it's fine if you want to post old photos from other years. I personally don't have anything against that. no hard and fast rules anyway. although, since we do have threads for photos from every single year (I think) if you are crazy enough to go dig them up you can post them in the appropriate years too!
Oooh it's much too much effort to dig them up, though I'm sure I'm crazy enough to do it if I had the time! And if this is really truly Marat's final year (shakes head in stubborn disbelief) and he's playing fewer tournaments, the 2009 thread might end up serving a dual purpose anyway, as a kind of stroll down memory lane, while waiting for the start of his next tournament.
