It was politely brought to my attention that my post on March 19th 2013 with the picture of Murphy’s Motorcycle Laws might have offended some folks! Specifically #3.

Thanks for understanding and also for bringing any concerns to our attention.

|El Hadj Omar BONGO Ondimba – one of the longest-serving heads of state in the world – dominated the country’s political scene for four decades (1967-2009) following independence from France in 1960. President BONGO introduced a nominal multiparty system and a new constitution in the early 1990s. However, allegations of electoral fraud during local elections in 2002-03 and the presidential elections in 2005 exposed the weaknesses of formal political structures in Gabon. Following President BONGO’s death in 2009, new elections in brought Ali Ben BONGO, son of the former president, to power. Despite constrained political conditions, Gabon’s small population, abundant natural resources, and considerable foreign support have helped make it one of the more prosperous and stable African countries.

It’s hard to believe we’re at the halfway point for 2012. With that, here are the Sifter’s Top 50 ‘Pictures of the Day‘ for this year. If any image really intrigues you, be sure to click the title link or picture itself. That will take you to the individual post page where you can find out more information.
Enjoy! And stay Sifty my friends
I am so envious of people who know photography. I lack an artistic side and it shows not only in my pictures I take but my poor video editing. I have an attention span of a gnat and really should learn to take the time to read and learn more about how to be a better photographer and videographer. When I come across pictures of nature, animals of any kind that make an impression on me I feel I need to share them. #47 breaks my heart. Enjoy!
Culture Buzz Here’s a collection of the best animal photojournalism of the year. It was a sad, funny, but overall cute year for animal photos.
