As we’re slowly edging closer to the end of the year, it’s time for another of the classic summaries: A Picture A Day 2017.

I started taking a picture every day on January 1st, 2013. By the end of 2017, I’ve posted 1461 pictures, but taken far more than that. From time to time, I’ve toyed with the idea of updating the A Picture A Day calendar to allow for multiple pictures to be posted on a single day. But I suspect that one glimpse into my life per day is more than enough for most people.

Like I do every year, I’d strongly recommend, nay, urge everyone of you to start taking a picture every day as well. Looking at the pictures is a great memory booster, and I often remember other events from the same day as well. Most of them are quite fond memories, which is perhaps why I go on about everyone having to take their own pictures every year.

But enough about that. Here are a few selected, and randomly ordered, highlights from 2017’s A Picture A Day:

As you can tell from the pictures, my year has mainly consisted of spending time with my family, and looking at sunrises and sunsets. My life is pretty average, and for that I’m thankful.

Curious about previous year’s summaries? They are all here: 2016, 2015, 2014, and 2013.
