G8 Photo: World Leaders Without Ties, An Unusual Sight

Leaders of the most powerful nations in the world gathered in Northern Ireland this week for the meeting of the G8. The setting -- described by the Associate Press as a "remote golf resort" near Enniskilen -- led many of the international figures to give up on their more formal attire and try a moment without a tie.

Never thought you'd see ten world leaders without their favorite attribute? Take a look at the photo below.

First row: Italy's Prime Minister Enrico Letta, British Prime Minister David Cameron, U.S. President Barack Obama, French President Francois Hollande and President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barosso.

Second row: Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, Northern Ireland's Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness, Northern Ireland's First Minister Peter Robinson, Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
