Powerful Photos: Part 2

It's that time again! Time for more powerful photos. I hope you liked the last blog entry. If you haven't seen it, I posted it a few days ago. This will wrap up the powerful photos I've found. At least for now. I'm always looking for new and amazing photographs by wonderful artists.

All photos are posted with their original captions. I haven't put my opinion or words on them at all.
