We begin the week in France, where the Eiffel Tower continues to be under military guard following Saudi Arabia’s recent warning of the potential for an Al Qaeda attack on Paris’ landmark; David Hockney’s new exhibition opens with art created and displayed on iPhones and iPads; while in Lyon, high school students join the demonstrations again the government’s pensions bill.

We’re in Mexico with a farmer harvesting marigolds for Day of the Dead celebrations; in Missoula, Mont., with an inquisitive, hungry deer that’s eyeing a pile of inviting pumpkins; and at Yankee Stadium in New York with a giant American flag held by West Point cadets during a performance of the national anthem prior to the start of Game 3 of the American League Championship Series.

High fashion in Spain and Russia, pony racing in England, and images of autumn in Minsk and Salina, Kan., add a splash of color to today’s gallery, counterpointed by Typhoon Megi roaring across the Philippines, leaving devastation in its wake.

As always, the week’s off to a good start with images of range and scope from around the world.
