Bully for Fu(jairah) - a meeting of minds

"Fujairah bullfighting is a bloodless event where weight classed farmer bulls come together in a sumo-wrestling style clash every friday by the Fujairah corniche.

Allegedly introduced to the region by early portugese settlers the event has continued as a weekly recreation for locals including farmers, fishermen, families and of course the odd tourist.

The bulls are torn apart before remotely serious damage can be done as they are substantial investments for their owners.

Yallah....OLE!". Taken by saharsh

Amor et Psyche

"Shot on location in Paris, France.

Visitors of the Louvre Museum in Paris love this sculpture, and I do too: the famous 'Amor et Psyche' from the artist Antonio Canova, who lived between 1757 and 1822.

The sculpture captures the moment Amor returns Psyche from her deadly sleep - after being kissed by Amor she´s awake and back to life. Canova created a marvelous work, where the spectator realizes the gentleness of love. The way Psyche hugs Amor creates a vivid dynamic composition in pure marble". Taken by John Grace

Smoke Break

"Walking past Macy's the other day I passed this lady. After I passed I thought to myself, I need to get a shot of her. I focused on the back of her head. The second the red light flashed she turned her head, I fired. Before she knew what hit her I was half way down the block...". Taken by Dj Poe
