Ein weiteres, ereignisreiches Jahr geht zu Ende und wie immer, kurz vor Zapfenstreich, hat die die älteste internationale Nachrichtenagentur Agence France Presse (AFP, weltweit die Drittgrößte, neben der Hauptzentrale in Paris noch Büros und Mitarbeiter in 150 Ländern) die ihrer Meinung nach aufregendsten Bilder, die in 2012 um die Welt gingen, nominiert. Mit dabei ist das Bild der Enterprise über dem „Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum New York“ aus dem April, ein Bild vom holländischen (genauer: Dordrecht) Hochwasser aus dem Januar oder ein Bild der zugefrorenen Autos aus Lake Geneva/Versoix von der stürmischsten Nacht des Jahres aus dem Februar. Was die jeweiligen Bilder so besonders macht, ist die entsprechenden Geschichte dahinter, Ihr wisst ja, Bild > 1.000 Worte und so – guckt mal:

„As 2012 comes to a close, we reflect on this amazing year that has had its fair share of triumphs and hardships. At the forefront of many of the most memorable moments, both in the victorious and devastating sense, there have been photojournalists capturing images that would travel all around the world. Their dedication to their craft has produced some remarkable images over the year, many of which are included in global press agency Agence France Presse’s 2012 Best of the World in Photos list.“
