All-Request Photos: Vladimir Putin, Baby Pigs, Zanzibar ...

As part of an ongoing experiment, I solicited reader requests for news photos, asking people on Twitter, Facebook and email, "Would you like to see a good photo of a particular subject? A high-res version of a photo you've already seen somewhere else? A photo from a particular photographer or event? If I have access and can find it, I'll try to post it." The response was even better than the last time we did this, the subject matter was varied, and the task of finding the images and composing the entry was great fun. Requests this time ranged from Vladimir Putin in the snow to the beaches of Zanzibar, to the skyline of Chicago. If you like this experiment, let me know in the comments. I've decided to make it a more regular feature now. To all those who made requests, thanks so much. Be sure to see previous Reader Request entries.
