Related Photos This is a link to pictures from the shooting at the mall in Salt Lake City on msnbc.com.
The pictures associated with the story were useful, but the part of this site that I thought was the most interesting was the featured slideshows of pictures in the box towards the bottom of the page. Each of the slideshows has 13 or 14 pictures complete with captions explaining the context of the picture. Once you've looked at all the pictures it opens up another window that allows you to vote for your favorite and blog about the different photos. It's a nice/interesting way to provide very brief details about news and sporting events that can be flipped through quickly. Many people would look through a slideshow but wouldn't take the time to click on individual pictures or to look at an article.
