It's not every day that elephants take to New York City's famed Fifth Avenue. This parade marked the arrival of Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus. With the Empire State Building looming large in the background, this this Nick Machalaba photograph, which appeared in the April 1972 W magazine, manages to give the traditional cityscape a surreal touch.
