2008 – The Year in Photos
December 28, 2008
The end of the year always comes with a glut of lists…best of this, best of that. Most of them suck. Fortunately, I found one that doesn’t suck – the Year in Photos list from “The Big Picture Blog” via the Boston Globe. Do yourself a favor and take a look at parts ONE, TWO and THREE. I’ve included a few of my personal favorites below.
