24 Hours

Every day of the year The Guardian newspaper publishes images from around the world in a series called
24 hours in pictures. Here is a very small sample of 2010:

Port-au-Prince, Haiti: A street vendor waits for clients

Shenyang, Liaoning, China: A Chinese farmer arranges cabbages on a truck for export to South Korea

Berlin, Germany: International diplomats listen to a speech of German president Horst Koehler
Grotfjord, Norway: The aurora borealis or the northern lights above a village
Málaga, Spain: A dog stands by its owner during a heavy rainstorm
Amritsar, India: Members of a wedding band rest as they wait for a wedding party to arrive

New York, US: Snow falls on a statue of George Washington on Wall Street

I admit to having a real soft spot for Australiana artwork. The kitscher the better sometimes.
Suzie Stanford's furniture upholstered with vintage linen tea towels is superb.
