Pictures in the News | Sept. 21, 2010

Framework’s Pictures in the News today features images of the Clinton Global Initiative meeting in New York, giant lanterns at night at the Lantern Wonderland in Hong Kong, bishops and cardinals at Mass in Germany and ultra-Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem preparing for Sukkot.

We have images of a motorcycle daredevil at a carnival in Serbia; a Greenpeace activist successfully scaling the anchor chain of a drilling ship off the Shetland Islands in Scotland; two very different art exhibits in Poland and Spain; and people with no houses throwing stones in the South African port community of Hout Bay, south of Cape Town.

Fish are jumping at Qiandao Lake in China; a couple, dressed as a tiger and a panda — clearly not chicken — kiss in Kiev; and a participant wears a bedbug hard hat at the first North American summit for the pesky creature.

Additional stops in Nepal, Afghanistan, Brazil, India, Venezuela and, closer to home, New York and San Francisco round out today’s report.
