It's hard to believe how fast 2009 has gone by, but what's even harder to believe is just how much went on! Looking back through my photos in Lightroom, I was amazed at what I had photographed through the year, because I had simply forgotten about it. Overall, I took approximately 147 photos that I liked, and of those 147, I chose 30 that I would consider my best. Of these 30, only 15 made the cut for this entry.
More amazing than these photos though, I look at my growth. Being an artist, there is never a time when you stop learning and improving. If anyone ever tells you otherwise, then they are a fool! Photography is forever changing with the times, and we as people are always growing, learning, and maturing. As such, I love looking through my work and seeing the growth that is has, as I've gone through the year.
I can definitely tell you that there are some projects that will be worked on more in the coming year, and that there are other things that will be re-done. Why? Because I feel I can improve upon them! And sometimes, when you revisit an idea, you make it even better.
So, here are the photos that made the final cut for my Best of 2009! They are in chronological order, starting from January 2009, and going through to now.
