The T3sk3y Defenestrator

The Big Picture

I love sites that don’t care if somebody downloads their high resolution pictures.  Seeing an image bigger than 320×240 on the web is such a cool treat.  My favorite two sites to see great high resolution pictures are Shorpy.com and The Boston Globe’s “The Big Picture.  

Their focus couldn’t really be different – The Big Picture concentrates on current photoessays, and Shorpy bills itself as “The 100-year-old photo site”.

Shorpy is neat because they show you a slice of life from the prior couple of centuries – scanned and posted on the web.  It’s amazing to me how clear the photos are considering the original was on glass plates or something equally ancient.

Here are the links for your enjoyment.  Both sites are updated frequently.
