I love this unassuming shot of Sarkozy and Medvedev's shadow on the BBC's "day in pictures" feature:

The caption reads:

French President Nicolas Sarkozy visits Moscow to discuss the crisis in Georgia with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, whose shadow is seen on the right.

Nothing says "dangerously looming shadowy nation" quite like a foreign leader's silhouette pitted alongside the brightly-lit EU president. Really this is a pitiful attempt at fear-mongering, and I resent it.
