At the beginning of the year, back when the world was full of hope and change, we wrote about our friend Rob's plan to document 2009, as he'd experienced it, with one photo each day. That project is now a day from completion.
It's safe to say that 2009 didn't turn out so well for much of the world, but there were worse years this decade. At the very least, Rob has produced a document that will allow him to remember 2009 in all its squalor.
Each image is explained by text, but after reading a while I just lost myself in the images. Since this is a holiday weekend, please consider this your Friday time-waster, delivered in true Popehat fashion a day early.
