52 Pic(k) Up in 2018.

Hummus and (strong) Lager

Since 29 August 2009, on four-hundred and eighty-four consecutive Saturdays, I have done this, here at YFGF:
Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of photos taken (or noted) by me, posted on Saturdays, and often, but not always, with a good fermentable as the subject.

The photo above, of a beer and hummus, was the first I duly mentioned. Since then, a plurality of the selections has been of beer, breweries, brewers, and that ilk. Recently, however, that emphasis has evolved to more of a photographic bent, often now not necessarily of a "good fermentable."

Here's a quick look at how my selections have changed since three years ago, in 2015.

The figures don't sum 52 per year, as a category may be a subset of another: such as breweries also under beer, food also under brewpub/brewery, etc. But the trend has unmistakenly been away from one of sole fermentables.

Arlington Crepuscule

Since 12 April 2012, beginning with "Arlington Crepuscule," I have also been uploading to Instagram. All above provisos apply.

But enough of this photographic solipsism. Here is a recapitulation of the fifty-two images I chose as Pic(k)s of the Week in 2018. Clicking on any of the thumbnails will get you to the image and its story.

Later today, Pic(k) of the Week refreshes for 2019. And so it goes.
