December's newsletter wouldn't be complete if we didn't share compilations of the best pictures of the year or even decade so here goes:

Boston's Big Picture's Pictures of the Decade
MSNBC's A Decade in Pictures
TIME Magazine's Pictures of the Year 2009

Worth a Read:
Lifehacker's Most Popular Photography Hacks of 2009

And, this month's best gpp picks:

Platon's Portraits of Power - fantastic portraits by one of the top portait shooters of this decade. The link will take you to an online slideshow where Platon narrates some of the challenges and highlights of his portaiture work that includes the world's leaders and newsmakers.

Visura Magazine - this is one of our favorite websites to visit - they have a monthly magazine showcasing some amazing photoessays. We recommend an fantastic landscape series entitled A Series of Moments by James Knight Smith and the Kashmir photoessay by Andy Spyra.

Happy New Year to you all and here's hoping to another year of making images.
