A few weeks ago, it seemed like every weblog I read was raving about the Boston Glob’s Big Picture weblog. I’ve already posted a couple links there myself, but it’s worth a post of its own.
What is The Big Picture? Its creator has this to say on his weblog:
The Big Picture is intended to highlight high-quality, amazing imagery - with a focus on current events, lesser-known stories and, well, just about anything that comes across the wire that looks really interesting. Each entry will be made up of anywhere from 6-18 photographs, tied together through some common narrative.
It’s brilliant. Where most news photo sites make you feel like you’re sorting through slides on a dim light table, The Big Picture is like a nice big stack of 8x10s. The pictures aren’t original to the site–they’re mostly from the AP, Reuters, and other news services. It’s the presentation that really makes the site unique.
