India is filled with religious sites, but one of the most iconic is the Baha'i Lotus Temple, a starkly white temple in the shape of a partially blooming lotus flower. Visitors get a brief explanation of the Bahai faith and then are allowed in the inner sanctuary for quiet contemplation. (AP Photo/Altaf Qadri)

Volunteers and employees for Bristol Brewing are working through the day to make sure that there will be a Pumpkin Ale this year. A volunteer has four bottles held back to purchase. The wildly popular beer sells out by the end of the day it is sold. The proceeds go to the Venetucci Farm. This year Venetucci got a double whammy with a hail storm that wiped out their crop and then with the polluted Fountain water, none of their vegetables were useable. photo by Jerilee Bennett,The Gazette
