Slick Photojournalism Blog

The NY Times is expanding its internet offerings in some slick ways. I’ve recently discovered their “Lens” blog, which seeks to highlight new photojournalism. Every post is focused around a gallery of photographs. Some summarize the day in pictures, others offer perspective on the news or a look at a specific photographer. The interface is nice, too. You can scroll through recent posts and view a slideshow without leaving the home page, or you can make the whole thing full screen. I’ve been checking it every day.

I should also mention that the Times offers something called Times Reader, an Adobe Air application (similar to Flash) that allows you to read the paper in a very attractive way — easy to scan, and more attractive than the web page, with a lot less advertising.
