness is worthy of the lot
And a few extra photos I just had to share.
This one is just so you don’t get the wrong idea about weather where I live… This is a more realistic photo for January (and February, and March, and April…)
Another photo from the Kingston Fall Fair, because these people are just incredible. The one in yellow is Kassie Boone, one of only 2 women in the world who does FMX Trick jumps over the 75-foot gap. She’s from Ontario! She actually lets go of the bike completely during this trick, for a fraction of a second after kicking her feet back. She’s pretty incredible.

And finally, an extra photo from August, because this sky… . This is at Lions Civic Gardens, in Kingston, ON.
