Check this out


And prepare yourself for an eyeful. In an age of over stimulation, the large scale format of this daily photo blog manages to completely overwhelm in a way that is amazingly breathtaking and serene. Even when the subjects of the high resolution photographs are victims of war, natural disasters and poverty- the clarity, richness of color and composition collaborate to capture moments in time with complete, objective honesty.

Boston.com has got themselves a hot ticket in the shape of The Big Picture and I imagine it can only get better.

Oh, and don't take the landing page at face value (though it does make a stunning first impression) - make sure to click on the links to additional photos for each subject. You'll never want to see another thumbnail photo again.
