Seeing the big picture

The Big PictureThis is a great idea: Boston.com uses a blog to showcase great photography. With the tagline, ‘News Stories in Photographs’, the Big Picture doesn’t compress and resize photos as added extras or eye candy; the photos are the point. I pulled away at first when confronted by such big images on my laptop screen. But it’s a great, great idea which definitely brings home the power of an image. Pulled off the wire, the photos are accompanied by a short explanation.
I hope it’s a feature that catches on. But as Alan Taylor, its creator, points out the problem is that there’s no space for advertising. And no advertising means no revenue. No revenue means… well, you get the picture.
