Holy and Unholy Fragments: Our Weekly Twitter/Instragram Round Up

If anything, this round-up demonstrates how life, and the media can be filled with  drama, urgency and profound contrast. Along those lines, a street photograph by Roger May ushers in Holy Week — but it frames the glory in a starker reality, and just a fragment of the scene. We did multiple posts this week on the terror attack in Brussels (1, 2). The pictures here acknowledge the photo stream with more distance. (The exception is the post by Lewis Bush addressing refugee photos and Brussels.)  Finally, if you want to talk legacy (and insulation from the naysayers), Obama left Cuba with some confident gestures.
