"Sandro Schievenin is a qualified worker employed by the Opera Santa Maria del Fiore that runs the complex of monuments and museum that comprise the Duomo of Florence. He is photographed in the orb that caps the dome on a routine checkup visit. The dome was designed by Brunelleschi. The orb, or the “palla” as it is known in Italy, is a hollow copper sphere, gilded in gold, of 2.30m in diameter and weighs more than 18 tons, placed atop the dome. It was constructed by the workshop of Verrocchio in 1469, and Leonardo da Vinci, an apprentice of Verrocchio at the time, actively worked at designing and constructing the orb, which according to Vasari “required much care and ingenuity, to make it possible to enter the ball from below, and make it proof against damage from the wind.” Later in life, Leonardo recalls the construction, in a note dating from around 1515, “Remember the solders used for soldering the ball on Santa Maria del Fiore in ’69.” This was a time when he was involved in a scheme to manufacture parabolic mirrors, made of a number of facets soldered together."

Photo by @gabrielegalimbertiphoto  From my Toy Stories series: This is Abel, 4, in Nopaltepec, Mexico. Toy Stories is an ongoing project—wherever I travel in the world, I take portraits of children with their favorite toys. I have spent more than 3 years visiting over 50 countries, and I've recorded the spontaneous and natural joy that unites kids, despite their diverse backgrounds. Whether the child owns a veritable fleet of miniature cars or a single stuffed monkey, the pride that they have is moving, funny, and thought-provoking.

Wakodahatchee Wetlands, Florida 2019_ Great Egret parents feed their always hungry chicks by regurgitating the freshly caught fish and small amphibians.  The elegant Great Egret is a dazzling sight in many a North American wetland. Slightly smaller and more svelte than a Great Blue Heron, these are still large birds with impressive wingspans. They hunt in classic heron fashion, standing immobile or wading through wetlands to capture fish with a deadly jab of their yellow bill. Great Egrets were hunted nearly to extinction for their plumes in the late nineteenth century, sparking conservation movements and some of the first laws to protect birds.
Not all young that hatch survive the nestling period. Aggression among nestlings is common and large chicks frequently kill their smaller siblings. This behavior, known as siblicide, is not uncommon among birds such as hawks, owls, and herons, and is often a result of poor breeding conditions in a given year.
Great egrets are diurnal feeders. In sunset, egrets of surrounding areas usually come together, roosting in colonies. They feed in shallow water, walking slowly and looking for prey. And when the prey is spotted, they abruptly thrust the bill into the water, catching it. They will also steal a great part of their food from smaller heron species. After breeding, these birds usually disperse. Egrets, living in mild climates, remain in their breeding areas throughout the winter while those, breeding in northern regions where water freezes during the winter, have to migrate. As many bird species, Great egrets become rather aggressive when it comes to feeding, even if there's abundance of food. Occasionally, even parents can fight for food with their young.
Great egrets are seasonally monogamous, mating once in a mating season and staying with their mates until the end of the season. Usually, males give a number of displays in order to attract the female. Then they select the territory. The breeding season starts in the middle of April, when the birds construct nests.

“Browns Bluff, a basalt tuya, on the east side of the Tabrin Peninsula, which extends from the northernmost point of the Antarctic Peninsula southward into the Weddell Sea. This rock is called Brown’s Bluff due to its steep cliffs and its black to brown hyaloclastile. At the base of this bluff, one can see colonies of gentoo and adelie penguins, as well as other sea birds. I was lucky enough to come to this area as the photography expedition leader for a National Geographic Expedition, one of its many trips to Antarctica. As the light fell behind the bluff, the rock turned a solid black, a mysterious form, in contrast to the reflecting light glittering across the Antarctic Sound. In Antarctica, the light never fully sets, so the challenge is how to bring out an emotional reaction from a scene that is often photographed with the light high in the sky.”

Photo by Annie Griffiths @anniegriffithsphotography | 
Being a woman in photojournalism has its strengths - it makes it easier to blend in, and I get access to the often-underreported world of other gals. But when I had the opportunity to photograph the male-only Jewish ceremony of Lag B’Omer, I had to cut my hair, put on a ball cap, and go undercover as a man! It was a little nerve-racking, but the beauty and visual drama of the ceremony was well worth it.

Photo by @shonephoto Robbie Shone | Caves contain otherworldly formations. Take these mammillaries. They form underwater, and the contrast between the orange and white gives you an idea of the lake level in the past. Lechuguilla, in Carlsbad Caverns National Park, is a beautiful and protected cave. Access is strongly controlled, and only given to experienced cavers with specific scientific or exploration goals within certain parts of the cave.

Photo by @lucianocandisani (Luciano Candisani). i've been chasing for quite a while  a chance to photograph the passage of the Humpbacks by the southern end of Ilhabela, Ponta do Boi, with its centenary lighthouse and many stories and symbolisms. And the one who finally gave me the opportunity was my youngest son, Bruno, who maneuvered the sailboat to leave the whale between us and the lighthouse. I just had the trouble of pushing the button.

Photo by Pete McBride @pedromcbride | Samburu warriors sing and dance in the arid landscape of Kenya. The male warriors, known as moran, are the defenders of the pastoralist Samburu tribe, and singing, clapping, and dancing are important parts of their traditional ceremonies — as well as a way of socializing. Some Samburu have been on the front lines of conservation efforts throughout northern Kenya. To see more from Kenya, follow @pedromcbride. @savetheelephants #Kenya #dance #Samburu

Photo by @paoloverzone | Anne Morgenstern, geoscientist at Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI), stands on an eroding ice complex, which is a very ice-rich type of permafrost deposit, on Kurungnakh Island, Siberia, Russia. New studies by AWI that include rapid thaw processes now have determined that even permafrost currently still very cold could be gone near the surface by the end of this century. "Abrupt thaw processes could potentially increase total permafrost carbon emissions by 40 percent" said Guido Grosse, head of the AWI Permafrost Research section.

Mid-air monkeys – When searching for tigers deep in the pristine forests of India’s Bandhavgarh National Park one of the best alternative photographic subjects that we can stumble upon is a troop of Hanuman langurs. More specifically a group of Hanuman langurs, with babies, that are feeling playful! When that happens then the photographic possibilities are endless but as with all things photography there are many other variables that need to come into play, namely light, backdrop and perspective. On this day all of the elements serendipitously collided and we watched as these young langurs followed a familiar pattern as they leapt between trees. No gap it seems was too big to take on and these remarkably adapted arboreal specialists are a sight to behold when they are in full flow. An adult will leap out of the top of a tree without a second thought and such confidence has its origins at this young age. What fun it must be to be so adept, so athletic and so capable of the most astonishing athletic feats. For us it was relatively straightforward to capture as the repeatable behaviour gave us the chance to observe, learn and then be prepare, readying ourselves. Of course one could never legislate for the luck found in the helicopter tail but this is what the miracle of nature so often provides, little moments unplanned but so appreciated when they arrive. For those that might like to join me in Bandhavgarh for my Tigers of India photo-tour this coming January 2021, hopefully when this bloody virus has long gone, then just a few places remain on my two back-to-back trips. Please email me at tours@andrewparkinson.com for more details
