Today is Theme Day at the City Daily Photo, a community of bloggers who like photographing their cities. Today’s theme is: Best photo of the year 2009. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

I couldn’t decide which photo from last year I like best so I picked the one that proved to be the most popular, meaning the one who got the most comments. It represents Bucharest’s Old Town (Historic Quarter) on a late November night. With the summer terraces gone, the streets in the Old Center look deserted, even though many of the cafes lining the streets are full until late at night. The photo shows Franceză Street on a Thursday around midnight.
