    Experience the world through the eyes of National Geographic photographers.

    Photo by @williamalbertallard / Venice, Italy, 1969. This is from my very first trip to Italy, where I made pictures of Venice for a National Geographic book. On the day of the most important regatta on the Grand Canal, I had arranged to photograph from the window of an apartment overlooking a sweeping curve in the canal. I used a Zeiss Hologon Ultrawide with a fixed 15 mm lens to capture this flowing procession of colorful gondolas, overlooked by observers on the balconies of the ancient stone and brick buildings. The image is reminiscent of a painting.
 
That camera was stolen from me later that year as I walked along a street in Saigon, grabbed from my hand by a youngster riding on one of the countless motor scooters buzzing through the streets of southern Vietnam. For more images of Venice and other assignments spanning a five-decade career, follow me @williamalbertallard. #venice #italy #canal #regatta #filmphotography

    Photos by Yagazie Emezi @yagazieemezi / These are scenes from peaceful protests at Lekki Toll Gate, in Lagos, one of many locations across Nigeria where youth have been making a stand against police brutality for two weeks. On October 20 around 7 p.m., security cameras were reported to have been removed from the toll gate and surrounding lights turned off, when the Nigerian military showed up and started shooting into the crowd. A number of protesters were injured and killed.

Earlier in the day, an impromptu 24-hour curfew had been announced, stating the move was an attempt to arrest “criminals and miscreants hiding under the umbrella of these protests.“

Protesters remained at the toll gate, singing the national anthem and waving green and white flags. As the shooting was underway, the curfew was extended to 9 p.m. via a tweet from state officials. The president has yet to make a public statement.

    Photos by Keith Ladzinski @ladzinski / On October 17, the CalWood fire sprang up in the foothills of Boulder County, Colorado. In a single day, the fire had already consumed over 5,000 acres (2,000 ha) and had broken the record for the largest fire in county history. As of today, the fire is 17% contained and has burned over 9,000 acres, forcing nearly 3,000 evacuations. The total damage is still undetermined. This comes in leu of the already catastrophic Cameron Peak Fire, Colorado’s largest in recorded history, which is still burning and has already enveloped over 200,000 acres (80,000 ha).

    Photo by Anastasia Taylor-Lind @anastasiatl / Ghazanchetsots cathedral in Shushi, Nagorno-Karabakh, was shelled on October 8. After more than 20 years of relative calm, fighting between Azeri and Armenian forces has been escalating since  September 27, causing casualties and inflicting suffering on all sides. I worked in the region in 2011, when I photographed the cathedral. Here, Shushanik Hayrapetyan and Vitaliy Ghangiryan leave the cathedral after getting married. #nagornokarabakh

    Photo by @amivitale / Hilary Zaranek rides her horse as a storm moves in at the Crazy D ranch outside Bozeman, Montana. The Crazy D is the winter pasture for the J Bar L Ranch. Hilary is a @natgeo explorer and an extraordinary woman who founded the first range-rider program in the Tom Miner Basin, which borders Yellowstone National Park. She studies bear and wolf behavior, tracks wildlife, and moves cattle through daily to create a better understanding among landowners and cattle managers.

    Photo by Karla Gachet @kchete77 / Daniel Montes, 30, harvests grapes in Caruthers, California, during an August heat wave. These grapes will be used to make raisins; the harvest is called "la tabla," referring to the piece of paper where they place them. Workers get paid by the number of "tablas" they fill up. Each one is worth 33 cents, and the harvesters usually do between 250 to 400 tablas a day, depending on how much fruit the vines contain. Montes has been working in the fields since he was 20 years old. According to law, when the temperature reaches 80°F (26°C), the contractors should provide shade where the workers can take breaks. They should be allowed to take a paid, five-minute (or as long as needed) break if they start feeling ill. When the temperature reaches 95°F (35°C), they should be given a 10-minute break, and there should be a plan on how to proceed in case of an emergency. #HEAT #migrantfarmworkers #CentralValley

