Happy New Year 2009 / Theme Day

Happy New Year!

While 2008 had a lot of highlights, it also left a lot of room for improvement. Here's hoping that 2009 is a great year in all the ways that are most important to you!

Not only is today New Years Day but it is also the first City Daily Photo Theme Day of the year. The theme this month is: Best photo of the year 2008.

This was a tough one for me. What criteria could I use to choose the photo? Most viewed? Most commented? In the end I just went through the images and picked one that's a favorite. To see what the other City Daily Photobloggers around the world have chosen as their Best of 2008, click the link below:

Gum machines! Darn, why did't I think of that? You're opening my eyes to what's around me. What an excellent choice for the theme.
You have so many that I would have included today but I love the nostalgia of this one. Happy New Year.

I'm glad you selected your favorite. It reminds me of childhood and small towns and lazy days.
Wishing you a very happy 2009!
PS I'm enjoying your new blog very much.

I just love this shot! You have photographed so many ordinary things... and always make them look magical and unique. Heres to a peaceful, happy and prosperous new year!

Really nice - the machine and that shadow. I think you are right in choosing a photo you love. I found it difficult. Actually didn't leave myself time with the surprise of the new dogs - andthanks so much for your kind comments on that. They are doing great.

Wishing you and your family all the very best for 2009, Keith.
