Over the past month, we've been drawn to stunning snapshots of special moments in sports, politics, art, and more. An iconic royal portrait of Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their little prince made headlines early in August along with striking pictures of nature, street festivals, and Summer beach days. There were sweet images of the Obama family vacation, moving snapshots of activists and protestors, plus gorgeous pictures of landscapes, art exhibits, and traditional events. As we welcome a new month, take a quick look back at some of August's best photos from around the globe!