    Ode to Alaska by @jewel / Alaska is the last frontier. It’s a wild, vast land no fence can tame. Alps challenge the sky on the white wings of glaciers, the tips of which touch the taciturn sea in their slow migration. Bent grass tells of a bear’s quiet wandering. The songs of wolves fill the night skies. The northern lights are a spectacle beyond any psychedelic. Alaska is one of the last truly wild places, a treasure. A teacher of scale and proportion. Here you remember you are not bigger than nature. You do not control nature. Here you learn the exhale of receding tides and autumn days. The exuberant inhale of salmon rushing rivers. You learn to respect and care for Mother, and in turn you learn what it is to be cared for. Alaska raised me. Taught me what water weighs as I scram-bled from streams with a five-gallon bucket for the garden. Alaska taught me how hard it is to grow food, and how valuable it is. I learned that resilience is diversity, and the dangers of a monoculture. Biodiversity translated into diversity of thought—of adapting by being in tune with the needs of our surroundings. Alaska reminds us what it is to be wild. Nature is never neurotic, it never worries or has anxiety. If I am anxious, I know I am out of harmony with nature. Alaska is always here, reminding us how to be human.

    Ode to Arizona by @gabbygiffords / I grew up in Tucson learning to ride horses and loving the heat. Whether you’re a resident or a visitor, the majesty of Arizona’s deserts quickly reveals itself to your senses: both the stunning, expansive views and the comforting way creosote emits the smell of earth when it rains. Come to Arizona, and you’ll find community. I’ve discovered—in cities, desert towns, tribal communities, and ranches—the richness and vibrancy of the area’s history and diversity. You learn to love the people and food of Arizona, respect the land we live on now, and embrace life in the Southwest.

    Ode to Texas by @evalongoria / In this one expansive state, there are the surfers in a sparkling city by the sea; the big, bustling cities of Houston and Dallas; the border; and the place most important to me, our ranch. Here, in land granted to my family in 1603, my sisters and I would rise early, grab a tortilla, and spend the day running through the woods. Dad worked the cattle, pigs, and chickens and grew crops of corn or watermelon. We girls would run. No other neighbor or house in sight. Just quiet. We’d watch a storm roll in. And on a clear night, climb to our roof to gaze at all the stars. In Texas, I learned to read the big sky. This is the land built by generations of Spanish explorers, indigenous tribes, Tejanos, and Irish. Sometimes we forget these brave, ambitious people are what made us strong. They are what we celebrate. This is where I have my land, my roots. Texas is home.

    Ode to Iowa by Peggy Whitson @astro_peggy / “To Be of the Earth” was a poem I wrote as a kid. For me those words describe rolling hillsides of corn and soybeans that make up Iowa. Black Angus leisurely grazing the pastures of timothy and clover, calves frolicking beside. A life, and a way of life, that nurtured and supported my dreams.

    Ode to Mississippi by @robinrobertsgma / In Mississippi, the Gulf Coast is majestic and serene, the food is fried, and warmth is everywhere. I don’t mean just the weather, but there’s warmth in the music of the blues, in the soul service gospel I heard at my church as a child, and in the people. When you see someone in Pass Christian, the quintessential small town where I grew up, you stop and wave. New to town? A neighbor will bring a Bundt cake. That’s just what you do. We were a military family, and I grew up moving all the time. But when it came time for my father to retire from the U.S. Air Force, the Roberts family got to decide where we would put down our roots. I am proud to say we chose Mississippi. It is home.

    Ode to Michigan by James Earl Jones / For many, Michigan means lakes and football, icy cold winters bundled up or summers spent hanging out on hot city streets. Or for me, time spent in church with my grandparents or on stage at a school theater reciting lines. But we know Michigan is really about the people with big open hearts, like the kind teacher who taught me to stand up and speak. Michigan is a place where a young boy can find his true voice.
