Photo of the day

I’ve been pretty fascinated by the recent cruise ship crash and the many mind-blowing images.  That said, I really have not seen a particularly compelling collection of photos of the disaster until Alan Taylor posted his collection yesterday.  Definitely worth checking out the whole series.  This was one of my favorites:

View of the Costa Concordia taken on January 14, 2012, after the cruise ship ran aground and keeled over off the Isola del Giglio. Five passengers drowned and about 15 still remain missing after the Italian ship with some 4,200 people on board ran aground. The Costa Concordia was on a trip around the Mediterranean when it apparently hit a reef near the island of Giglio on Friday, only a few hours into its voyage, as passengers were sitting down for dinner. (Filippo Monteforte/AFP/Getty Images)
