The Boston Globe showed off the beauty of Japan’s festivities that take place at the end of the winter season through its photography blog titled “The Big Picture.”
The blog never disappoints; it is regularly updated with rich, story-telling photos of newsworthy events from all around the globe. On Feb. 15, “Fire and Ice” was posted, which showcases visual accounts of the winter festivals in Japan that celebrate the ending of winter.
The photo-story post essentially serves as a compilation of telling photos that allow readers to become familiar with the story through their eyes. “Fire and Ice” features photographs from Getty Images, EPA, AFP and Associated Press.
This tweet promotes the photo story on the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show that took place in Manhattan this past weekend.
It is necessary for publications these days to promote their stories using social media, and “The Big Picture” does just that.
