Photo by Melissa Farlow @melissafarlow | It was a thrill to hear a splash and turn to see the tail of a humpback whale in the Lynn Canal when I was on assignment for NatGeo in Alaska. I was there to photograph the Tongass National Forest and the entire ecosystem. It was an awakening into another world for a girl that grew up in landlocked Indiana. @natgeo @natgeofineart @natgeoimagecollection #alaska #tongass

Photo by Pete McBride @pedromcbride | “Where’s the switch?” asked the viewer next to me, as if questioning the geyser itself. “Oh, just down there by the core on the left,” I responded jokingly. “Oh...can I see it?” It is great to see people coming out in droves to admire nature’s beauty. But it is amazing how removed we continue to grow from it — even if Old Faithful is somewhat predictable. #oldfaithful #yellowstone #nature #petemcbride

Photo by @amivitale for @rippleeffectimages. Halima lives in the village of Dakrin Knowriya, and each week they watch the banks of the nearby Brahmaputra River crumble away a little more. Rising waters threaten the whole nation of Bangladesh, and frequent and unpredictable storms ravage the shrinking coastline several times a year, displacing millions.

As the world drags their feet to address climate change, the people of Bangladesh are already suffering the consequences. With an average population density of 28,000 people per square mile, storms can wash away farms & homes, and isolate vulnerable people. @friendshipngo Hospital is working to help deliver lifesaving care to people along the Bangladesh coast who can only be reached by water.

Photograph by @andyparkinsonphoto/@thephotosociety 
Mountain hare foot stretching –This image is a salient reminder that even the most mundane or average encounter can, with a little bit of luck, yield surprisingly interesting results. It was also one of those rare occasions where I wished that I had either a tripod or a monopod with which to work though such occasions for me in the mountains are few and far between. I generally find tripods to be quite unwieldy, limiting my flexibility and responsiveness but this is worth noting that these feelings apply only to when I’m shooting in the mountains, at other times tripods are an absolute essential. The hare meanwhile is one that I and a number of other photographers know very well, a hare by the name of Mrs Grey and an individual that approached respectfully and cautiously can be incredibly confiding. On this day she was sitting on a favoured elevated perch but as is so often the case with mountain hares there were extended periods of inactivity interspersed with very brief moments of grooming, stretching or feeding. In order to shoot at eye level I was actually standing close by but, shooting with a weighty 200-400mm lens I was unable to simply stand there holding this heavy lens to my eye. Instead I simply held it near to my waist and then, if and when Mrs Grey did decide to do something then I could slowly raise it at the appropriate time. Such techniques are not exactly ideal and I’d have much preferred to have simply stood stock still with my eye permanently against the viewfinder of my tripod/monopod supported camera and lens but this was not to be. Instead I was confronted with the frustration of burning arms and heavy breathing as I tried in vain to resist the fatigue that can occur when handholding. The resulting image therefore was captured much more by luck than judgement, fortuitous timing as opposed to intelligent planning, an image nonetheless that I felt pleased to capture.

Photo by @williamalbertallard // Stan Kendall at the Miner’s Club Bar – Mountain City, Nevada, 1979
As part of my bi-annual flash sale, I am offering this signed 6” x 9” image on a 9” x 11” paper at $100 for a three week. Visit @williamalbertallard and click on the link in my profile to purchase a signed print.
The buckaroo crew and I went in one day to get supplies at the tiny hamlet of Mountain City, Nevada. Far from being a city, the community consisted then, as I recall, of a couple of bars and a grocery store. There may have been more, I think there may have been a brothel. Brothels are legal in Nevada; it’s been a long time and it’s hard to remember. The picture of Stan Kendall was made in late afternoon and there was sunlight blasting through the door of the Miner’s Club and there was lots of red: Stan’s shirt, the bar’s curtains, the wainscoting of the bar, and the tops of the bar stools. It was if the entire room was bleeding. Stan is kind of slumped there on the stool, a faraway look on his face. He had what I called back then, that “leaving look.” And he did so the next day, packing up his bedroll and saddle, picking up his pay, and heading to another job on another ranch somewhere down the road.
Follow me @williamalbertallard for more images of the American West and other assignments spanning a five-decade career.

Photo/Video by @RobertClarkphoto // I often get asked how I light my pictures for @NatGeo, while I have not a formula that I use for each of the 50 assignments that I have completed, I do have a certain approach that seems to work.
For example, Clonycavan Man was shot in the Irish National Museum, we had a limited amount of time and I could not pull him out of the case he was displayed in. So I borrowed a ladder and placed the camera on the top of the case and put the camera on autofocus and shot directly to the laptop.
I think I made abut 60 lighting changes before I got to the final image.
As far as the Clonycavan Man, with his hair piled high above the leathery skin, he is one of the hundreds of bodies from the bogs of northern Europe. The finds date from 400 BCE (Before Common Era) to 400 CE (Common Era) in the Iron Age. The hair is red because the body and hair absorb the tannin from the soil, much like leather is tanned in a commercial process, just over hundreds of years. 
A the time of the burial the regions Celtic and Germanic population thought of the bogs as entrances to the world of the supernatural. 
Thank you @AlexDisuvero for the assistant on this project, many moons ago.

