Year in Pictures Out: Its interesting how often we notice themes when we begin looking critically at photos for our Year in Pictures edit. I like that photojournalists working in diverse locations around the globe see and respond to similar visual topics. For me, its another data point in the big idea that we are more similar than we are different. We saw a lot of boys diving in the river pictures in 2007. I lobbied for this one because I like how it almost looks like a time-lapse photo of one boys jump. I wish it had made the final edit.
Boys dive into the Ganges River to beat the heat in Calcutta, India, Tuesday, April 24. Temperatures shot up at many places in North India Tuesday which remained in the grip of a searing heat wave.
