Not that anyone asked ...

Not that anybody asked, but I thought I’d toss up a couple of my picks for the best photos of the year.

This image is of Mary McHugh at the grave of her fiancé, Sgt James J. Regan at Arlington National Cemetery. He was from Manhasset, New York. Sgt Regan was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq.

After a record drought year, this past fire season was one of the most destructive and costly in Southern California history, photographer Karen Tapia-Anderson took this photo of 12 firefighters trapped atop a ridge in Orange County after flames jumped the road sending the fire up the hillside, prompting the firefighters to deploy their fire shelters. "We just remained calm, everyone did," one firefighter said after he was checked out by paramedics. All 12 firefighters were treated at the scene, none of them wanted to be sent to the hospital. 

A photo of the gruesome aftermath of Pakistan’s oppositional leader Benazir Bhutto’s assassination, the suicide attack left more then 20 people dead.

My roommate took me to a house party in which the owner of the house had this insane record collection. I try to live minimally, not buying more than I need, but when I saw the amount of Salsa vinyl this guy had, I went nuts. After that night, I made it a point to try to amass a Salsa Vinyl collection bigger than the one I saw at the party. I guess I had Salsa envy. Thus began the Salsa Arms Race. Check out what I've found lately at Amoeba's World Music vinyl section...Ha! take that, Salsa Vinyl Collection Guy!
