Best of 2009: Photo Edition (January- June)

Photography is something that I love with a passion. Last year I sold a lens so that I could upgrade from a Canon Rebel XTI to a Canon 40D. I regret selling the lens, but it was the only way I could upgrade. (I’m currently considering selling a kidney to buy the lens that I sold. Any takers? $649! Total bargain.) I’ve been going through my images from the past year all morning on Flickr. (Well, in between waiting for phone calls from my husband, who was having various tests done on his heart due to chest pains. But don’t worry! He’s fine. Or at least the doctor thinks so. FOR NOW. Awaiting further tests.)
I have to say (and this is hard for me to say, because it’s not very often I feel this way about anything that I do) I am proud of the images I captured this year. I wanted to showcase my favorites here, all in one place. However, I think I’ll break them up into several posts.
I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

    You should be proud – many great shots. I was admiring the composition of the picture labeled “summertime in Chicago” earlier today.

    I don’t comment often (on ANY blog). But I just wanted to tell you that you’re so talented. And your family is beautiful. And I don’t think you give yourself enough credit for how strong you are. You face adversity on all sides, with your weight and your family struggles and the bean dip haters. Bravo, you. I hope your 2010 is even more blessed than your 2009 seemed to be.

    I can’t wait to meet you at a certain shower for a certain someone who is pregnant with a certain (internet) niece of mine. You’re an amazing photographer. Seriously. Your talent astounds me.

    Y, I love every single one of your pictures, but out of these ones you posted, I love teh first one of your daughter.
    Her big expressive eyes, those pouty lips, and her gorgeous skin.
    You have a beautiful family, I really love these photos, can’t wait to see more.

    (poof! went half of my comment…just like that! so here I am again. don’t you just hate that?)
    The pictures are just beautiful. Bravo! And next time I need a kidney I know RIGHT where to go. So thanks for that…although I must say I am hoping my kidneys filter just fine for a long while.
    Happy New Years to you and yours…

    I absolutely love, love, love your pictures! You are quite talented, Y. Your daughter’s eyes are beautiful! Happy New Year!

    Your life in photos is beautiful. And I cannot believe how much your children have grown since I started reading you earlier this decade. Looking forward to what’s to come during the next one. Best wishes for 2010!
