2006 Pictures of the Year

This topic is a little past it’s prime, but this weekend is slow in the world of photography news.

Mike Sturk posted some links at Rob Galbraith Digital Photography Insights in an article called “A roundup of 2006 pictures of the year”.  There are 26 links to various sites that have a display of great photos from 2006.  Most, if not all, of these are definitely worth looking at.  The content of these photos span the world and cover some of the best and worst accomplishments of the human race.

My favorites were from the New York Times, Time, Reuters, and MSNBC — but again, all of them are worth looking at.  I’m always amazed at what we’re capable of when I see things portrayed in photos like these.

So if it’s a slow day for you too, check out Mike’s links and take the time to reaffirm how good you’ve got it.
