Photo Journal – When you think about The Wall Street Journal, the first thing that pops into your head is boring financial data, and in-depth economy related articles, right? That makes the two of us. That’s why I was so blown away by what I feel are the best photos I have ever seen online. I was especially impressed by the Pictures of the Day feature – photos here are simply stunning.
It is important to note that these aren’t simply highly professional photos, taken by this accredited photographer or another. It’s about amazing photos acting as news items that hold their own. Each photo is accompanied by a short description to help you understand its context. I truly admire this manner of consuming news because it combines great and powerful visuals with current updates on what’s going on in the world. Some of the photos I found particularly amazing are below. Clicking on the photos below will redirect you to the story behind them.
