news photos 2008

Due to sporadic distractions this year (sailing the world in our pedal-powered yacht, abduction by hyper-intelligent lemurs, a case of the hantavirus) we missed out on some of 2008’s major headlines.

Luckily, the end of December is our chance to catch up on the news we missed this year.

But which “2008 in Review” article is best? Is it the New York Times? The Economist? The East Weedpatch Herald Tribune?

We just pick the one with the best pictures.

We scored big this year when we found 120 huge photos of practically everything that happened in 2008.

It’s not all fires, floods and wars either: it’s everything from hundreds of performers beating gold drums at the Beijing Olympics to a solar eclipse darkening the afternoon sky into night.

Sure, we may miss some news in 2009 (the old yacht’s a-callin’ and the lemurs are nigh), but at least we’re caught up on 2008.

Instagram crush alert! @Paperboyo combines stunningly precise papercraft cut-outs with monuments and landmarks from all over the globe for amazing photographs that never cease to make us marvel (and occasionally chuckle too).

Thankfully, we don’t have to stare at our phones hoping for a new post. Rich McCor (the clever snapper behind @paperboyo) recently released a book of his fantastic photos and behind the scenes peeks at his process.

We still couldn’t get enough Rich in our lives, so we talked to him about his inspiration, his favorite gear and much more. Turns out the dude is just as delightful as his photos!
