“5.6 million. That’s roughly the number of images photo editors of The New York Times sift through each year to find the perfect photographs to represent the news for our readers. This collection of images is a testament to a mere fraction of the conflicts and triumphs, catastrophes and achievements and simple but poignant moments of everyday life in the past 365 days.” This time from the NYT: Another amazing collection of the year in photos. (5.6 million is also the number of photos one has to peruse on social media before finding an interesting one.)
