If you’re amazed by beautiful images and like current affairs, The Big Picture from the Boston Globe should be on you list of must-visit websites. The Big Picture is a collection of stunning images themed series covering current news. They a large (990×624) and often quite spectacular images with a few comments on what the photo is about.
Some of my favorite The Big Picture series include:
If you’re using a RSS Reader, they have a feed of the Big Picture available.
During the past week, I’ve been stumbling around in India. We visited Delhi, Jaipur, Gwalior, Agra and areas in between. Now I’m back sorting 1.200+ photos and trying to catch up – and this site should also come alive again :-)
The quietness on this site was caused by a vacation in South Africa. I’ve been visiting Johannesburg, Kruger National Park, Durban and Cape Town during the past 2(+) weeks, and what an adventure. We landed back in Denmark yesterday, and with a bulk load of almost 1900 digital photos from the trip, I’ve been busy sorting and organizing while trying to catch up on current events.
South Africa was an amazing experience covering all from the beautiful nature and animals to the poverty and crime plaguing most urban areas. A small selection of photos should appear in my gallery during the next week or so, and if I’m up to it, there’ll probably also be South African travel tips (in Danish) in the Danish part of the site some time soon.
I’m slowly starting to get my hearing back after visiting the Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix this sunday. The Grand Prix is a fun mix of new and old cars racing on a small (city road) tracking in the middle of Copenhagen. This year the event also celebrated the 60th aniversery of Ferrari and hosted a gathering of 100+ Ferraries. You can find a few pictures from the event in the Gallery.
If you’re browsing the Schmap of Miami, you can find one of my photos from Key West into (see West Miami). The folks behind the Schmaps found the picture on Flickr and asked for permission to use it… and they got it. I’m hoping I’ll find some useful information in some of their other guides, as ”payment” :-)
