6 Game – Changing Digital Journalism Events of 2011

Here’s a treat – and perhaps a welcome break from the news. It’s a collection of photographs from Adam Allegro(@catchthejiffy), a full-time officer in the U.S. Navy who is exploring Europe through a camera lens. Adam just started his blog in May of last year but has already posted loads of incredible photos – all of which are free for personal use.
