Here in Sydney we’ve just blown lots of things up on and around the Sydney Harbour Bridge to celebrate the turning of the calendar. Hope you’re all having some convivial fun for the New Year and that it brings you much joy.
ADDIT: Just saw a wonderful idea on a mailing list (hat-tip to BobH) – post a link to your One Photo for 2008 – the captured moment, either personal or political, that you just can’t forget. Where possible, we will do admin-magic to make it show up in-thread.
For a bit of inspiration, try some of these media galleries for 2008 retrospectives (beware, if you are on dial-up the ones marked with an asterisk will eat your bandwidth):
CBS has a huge 2008 In Review section, organised by topic. Take a packed lunch. Individual pics are well-sized, but viewing everything will nom your dial-up. *
The Guardian has a similar 2008 in Review series. *
New Scientist has a stunning gallery of science photos.
Australia’s newspapers don’t seem to have done that much in the way of picture retrospectives that I could find – if anyone’s found some that I missed, please share!
