A section of the controversial US-Mexico border fence expansion project crosses previously pristine desert sands at sunrise on March 14, 2009, between Yuma, Arizona and Calexico, California. The barrier stands 15 feet tall and sits on top of the sand so it can lifted by a machine and repositioned whenever the migrating desert dunes begin to bury it. The almost seven miles of floating fence cost about $6 million per mile to build. (David McNew/Getty Images)

Thousands of people in the streets of Chicago on November 17th in a nationally coordinated day of action. Civil disobedience blocking the LaSalle bridge, banner drops, encircling the entire Chicago Board of Trade, a march through downtown Chicago zigging and zagging showing the police that they are not our “pied piper” as I heard one cop say.
I didn’t take this photo, but I have kayaked right up to this point. This photo is excellent, and it doesn’t even begin to capture the immense beauty of New Zealand’s Fjordlands. A seriously amazing place.
If you go to New Zealand, shell out the extra cash to book an overnight kayaking trip in Doubtful Sound. (And bring insect repellant.)
