And another way to wrap up the year is to check out all of the news services Year In Pictures.
You should understand though that some of the images are a bit rugged.
Some are truly great images on their own merit, some tell the story of the moment.
The best do both.
Here you go, all in one place:
Interesting look from SFGate
[photopress:1.strike1.jpg,full,centered] From NYC, The Village Voice
Reuters News Service- particularly good.
The Washington Post gives us the photographers names along with their images.
Have you seen a compilation we should post here? Let us know.
