Ben, thank you for some great pictures over the year; here's wishing you a wonderful time in 2009 - all the best!

Well Ben, I was thinking I was going to find one of your City Hall or the clock tower shots, but this is really gorgeous, too. Blessings to you in this new year, and I hope you continue to have fun amazing us with your images. Hope the parade is extra colorful and a blast!

Oh yes, Ben... the shot that every photoblogger in the San Gabriel Valley wishes he or she had snapped! It's beautiful, and it really conveys the magic and mystery of that wonderful bridge.

Here's wishing you and your loved ones a peaceful and prosperous new year!

I like this one too, Ben. I love arches anywhere.

Happy New Year to you and your family from Patty and Abe.

I have your voters to thank — this is a wonderful photo. Beautiful bridge and trees, magical mist.

Happy theme day! And happy new year too!

First, that's a great photo.

Second, congratulations on having enough viewers to warrant a vote :-)

Great, all around.

I wonder how many people know someone who committed suicide on this bridge. I, for one, do.

Keith said...

Yay! That's the one I voted for! Happy New Year, Ben. Can't wait to see the parade photo's.
