I went back through all of my shots for the 365 project since Jan 1 of this year - and I looked at all the photos my PB friends had saved to their favorites, but...I kept coming back to this image.
I remember being so surprised when I downloaded the shot and saw what I had gotten - all the details, the lighting, the overall feeling of the photograph. So, to me, this is my favorite, if not my best, photo of 2010.
To all of you PB photogs, thank you for the pleasure of viewing your incredible images this past year - my eyes have been opened, my world has been enlarged, and my heart has been moved! Thank you, Photoblog, for changing my life!
MY WISH FOR THE NEW YEAR:
I would wish that the world could find the peace, understanding, compassion, and friendship that I have found in my friends across the earth through PB! Tony Bennett's "If I Ruled the World"

Brenda this is a truly beautiful and unique shot. The detail and the juxtapositioning of the elements is so cool and interesting. Each element looks independent until all of a sudden you recognize the connectedness of the elements. Really great!
this DID turn out fabulous- you shouldn't have been surprised though, you're an excellent photographer!!!

That is a wonderful choice, you do have a great portfolio of wonderful shots, Brenda! I'm very glad you chose this one, so artistically well composed, and I loved this post very much!!!
Thank you for sharing your world with us.
Wonderful shot - great lighting. Great wish too.
I remember making an ash tray out of beaten copper in school metalwork lessons. How things change, they'd never give a project to to that could encourage smoking now.
Brenda this is a wonderful choice. I remember this post and it is a special capture with perfect lighting. I have really loved getting know you through your photos and many kind comments. We will meet some day I'm sure :) since we live parallel lives :) Happy new year to you
