Today's photo gallery shows celebrations (or preparations for celebrations) by people of the Jewish, Sikh, Buddist and Hindu faiths. Learn more about the particular occasions by reading the captions.Or view the whole gallery as a mosaic.
Today two of the most interesting photos in our news gallery show people trying to carry on their everyday life in the aftermath of last month's earthquake and tsunami. One shows a young person skateboarding through an effected area while wearing surgical mask.
Today the basic photos of press conferences in Washington took on a much more dramatic tone as the budget battle begins its endgame. In one photo it looks like Harry Reid is gripping the podium for dear life. In another it appears that John Boehner has a posse. President Obama simply bites his lip.
The photos in today's news at a glance gallery come from Libya, Yemen, Ivory Coast, Morocco, Romania, Ireland, Columbia, France, Afghanistan, Ukraine, India and the U.S. To me the most striking image is of a rabbi burying Jews killed in the Holocaust and found in a mass grave in Romania in 2010.
Today Getty's photographers captured Italy's new refugee problem, Belgium's governmentless protest, Somalia's country-within-a-country, French Guiana's space program, China's giant fish and cricket's World Cup. And of course, much more.As always, I recommend viewing this gallery as a mosaic.
