Rain falls yet again on Los Angeles and surrounding areas Wednesday and finds a downtown dog walker keeping his charges dry, in the process adding a splash of color to an otherwise dreary day.

In Ankara, Turkey, a soldier is suspended midair in a free fall simulator; Shanghai evening traffic snarls city flyovers; while in Egypt, a blind auto mechanic continues to ply his trade despite his disability.

The aptly named Iceman of the Netherlands immerses himself in frigid water to help draw public attention to global warming. In Russia, a high-tension transmission tower is toppled by a storm; and Santa Claus, fresh from his holiday run, sleds in sub-zero Siberia.

A pair of tiny crocs eye each other with suspicion in Germany; we have a close up of Sherkan, the eagle-eyed mascot of a Swiss ice hockey team; and an Indonesian soccer fan pours powder over his body during the final match of the AFF Suzuki Cup between Indonesia and Malaysia.

These and more are part of our photographic journey around the world today.
