Time Year in Pictures

I'm glad that Mr. Reichman noted this, I might have missed it.

Number 18 captivates me.  What about y'all, which ones catch you?

One of my favorites is the picture of the floating body under the bridge in New Orleans, as is the one with the burning reflections in the water. Michael's favorites are also good pictures.

But did anyone else notice that there was a disproportionate amount of TIME's own pictures there?

I didn't check absolutely all, but of those I checked (10 or 12), only one was not a TIME picture.

Perhaps the title should be "TIME's best photos of the year 2005".

Here are some other "best photos" (Scanpix/Reuters):

Maybe they're available on an English-language site, too.

My favorites: number 7 and 13.

It says much about our world when 22 of the 24 photographs reflect human suffering and death, and the two that do not have tragedy as a backdrop.

I liked Jan's assortment much better. There wasn't a single image in Time's collection that I would want on my wall, or that I felt would say something new to me a year from now. Their focus on the photojournalism of disaster to me was much too narrow. To call those the "Best photos of 2005" with no further qualification was insulting to all other forms of photography. The history of photojournalism has provided many images worthy of repeated viewing (some of those by F.S.A. photgraphers, for example). The events pictured were certainly momentous, but most of the photographs were ones that anybody with a camera in the right place at the right place would have taken.

Just my 2 re's worth.

If those were the 'best' photos, I'd hate to see what the worst photos were.

They were all good photos, but I can't say that they spoke to me as photojournalism just isn't my thing. Give me a picture of the prairies any day of the week. :-)

Fascinating how we document, are intrigued by, and somehow revere images of human tragedy rather than expressions of joy.
