The Porter's Bloody Mary - with house infused four pepper vodka
The Porter's Bloody Mary - with house infused four pepper vodka

We’re full-steam ahead into 2010 but 2009 is not forgotten. Savory Exposure was born in 2009 and I had no idea if it would work or if it would be well-received, thankfully those concerns were put to rest by plenty of link love from my fellow bloggers and Atlanta publications. Thanks for the love! Perusing through the photos I’ve taken in the last year and picking out photos for this post proved much harder than I initially imagined, so as I quickly ended up with 25 photos, I figure I’ll save some others for a future post. Some are alternate shots of scenes you’ve viewed before, and others will be posts that never made it for whatever reason. In  any case, I hope you enjoy…and if you’re in the south, I hope you’ll enjoy your black eyed peas & greens today!
