2008 Year in Photographs

January 8, 2009

Wow.

What an eventful year.

The Boston Globe has posted 120 pictures to commemorate 2008.  The photos are posted in three different parts.  Some are funny, some are sad and most all of them will give you something to think about.  They do a great job of capturing some of the stories from the past year.  Almost all of them are spectacular, with only a few that don’t meet the high standards of the rest.

Along with the links, I’m going to post my favorite picture from each set.  I’m not 100% sure on the laws/internet guidelines on posting pictures from other sites but I think it’s all good as long as you include a link to the site.

Take a few moments to check these out.  It is well worth it.
