Here are my favourite photos of 2009, as decided (sometimes with an LJ-vote right here) at the end of each month. These aren't necessarily what I think are the best photos, artistically, but my personal favourites for a variety of reasons, even if it's just remembering the fun I was having when I took them.
I'm glad I did this exercise -- even though in at least a couple of months, I had to go out right at the end of the month and snap like crazy to get anything half-decent when I realised I was out of time. That worked better in March than in November, I think.
If I had to plump for an overall favourite, it would probably be either the Mini, or the piano. Even though the suspension bridge photo got me on the front page of Flickr, I still think those others are better photos.
