From Vegas to the Moon to the Edge of the Earth: The Top 10 Photos of the Week

We here at the Houston Press have long believed that some of the best photographers in the world live right here in Houston. Between the slideshows and blogs we publish and the images you share with us in our Flickr Pool, we see tons of amazing photos every week, and this is our chance to celebrate our favorites.

This week's photos include a living legend, trips to Vegas and the end of the world, modern pop royalty, a different look at a furry friend and more. Enjoy.
