Goodbye 2009 from Antigua Guatemala!

Adiós dos mil nueve

¡Adiós dos mil nueve!

This is also goodbye to a decade.

That’s it. At the closing of the 31st of December, we’ll be saying our goodbyes to 2009 and looking forward to a new tiger. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful people who have left comments or sent feedback. I want to send a big THANK YOU to all of you who supported my efforts through donations towards the hosting bills, gifts from my Amazon wish list or purchases of high quality prints from the over 2000 photos available in the archives of AntiguaDailyPhoto. A very SPECIAL THANK YOU to all the guest contributors who made AntiguaDailyPhoto a richer, polyphonic resource for all things Guatemala.

We close the year 2009 with 1368 pages, 9691 comments and 1,408,105 visits (at the time of writing).

Please, let us know what were your favorite entries, your favorite series, or your favorite photos of the year. THANKS!

  • Feliz Año Nuevo Rudy; what a gorgeous photo you’ve chosen to say goodbye to 2009, the color in the sky is extraordinary.
    Let’s see now…my favorite series of the year was definitely the Casa Antigueña one, I think it showcased all the beautiful elements Antigua’s houses are famous for.
    My favorite entry -without a doubt- had to be the one of War of the Worlds 😉
    The favorite photo is a bit more difficult, I have to declare a tie between your photo of September 24th “Just a Sunset” and Arturo’s photo of September 22nd “A brief sunrise amongst volcanoes”

  • A very beautiful and dramatic night shot, wonderful.

    I love all the food….

  • Rudy, and then you say that you don’t take good pictures? Hmm, hmmm ;O) I am most grateful to you for inviting me to contribute to ADP, it is a great experience!!! Most importantly, it is for me a great privilege and honor to be amongst you all!!! I am also grateful for how well you edit my humble stories, I am really not a good writer, so please imagine very well my gratitude to you.

    I agree that my favorite is the one of the War of the Worlds, it was so great!!! I have others, but I can’t remember them all, ;O), so I’ll have to go over every story, ;O)

    Pictures? Uff, sooooo many, but I very much enjoy the stories told by the pictures, particularly those that get me craving for food, hahahaha!!!!!

    Eh, Jennifer, thank you very much for your compliments!!!!!!!!!

    Just as a quick note, I am moving most of my pictures to smugmug.com, bit by bit, and soon it will be my main photo page, ;O)

    Haaaaaaaaaaappy New Year to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Well, to be fair, I have to thank my daughter who introduced me to your page and gave me the opportunity to enjoy so many beautiful photos, yours, Laura’s and Arturo’s, as well as many good descriptions, useful links, guests’ comments…

    I rise my glass and join you saying, goodbye 2009 and welcome 2010! It is exciting to think that 365 new photos are already waiting.

  • Hi Rudy, I have may favorites, I agree with Arturo that the food one are one of the best, you should have very good discounts at the places right ?
