Pictures of the year: Part one

Advertiser photographers were once again out and about in the Macarthur region capturing the highs, lows and big blows in 2017.

From a professional dancer who returned to the region in the hope of inspiring youngsters, to a 70-year-cricketer who decided 2017 would be the year he called it quits – the photographers were there to capture every moment.

Photographers were there when bell ringers descended on churches and they were there as a 50-year-old mother endured the final weeks of pregnancy.

They were even there to capture the excitement of a group of residents at Carrington, days before the group headed back to high school.

So make yourself a cuppa or pour yourself a glass of wine, and enjoy a scroll through part one of the best pictures of the year.

And stay tuned for part two.
