Rounding out this week is a series of images I found on Buzzfeed. Buzzfeed, you say? Yup. Why not.

What I want to know is, did someone at Buzzfeed compile these into a collection? Or is this a Getty images collection that they posted up because it started making the internet rounds? They don’t really say. But they do include some color photos! So maybe go check it out?
