Yemeni Huthi rebels gather to mobilize more fighters on the outskirts of the capital
Yemeni Huthi rebels dance during recruiting drive for fighters needed on several battlefronts in the war against a Saudi-led coalition supporting the government of Ali Abdullah Saleh. The dagger the dancers are holding, a Janbiya , is ceremonial and has a short curved blade and a medial ridge. A common accessory across the Arab world, the Jandiya has special significance in Yemen. The knife is worn by males older than fourteen. The quality of the hilt, or handle, of the dagger designates social status and is made of different types of horn, wood, metal and ivory from Elephants and walrus. Hilts made of rhinoceros horn are the most coveted.

A girl lays in a pile of discarded flowers the day after the Diwali celebrations
This little girl in Mumbai, India is playing in the discarded orange and yellow flowers after the end of the Diwali celebrations. It's a warm reminder of the old cliche of trash and treasures. The warm colors of the flowers and her warm smile made me think of the change of seasons here in the United States. Had I not looked twice, I would have guessed she was playing in piles of autumn leaves.

A camel in the desert covered in decorative yarn pom-poms
You can't look at this photo and not smile. Or if you don't smile, you either just had botox injections or your heart is as COLD AS ICE. Are the colorful pompoms purely decoration? Do they have some symbolic meaning? Do camels always look this happy when getting their pictures taken? So many questions left unanswered, but I don't even care because I'm still smiling.

Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton holds a Halloween mask while joking with her staff
Decades ago members of the royalty amused themselves at elegant masked balls. Today leaders compete for a chance atop the political hierarchy but we ask them to reveal everything possible about their public and private life — even their virtual habits. As presidential candidate Hillary Clinton regards a rather tiny mask aboard on a plane in Erlanger, Kentucky, on Halloween perhaps she is thinking about how little she is allowed to hide.
