Boston Globe’s Big Picture Blog posts high resolution photos of items of interest. This site has quickly become a staff favorite here at Fastcase for unique high definition look at current events. Viewing low resolution images attached to news articles seems antiquated in comparison. This photo blog is run by Alan Taylor, a Boston Globe web developer, who culls these images and others from wire services. A current favorite of mine features stylish photos of London at night. Check out these photos (and others) in ultra high resolution at Boston’s Big Picture Blog.
