Rok 2016 na zdjęciach
Początek roku to często czas wszelkich rozstrzygnięć, ocen i podsumowań. Ja szczególnie lubię podsumowania w formie fotograficznej. Oczywiście nie sposób stworzyć obiektywną listę najlepszych zdjęć minionego roku, jednak przeglądając od rana różne rankingi i zestawienia (m.in. najważniejsze zdjęcia 2016 agencji prasowej Reuters, cz najlepsze zdjęcia National Geographic) zapisałem sobie kilka, bez podziału na kategorie, którymi chcę się podzielić. Niektóre zabawne, inne wzruszające lub smutne, dające do myślenia. Ale nawet dzięki tym niekoniecznie radosnym historiom, możemy wyciągnąć dla siebie coś pozytywnego - ot choćby to, jak wiele mamy i, że warto to doceniać.
