Interesting, Amazing Pictures

From PoliBlog

From John Lemon (retired blogger): Being a huge fan of the photographic arts, one of my must-see weekly websites has been MSNBC.com's "Week in Pictures." Each week readers get to vote on their favorite photo. At the end of the year the editors post top vote getters from readers and then the "critics' picks." Over the past three years I have noticed a definite pattern. On average, the critics' picks tend to draw more upon scenes of tragedy or despair. And on average, the readers favor pictures associated with human achievement, compassion and natural joy. I think this really reflects the divide between the so-called intelligensia (of which I would consider art/photo critics to be part of) and "average folk." And as of last night, I was not surprised to find the two top vote getters were "My Daddy, My Hero" and "Soldier with Child" (my titles for the photos). Both pictures truly represent the best of our military.

You can see the MSNBC.com slideshow here. It will be well worth your time. My favorite was #1. I like the little boy jumping into the pile of leaves too.
