This weekend, the Times unveiled a new photoblog on its website, called Lens, with a focus on photography and photojournalism.
One of the benefits of an internet-based newspaper is its unlimited size. Now the paper can have loads upon loads of photographs. What I especially love about the blog is its layout. You can simply click through big images if that's your mood or read the accompanying text if you have more time.
In its first weekend, Lens has richly illustrated 'articles' from all over the world, and all over history. Choose from a post about the Oval Office, gorgeous images taken in Pakistan by a Times photographer, and the rich images taken by a large format camera, among others.
The Times has always had stellar photography. Now, we readers can enjoy even more of it.
