Favorite Photos from 2009
-- Mexico, Oneida, Appleton, and Beyond --
2009 was a great year, in spite of some challenges. With the advance John Wiley & Sons gave me for my new book, Conquering Innovation Fatigue, I upgraded my camera to a Nikon D-90 and started having even more fun with photography. Here are a few of the results so far. (Only about half of these are with the new camera. Can you guess which?)
