Big Picture: 2009 in pictures


As another year draws to a close – I can’t believe there’s a little over two weeks left of 2009 – Boston.com brings us a three-part post of their choice of photographs representing the year that was, 2009.

Even though there have been some amazing moments, around the world, during 2009 looking back at the three pages worth of pictures from 2009, one can’t help wonder – what will 2010 hold – will we see a similar array of photos next year, or will they be happier ones?

On that note – please be warned that some of the photos in the three Big Picture posts contain images which may offend sensitive viewers/readers.

The year 2009 is now coming to a close, and it’s time to take a look back over the past 12 months through photographs. Historic elections were held in Iran, India and the United States, some wars wound down while others escalated, China turned 60, and the Berlin Wall was remembered 20 years after it came down. Each photo tells its own tale, weaving together into the larger story of 2009. This is a multi-entry story, 120 photographs over three days. Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. – source Boston.com
