Judi (Anderson) Harrison, 52 Year crowned: 1978 On how she got into pageants: "Someone followed me around at party and told me I had a beautiful smile and that I should try out for Miss Hawaii USA. He was a dentist. Back then, it was, what you see is what you get. I didn't have a coach or someone to tell me what to wear or what to say. I wore a muumuu type dress with leis that my mom had designed." Photographed on June 18, 2011.

After an epic news year, it’s hard to believe that LightBox is less than a year old. Since the New Year is a fitting time for resolutions and self-assessments, we wanted to look back at which posts our readers viewed the most in 2011.

We began LightBox with the idea of engaging readers in a dialogue about the culture of photography and educating people on how images are made. Herewith, a countdown of our most popular posts.

Please let us know what you’d like to see more of in 2012. We thank you for visiting the blog and look forward to your continued support in the New Year. Our resolution is to bring you even more great photography in 2012, and continue to inspire and inform you each day.

Cheers,

The Editors of LightBox

PS: Look out for a special New Year’s Eve post that will go live at midnight!
