I've linked a few times here on the blog to the newly reinvented, online version of LIFE magazine. They've done some great photo essays over the past year and have released some historical photos too, like some never before seen shots of Hiroshima after the Bomb.
Yesterday, I found out that my brother, who is a photojournalist based in Washington with AFP, had one of his photos of President Obama selected for LIFE's Pictures Of The Year. It's a shot of the very tall commander in chief being positioned for a summit photo by the hands of a hidden South Korean presdient. It's a somewhat comic but also suprising pic as it's not often you seen the President of The United States being manhandled into position....except on healthcare. Badump-chik! Thank you folks....I'm here all week and don't forget to tip your waitresses! :)
But seriously folks, it's a great honor for my brother to be included in this compilation. And it's a stunning collection of photos in general. To check out the whole visual recap of the year that was, it's on LIFE.com.
