The Boston Globe has a photography blog called “The Big Picture” which is totally awesome. Subtitled “News Stories in Photographs”, it collects high resolution images from photographers around the world.

Inspired by publications like Life Magazine (of old), National Geographic, and
online experiences like MSNBC.com's Picture Stories galleries and Brian Storm's
MediaStorm, The Big Picture is intended to highlight high-quality, amazing
imagery - with a focus on current events, lesser-known stories and, well, just
about anything that comes across the wire that looks really interesting.
