I have posted before about how I love great photography (but who doesn’t?!). What I have found this time around is an amazing current events photo blog.
This blog is called The Big Picture and tells “news stories in photographs.” The site is produced by a select group of photo editors from The Boston Globe. The majority of the images come from companies such as the Associated Press, Reuters, and Getty Images, who license them to The Boston Globe for their use. Other photos come from public domain sources such as NASA, and others from private photographers who share them with the Big Picture for one-time use.
All photos must be very good, high-resolution, newsworthy, free for use, and there must be a good amount of them from each subject. I love that they do this because we can see great photos of things happening all around the world from different perspectives.
Below are some pictures from a photo series they recently posted called “Harvest 2013” that looks at harvesting from around the world since mid-summer.
Sometimes, no words are needed when there are great photos. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite news oriented blogs.
