BBC – Day in Pictures

Filed under: Personal — Les Bain @ 1:12 pm

This is one of my favorite Internet visits during the day.  It is striking images from around the world.

The reason I like it so much is that it reminds me every day not to be insular.  There are pictures of people from all over the world.  Most of the time they are dressed in ways that I never see in my day to day activity.

Many times they are engaging in activity that I have never seen.  Or celebrating a festival that is unknown to me.  Or recovering from a tragedy or disaster that I had not read about.

The site reminds me of the great diversity on our planet.
