Photo by @irablockphoto | Novice monks on their way to school use a bamboo bridge to cross the Nam Khan River. The bridge is near the confluence of the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers in Luangprabang, Laos. When the monks would cross the bridge was always a mystery to me. I was told they crossed on their way to school, but school seemed to start at different times each day. I went out at 7am on multiple mornings before I was able to get this Photo. @natgeo@natgeocreative#monks#mekongriver#namkhanriver#luangprabang#laos#students#school#bridge#bamboobridge

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) // With the iconic Matterhorn mountain looming large in the background, two explorers search the surface of the ice for moulins and caves that could lead them down to the contact, where the glacier meets the rock of the valley floor. It is during the middle of the night, when it is the coldest and there is no running meltwater, that it is the safest time to explore these caves.

Photo by @lucianocandisani ( Luciano Candisani ). It is now the squid season in Ilhabela, the Island where I live in the north coast of São Paulo,Brazil. When I have time between the assignments I go offshore with my boat to see what I can find in the green waters. I would love to do a book with my imagens around my home.

Photo by @ljohnphoto for @rippleeffectimages // A young woman skillfully works on her fine embroidery at the @pardadapardadi school in #India. In a country where families often keep their daughters home from school, Pardada Pardadi is an innovative safehaven of academics and skill-building for women and girls. All of the products they make are for sale to help support Pardada Pardadi and, more importantly, for the women to have an independent income. With that income there is freedom to build a new life or improve the lives of their children. This is the heart of this school. As an additional innovation, students also receive ten rupees per day in a savings account for attending. @photography.for.good#pardadapardadi#everydayindia#education#educateagirl#empowerwomen#globalgoals#rippleeffectimages

Photo by @salvarezphoto (Stephen Alvarez) | Chauvet Cave, France The 36,000-year-old paintings in Chauvet are incredible. It is not just their state of preservation, it is that they record a lost world. Bison, Aurochs, Lions and, Rhinoceros are all recorded on the cave's walls. Caves often act as time capsules preserving what things were like in the past. In the case of Chauvet we have an evocative record of what long-extinct animals looked like recorded by attentive artists. There is one detail that sometimes gets overlooked about this cave. The wall is covered by scratch marks from cave bears (Ursus spelaeus). These huge bears hibernated in caves and presumably left the scratch marks while stretching when they woke up. Seeing the paintings in Chauvet was a profound experience and led me to create the non-profit @ancientartarchive. We use 3D and VR technology to share the experience of standing in front of ancient artworks.

Phone photo by @gabrielegalimbertiphoto - Terme San Filippo, Tuscany, Italy - Located between the Mount Amiata, the highest mountain in Tuscany, and the Orcia valley, San Filippo takes its name from the Florentine hermit who retreated here in the 13th century. The water gurgle out of the ground at 50°C and is rich in sulphur, magnesium, calcium and sulphur bicarbonate, believed to be good for skin conditions and respiratory disorders. On the way that brings to the town a small wooden bridge on the right leads into the woods and the to the green water that fills the pools that the river flows into. Most spectacular of all is the Fosso Bianco also known as La Balena (the whale), a series of calcareous rock formations that hang over the water in a series of stalactites. San Filippo's milky mineral water flows through the pools and along the river, banked by bamboo, for miles. #sanfilippo#hotspring#tuscany#water#terme#italy#amiata#relax#nature

Photo by @chien_chi_chang // I have followed and photographed twenty families in Chinatown, and those relationships are now culminating in a tri-generational drama. The people in these pictures were all willing to sacrifice their immediate comfort to realize the dream of giving their children a "better" life. Some of that first wave of immigrants have now returned to China to enjoy the rest of their lives in prosperity, with family members they have not seen for decades. Others are trying to live the American dream. The common thread, the universal quality in this work, is the essential human need to hold hope in your hands. I will be forever grateful to the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund for the support, both financial and spiritual, that has allowed me to hope. To hope that I could do what had never been done before—to make these invisible families, with their sufferings and triumphs, at last, visible. #MagnumPhotos#cccontheroad

Photo by @TimLaman. Costa’s Hummingbird male with wings spread. I love capturing little moments in hummingbird’s lives, not only photographing them at flowers. They are creatures of habit, so by following their movements around the gardens, I learned their favorite perches, and could set up and be ready to shoot the moment they came in for a landing. It just requires a bit of patience…. Image from my current gallery exhibition on the “Birds of Sunnylands” at the Sunnyland Center in Rancho Mirage, California. If you’re in the Palm Springs vicinity this winter, please check it my exhibit! Prints are also available of all my bird images from the Coachella valley at www.timlamanfineart.com or see link in profile @TimLaman.#hummingbird#birds,#wildlifephotography#sunnylands#coachellavalley#shotonRED@reddigitalcinema

Photo by @MichaelGeorge // Last summer I spent eight full days in Balboa Park in San Diego for @natgeotravel to document everything that goes on in that green oasis. Eight days of sunrise & sunset, eight days of talking to strangers, eight days of witnessing bike races & archery & bocce ball. On the seventh day I discovered these twisted trees on a ridge, and I thought they looked like set pieces from Lord of the Rings, or an ancient olive grove. I snapped a few photos and only noticed upon first review the lone figure in the distance, which I think makes this image complete. (Swipe for details). // #balboapark#sandiego#california#twistedtrees#grove#forest
