Pic(k) of the Week: 2017's 52-pic rotogravure

There has been no year-end bloggy navel-gazing here at YFGF. Until today.

The blog feature, Pic(k) of the Week, is a weekly series of photos, taken (or noted) by me, that I post every Saturday, that often, but not always, have a good fermentable as the subject. Pictured below are the fifty-two images that I featured during 2017. Click on a thumbnail to view the image in its full glory, accompanied by its backstory.

Of the fifty-two images, twenty-nine concerned beer in some fashion; nine were photos of an actual beer; four were taken at a brewery; two were selfies (although beer-centric); three were of cask ale; and one was of a glass of wine. For comparison, in 2016, thirty-two of the fifty-two photos I selected were of beer, of which ten were photos taken at breweries.

All of my 19,774 public photographs and images * can be seen at Flickr. Additionally, I have an Instagram account, under my name: tcizauskas/. There, it's a photo a day, but fewer are good-fermentable-focused than here.

Tomorrow, the first Saturday of 2018, there'll be a new Pic(k) of the Week and the series will begin anew.