Photo by @stephenedwardferry // Berlin, November, 1989

On the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall,  I am looking back at my memories (both inside my head and inside my files) of that amazing historical moment.  In the company of great photojournalists such as Alexandra Avakian (who took to my mind ,the most iconic image of the event), Chris Morris, the incomparable Alfred Yaghobzadeh, Gilles Peress, Anthony Suau, Ron Haviv and Chip Hires I worked day and night to the point of sheer exhaustion,  fueled by a sense of history and the elating atmosphere of liberation in the air. 
Among many anecdotes, I remember taking my film to the airport to be sent to Paris (I worked for the French-American agency Gamma-Liaison at the time, on assignment for Time magazine) in the hands of a fellow photographer. In those days, long before digital photographer was even in the womb,  that’s how we did it.  There I met a distinguished French Photographer, his arms full of envelopes of film from numerous colleagues, ready to board his flight, and I reminded him to please not pass the film through x-ray machines en route to Paris.  He amusedly said, “I know that.” Turns out, to my embarrassment, that was none other than the legendary Raymond Depardon, who took not only one of the most memorable pictures of 1989 but also historic images of the Wall as it was being built.

Photo by @gerdludwig | A mural on a stretch of the Berlin Wall called East Side Gallery symbolically depicts East Germany’s most common vehicle, the Trabant (sometimes called a “spark plug with a roof,”), breaking through the wall. The remnants of the Berlin Wall are amongst Berlin's most photographed tourist attractions.

The Trabant is often seen as an icon for former East Germany and the demise of the entire Eastern Bloc—footage of Trabants driven from East to West Germany was broadcast internationally following the fall of the Berlin Wall. Some Germans were on waiting lists for up to thirteen years for the Trabant, which (in the 1980s) had no headlight or turn signal indicators, no fuel gauge or speedometer, as well as required drivers to pour the fuel directly under the hood.

Today, November 9th marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the barrier that separated East and West Berlin from 1961 to 1989. The wall completely encircled West Berlin, and a “death strip” was added on the East German side in the years following initial construction. Officially, 138 people died trying to escape from East to West.

My first trip to Cedar Mesa was over 30 years ago. One January I made the long drive from Tennessee and spent a frigid week in Grand Gulch marveling at the canyon, the archeology and the artwork. 30 years later this place has still captured my heart and imagination. It’s a privilege to be back here working on an @insidenatgeo grant about ancient artwork contained in 8 western National Monuments that have been studied for reduction by the Department of the Interior. Perhaps the greatest privilege is working with representatives of @protectbearsears who’s ancestral home I am in. For more images from this and other projects follow me @salvarezphoto and my non-profit @ancientartarchive as we preserve humanity’s oldest stories.

Photos by Gabriele Galimberti @gabrielegalimbertiphoto - Grandmas are the best cooks! - Boonlom, 69 - Thailand - A 69-year-old grandmother of the young Mai (in the photo between the hi-fi speakers), all her life spent in Bangkok, Boonlom considers herself the best cook of her neighbourhood. Until a few years ago she used to run a small street restaurant, the typical kind you find everywhere around the South-East of Asia, where people eat simple and quick dishes, standing or sitting on stalls on the street borders. At present her restaurant is run by one of her daughters, who has changed it slightly: in what functioned as their old garage, her daughter has arranged four squared tables and people can finally eat properly, sitting at them! The average cost of a full meal at her restaurant rarely goes beyond two dollars! / KAI YAT SAI (stuffed omelette) Ingredients for 2 people: - 100 gr minced pork - 3 eggs - seed oil, soya sauce, fish sauce, salt, pepper, sugar - two tomatoes, one white onion and 5 baby corns - a small bowl of steamed rice PREPARATION OF THE FILLING: Mince 100gr of pork. Chop the onion and dice the tomatoes. Chop the baby corns. Ina wok put a spoon of seed oil and heat until the oil is hot enough, then, add the pork and cook for one minute. Add a spoon of soya sauce. Het for one more minute and add the onion, tomatoes, baby corns, a spoon of sugar and one of fish sauce. Cook everything together for 3 minutes. PREPARATION OF THE OMELETTE: Take the eggs and whisk them with a pinch of salt. In a wok heat some oil and, then, drain it so as to leave only a greasy layer on the wok. Pour the eggs in the wok and heat for slightly more than a minute, moving the wok circularly to obtain a thin and large omelette. Place the filling in its centre and wrap the omelette around it. Cook the omelette for one more minute, turning it a couple of times. The dish is ready to be eaten. #grandma #food #thailand
