Photos of the Week: 4/26-5/2

Today, a little something different: A collection of images from around the world over the past seven days, rather than a single story or theme. 35 photos covering subjects ranging from a moonrise above St. Petersburg, to a wooden Volkswagen Beetle, election violence in Iraq, a videogame discovery in a landfill, a pig rescue, and much more. This is an experiment, please let me know if "Photos of the Week" is something you'd like to see more of in the future, either in the comments below, or however you like.
