    I was amazed as I scrolled through this forum and found the photography stunning and illustrative in not only a documentary sense, but in a timeless open lens shuttering the world open to my mind. So much happening in so many places at one time and I also was reminded of Life Magazine and Look.......those and National Geographic were always around. A picture says so much.....thanks for this Voice of America and Reuters.AFP, and AP for these stop and see the world "at large and at small". I will look forward to this forum.
