People, Places & Things has been appearing every week in the Lake Wylie Pilot for six years, thanks to readers who continue to share images of their activities, sightings and views of Lake Wylie. We often hear it’s one of our readers’ favorite parts of the paper. We agree. It’s fun and exciting to see what you see.
Some of these photos have appeared as cover art for special-section publications, and are used in the Pilot’s annual newcomer’s guide, Gateway to the Carolinas.
Photos have shown odd sightings such as goats sparring on a Lake Wylie island, the majestic sightings of the bald eagle and asked fellow readers, “Do you know what this is?” – for instance, when a birder sees an unusual species. We get to admire the beauty of our lake in sunrise and sunset photos through all four seasons, and share what our neighbors are up to. We really are lucky to live in this place and among these people ... and things.
Going through the 52 weeks of photos published in 2012 for People, Places & Things is a joy, but it’s a challenge to pick 10 favorites. Here’s what stood out for me this year, with a brief description of why.
Please keep the photos coming. Submit photos with a brief description, including where and when the photo was taken, and any other interesting information, to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it off at 8 Executive Court, Lake Wylie, SC 29710. Include a contact number.
