photo of the day: birds take down an airplane

twitter user jkrums (who sorta looks like a male model, ladies) took this amazing photo of the plane crash while he was on a ferry. he took it using an iPhone and uploaded it via Twitter.

although people often whine that blogging and using social media is a glorified version of navel gazing, they shut right up when theres a tragedy or emergency and all of that practice comes into great use.

second best picture of the day by grego!

yes the Times has had great coverage, but i gotta take my hat off to my old boss Jen Chung who has covered this beautifully on Gothamist.
