Keith Bellows, the editor in chief of National Geographic Traveler, picked his favorite images published in the magazine in 2009. I have had the tremendous honor of having one of my images selected for inclusion in this slideshow, which is published online. Keith explains why he likes each image and it’s worth a look. Plus I’m in magnificent company, with Sisse Brimberg & Cotton Coulson, Justin Guariglia, Catherine Karnow, Annie Griffiths-Belt, Dan Westergren among others. Have a look at the slideshow here, and be sure to turn on the volume so you can hear his reasons.
