Sometimes it’s not the actual picture that’s amazing, it’s the story behind it. When a giant inflatable pig went missing from the Coachella Music Festival on Sunday night, the scout was on for pictures of it before its mysterious disappearance. Chris Maddox captured both the pig and revelers enjoying ex-Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters’ concert in his two images highlighted in this week’s selection.
Among the many high-quality Olympic torch relay photos we received, this one from Lee Robinson in London stands out due to its dramatic framing, vivid colors and unique angle.
It’s all about the angle and emotion in this image by Sam Kang Li from a rally by Tibetan protesters in Nepal. Through the use of the angle you view the protesters from the police point of view. The raw emotion on their faces adds the human element to the photo.
