The Boston Globe publishes some truly amazing photographs in their weekly feature The Big Picture. This week’s gallery showed photographs of Afghanistan and Afghanistan-related images. I’m a believer of the adage “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and this week proves the rule. I highly recommend the photo gallery.
