Best Pictures of 2008

From The Big Picture

2008 has been an eventful year to say the least – it is difficult to sum up the thousands of stories in just a handful of photographs. That said, I will try to do what I’ve done with other photo narratives here, and tell a story of 2008 in photographs. It’s not the story of 2008, it’s certainly not all stories, but as a collection it does show a good portion of what life has been like over the past 12 months. This is a multi-entry story, 120 photographs over three days:

Part 2
Part 3

Here are two of the more light-hearted ones from the collection – a woman cantering her horse alongside the Tour d’ France competitors, and the fans of Red Star Belgrade soccer team lighting up the red flares during a game:
