Hashtag Highlight: #portraitsinpuddles
Earlier this year, Adam Elkins (@bigmanjapan) began a hashtag series called #portraitsinpuddles, featuring photos of people standing next to puddles, their reflections cast in the water below. For his portraits, Adam splits the frame between the physical and reflected, showing his subject in the top half and their reflection in the bottom half of his photos.
A few other Instagrammers have discovered Adam’s tag and added portraits of their own. The next time you’re out with a friend after a rainy day, try your hand at a #portraitsinpuddles photo!

I’ve been about that yarn braid life. From 2010 - 2012. 2013 is another story. I haven’t done that much this year because of the length at which I wear them, pulls way too much and I experienced a teeny bit of hair thinning around my edges which naturally caused me to have a massive panic attack. - Yagazie
Angelina Jolie has appealed to the United Nations Security Council to try and stop sexual violence in war zones. The actress, who is also a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations, told members it was “their responsibility” to act. She said: “Rape is a tool of war. It is an act of aggression and a crime against humanity.”
"It is inflicted intentionally to destroy the woman, the family and the community. It ruins lives and fuels conflict.
The United Nations charter is clear. You, the Security Council, have primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.”
After Angelina spoke, the UN Security Council voted unanimously to pass a resolution recognising that rape can exacerbate conflicts and delay peace. (Report by Sarah Johnston).
