2011: A Year In Photos.

-Written and photographed by Paul O’Connell of POC Photo (Contributor, Seattle)

As 2011 draws to an end I wanted to reflect back on all the burlesque my eyes had the pleasure of seeing. I went to over 50 shows and took over 15,000 photos. My camera took me to Seattle of course, and also Austin, New Orleans, Portland and Las Vegas. I thought it appropriate to do a year end favorite photos blog. I initially picked over 300 photos but I knew I had to narrow it down, something that’s always difficult. I asked Jessica Price to help bring it down to a nice number of 50 (actually we arrived at 52 photos in all, our largest posting ever).

Here’s hoping next year will be even more fun and adventurous for all you Burlesquers out there. Have a Happy & Titillating New Year! ~ POC
