The Week in Pictures: Jan. 12 - 19

This week’s edit was surprisingly difficult. My favorite images are Mike Eliason’s picture of the dramatic car wreck rescue, Kevin Frayer’s picture of a man waiting in his underwear while a street tailor alters his pants, and Robin Loznak’s perfect visual joke of the chicken that crossed the road.

Fowl play in Oregon, a marathon sled dog race in France, a street tailor in India, a wrecked cruise liner in Italy and more.
