Capturing the moment

Update: The 2005 photo isn't from the papal announcement, as is implied, but from the funeral procession of Blessed John Paul II. Still, the 2013 image is striking...

Ran across this image from NBC news. Papal announcement at St. Peter's square in 2005 vs. 2013. Notice anything different?

What a different 8 years makes! (although the folks in the 2005 image look like they may be a lot farther away from the basilica than those in the 2013 image. Difficult to tell. Nevertheless...)

Actually the photo is false in its implication. The top photo was taken at the funeral procession of JP2. Yeah what a shock you can't trust NBC News who created it on their instagram account

Jeff, thanks for the update! Makes a little bit more sense now, though the bottom photo is still striking.
