I hate the ‘one photo is worth 1,000 words’ saying, because as a writer/reporter who works with words and audio, I feel like it de-emphasizes those craft.

But then, every once in a while, a photo or web slideshow comes along and proves that saying true — at least to some degree.

Take this slideshow and photo gallery of the last day of bullfighting in Catalonia, compiled by the New York Times and other news outlets.. I have seen and heard this story around a lot this week, and didn’t give it a bit of thought. And then I saw this slideshow.

Stunning.
