I never miss Time’s online feature “Pictures of the Week.” Every Friday, the magazine’s photo editors post dozens of incredible images from around the world. Many involve big stories, like the fighting in Syria and the anti-American demonstrations in Pakistan and other countries. But others capture smaller moments of surprising beauty—huge 1950s American cars awash in a Havana thunderstorm, a contestant in a Mumbai dance competition dashing by in a bright red dress, a Civil War reenactor lighting candles in a field at dusk.
It’s a great way to keep up with the news, and it’s a great reminder of just how big and interesting this world really is. So, check out this week’s edition today.
