Sources: The images here are the product of a very unsystematic search. I'd wager you can find other, similar images pretty easily. The top image is from the "Framework" feature at The Los Angeles Times - 02/18/2011. The second and third images are from the "24 Hours in Pictures" feature at The Guardian - 03/22/2011 and 04/02/2011 respectively. The bottom two images are from the "Picture This" feature at Spiegel International - 04/01/2011 and 03/25/2011 respectively. In each instance. I've lifted both image and caption from the source.
