It’s a new year and a new decade!

Happy New Year 2010 to all my friends and readers!

I’ve been having fun reviewing various “Best Photos of 2009” lists and online galleries. There are WAY too many to share here (and I’m sure you’ve already found many on your own), so I thought that I would share one specific photo and then let you get back to your celebrations.

I actually hadn’t seen this one published during the past year, and I’m bummed I didn’t see it earlier because it is pretty awesome!! I love the colors and the contrast between them, the terrific dusting patterns, the shape of the toes and feet, and the subtle vignette. Any photo that can tell a great story using only the bottom 6″ of a person’s body gets two thumbs up in my book!

    I love the picture. Especially growing up doing gymnastics.

    Cool! I didn’t know that you did gymnastics when you were growing up… but it doesn’t surprise me. You’ve got the right “frame” for it. 🙂
