The Boston Globe has a beautiful picture series features section running called "The Big Picture".
It should first be mentioned that Pakistan`s ally and friend, China, has also suffered a disaster in the form of mudslides in the city Gansu of the province, Gannan.
They've obviously covered the flood. This is news as art. Some of the pictures are truly mesmerising. Because this all happened.
Since the flood has been so big (turning rivers a few hundred meters wide now 18 miles across), they've had to do a second series.
