Photography is one of my favorite hobbies. I enjoy taking photographs of places, people, wildlife and animals. Thankfully, as I travel quite a lot, I visit lots of interesting places, meet many interesting people, and encounter all kinds of interesting animals and birds.
Most of my travel photography from 2009 can be found at Sosauce.com, a website dedicated to travel and photography.
I also post many individual photos, or small collections of photos, to my blog. I do this on a regular basis, usually daily, but I'm not doing a photo-per-day-for-a-year project, so I only post photos that I think are worth seeing, not just because I "have to". Subscribe to the photography feed to only get the photos, and nothing else.
The best way to keep up with my photography, and all my other projects, is to follow me on twitter: @lukeburrage.
Best of 2009Judging from filenames, I took about 6,500 photos in 2009. Here are my favorite 77 travel, wildlife, portrait, and self-portrait photos from my time on the road. They are displayed in a chronological order, click for high resolution versions, and all are released under a creative commons 3.0 license. Enjoy!
