    Yes, 2009 was a good year in many ways.
    "The best camera app" will hopefully be available in other countries by the end of 2010? (preferably scandinavia, hint hint)

    - Have a good year

    I'm reminded most about 2009, that even though the economy is bad, creativity is always and forever free.

    My 5 favorite slices of 2009:

    Shooting first paid job (brother's before prom)
    Driving with my uncle and cousins from Scottsdale to flagstaff & prescott for a few days
    Going to NYC to see Joe McNally's seminar
    Going to NYC to meet you and hang out with the CJNYC group
    And lastly- finishing the year taking some shots for the Best Cam customer picture contest.. even if I am miles away from winning

    I'm extremely excited for 2010. Happy new year!

    I wish to show some thanks to this writer for bailing me out of such a scenario. After browsing throughout the world-wide-web and seeing ways that were not beneficial, I believed my entire life was well over. Living devoid of the approaches to the issues you’ve sorted out through your good post is a critical case, as well as ones that might have in a negative way affected my entire career if I hadn’t noticed your web page. Your good ability and kindness in handling all the stuff was priceless. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a thing like this. I’m able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you so much for the reliable and result oriented guide. I won’t be reluctant to refer the sites to anybody who would like guide about this problem.
