The staff of the GA Voice carefully selected our favorite twenty photos from 2010. Below you'll find nightlife, community and news photos that we chose as our favorites of the year for various reasons. Some of the photos are especially artistic while others are meaningful because of the subject matter. The images appear in no particular order. There is no "winner." They're all great.
Thanks for a very special 2010 and enjoy the New Year.
