Funny, we both had the same idea, but the difference is that I would love to include all of these in my favourites. Thank you for sharing these in 2009. I wish you happiness and health - and more of such images - in 2010.
Fantastic set, my friend.
I added #2 to my favs for two reasons: it's the one I like the most in this post and also because I want to remember this great set forever.
And I want you to know that, for me, you are one of the best photobloggers in 2009. I'm sure you'll be in 2010 too.
Thanks for sharing your work and Happy New Year!!
