You've Got to See the World Press Photos of the Year

(Click Here) and watch the slideshow of the 14 selections for this year. Incredibly powerful.
 
The images that stick with me are the delirious ebola patient, and the still life with blood from the Ukraine. All of them are amazingly powerful.
 
I'm also struck by the pictures of the Nigerian schoolgirl's uniforms - you get the whole story of the kidnapped girls from a single image, which does not even include a person. The same is true of the Ukrainian still life.
 
These give me something to aspire to.
