Photos for a Thursday

In keeping with my blog break, here’s a link from “The Big Picture,” which tells news stories in photographs — but I’ll warn you that it might break your heart. It’s photos of what BP’s oil spill has done to the Gulf of Mexico. Some of them are gorgeous and all of them are depressing. Here’s a preview photo for you. It’s not one of the beautiful ones, but it’s the one that made me furious. If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time, you might know why.

Thanks to my pal Jen for the link.
