Year 2011 was no doubt a year for photo enthusiasts. With an unprecedented growth in sales of DSLR’s and mobile phones, tablets and computers with digital cameras, I doubt if there ever was any other time in mankind’s history when there were just as many people snapping away photos all the time.

Looking back at the year just passed, still nursing a hangover of the holidays, I was struck with the number of subjects I was able to cover – from birding to weddings and beauty tilts to travel destinations; from the time I had a glaucoma attack and subsequent laser procedure down to baby pictures and awesome adventure rides and treks in far-flung areas.

Thus I decided to compile my favorites and share them with you for a brief replay of gerryruiz images of 2011.

I hope you like it. Cheers!

Our eldest sister, Nieves Erlinda Ruiz-Mateo, celebrated her 78th birthday last May 29, 2011 with colleagues from the Leyte Normal School and from the University of the Philippines Tacloban (where she once taught), family, kin members and friends.

It was also our 3-month old grandson, Kenji’s first chance to meet her Lola – the eldest of a brood of seven Ruizes (with me being the youngest).

As expected, I had to snap some shots. Here’s what I came up with… comics!
