In 1881, the Earp brothers and the Clanton-McLaury gang faced off in the legendary gunfight at the O.K. Corral. The 30-second shootout between the lawmen and outlaws in Tombstone, Arizona, came to symbolize the Wild West in the collective American imagination. Find out what the town of Tombstone is like today.
 
 
 
 
Photo of the Day
 
First I was amazed by the light shafts going throught the structure of this "Communist style" building. It looks like a cathedral and than the poor man walked in the scene wit his plastic Lidl bag. It contrasts in my eyes - poverty vs something divine. Ugliness vs beauty. And man's loneliness...these are the reason I made this photo.
