Theme Day: Photo of the Year 2011


It's the first of the month as well as the first of the year. So that means it is Theme Day here at City Daily Photo. The theme is Photo of the Year for 2011 and I choose the photo of the San Francisco de Asis Misson Church in Taos that I posted in March of last year.

Treat yourself and check out of the best of 2011 by some wonderful photographers:
