The "Big Picture"  
A colleague introduced me to a web site today.  I had not seen it before but was instantly captivated by it.  The site collects photos from the various news wire services plus a few other sources.  The photos are then assembled in collections looking at an issue without agenda or at least with as little agenda as can be had in today's world.

The collections stand as mute testimony to an event, place or object that is usually too big to comprehend otherwise.  The only text available are the captions at the bottom of each photo plus a brief introduction to the topic at hand.

Recent collections include one on North Korea and another on Hurricane Ike.

Check it out for yourself at "The Big Picture".
