If you're not regularly visiting the photo blog for the Boston Globe, then you're missing out. It's one thing to provide a written account of a current event, but having high-quality, amazing images to help capture the true essence of a story is what makes this site so appealing. Each topic has between 20 and 40 photographs, and new photos are posted each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The magnitude 6.9 earthquake in China, the tragedy in Poland, and the protests in Thailand and Kyrgyzstan are just a few of the recent topics covered on the blog. (Be sure to check the monthly archives if you're just learning about the site). The entries related to Haiti, and there are a few of them, were particularly moving to see. Reading about the death and destruction there, and then seeing it in living color, was sometimes more than my brain could comprehend. I personally think that photography is one of the most incredible processes ever. I mean, capturing a moment in time? Mind-blowing.
