Photo by Hamad I Mohammed. This image grabbed me the moment I saw it. The orange flame and swirling fumes; the intensity of the young man’s eyes. This tells a story of fearlessness and rebellion. While I’ve never been on the front lines of a full scale rebellion like what is happening in Bahrain, these kinds of photos inspire me to keep advancing my craft and pushing my limits.

For a regular dose of great photography, I recommend following Wall Street Journal’s Photo Journal, where I found this gem.
