01/16/09 114 W, 1 I - + 14 - 11 There's a Plane in the Hudson

Another great photo from yesterday, water spots notwithstanding, was this well-composed image from a ferry passenger named Janis Krums, who posted his image to Twitter with the one-line caption "There's a plane in the Hudson. I'm on the ferry going to pick up the people. Crazy." Citizen journalism, just like that. One photo, one sentence. The picture has been picked by the AP, and appeared on the front page of today's News & Observer. And probably many other print outlets. At least, those that haven't closed shop. Firegeezer talks about this photo and this subject today. The New York Times also discusses.
