Photos and "Photos"

Dear National Geographic Society,
Hi! How are you? I know we haven't spoken much since I used to work for you a year ago, but I sometimes you do things I don't understand. And not like that issue a while back that enticingly asked "Was Darwin Wrong?" on the cover and then proceeded to answer "no" over the twelve pages inside. That's something else entirely. No, what I'm curious about is how you came to compile your top ten news photos of 2005 — particularly number three and number five.

Maybe I'm not a member of "The Society," as you like to call yourself, but aren't we being a little liberal with what is signified by the word "photo"?
