PhotoBlog 2009

Rather than attempt to add one photo every day, the intention is to add random photos as events occur so that this album will grow to become my photographic record of 2009. Photos will be added in reverse order so that the most recent images can be found at the beginning of the album. This collection of images representing the diverse subjects I have photographed during 2009 is now complete and I hope you enjoy reviewing the year as seen by my camera.
