The Top Photos of 2013

I always enjoy the end of the year’s ‘best of’ lists, particularly in photo-journalism. TIME’s 2013 top photos are especially compelling, featuring photos ranging from the protests this year in Istanbul and Cairo to an amazing shot of a Great White off the coast of Cape Town.

These pictures are certainly worth a thousand words.

The list inspired me to do some digging around in my own amateur photos. While I wish I was a better photographer, I’ll give a go at my own ‘top photos of 2013’, a collection of my final semester at St Andrews and the best photos of my travels this year!
