Give me a bigger picture

I was at Booooooom and somewhat chance upon The 2008 In Photos! I tell ya, they really sum up 2008 quite well. Featuring below are some of it I thought are 'light' photography. In other words, they are happening moments that happened in the year of 2008. I didnt want to post up saddening photos on a friday morning! Yea? But frankly speaking, I was pretty disturb by the fact of sichuan photos, wars as well as some mother nature disaster. Shrugs.

If a picture speaks a thousand words, The 2008 In Photos really speaks a million.

Photos taken are mainly:

Department of Water and Power released about 400,000 black plastic 4-inch balls as the first installment of approximately 3 million to form a floating cover over 7 acres of the reservoir to protect the water from sunlight. When sunlight mixes with the bromide and chlorine in Ivanhoe's water, the carcinogen bromate can form.
