“In an institution there is no possibility of recovery because there is no freedom.” Ruzica Vidakovic (left) met her husband Zoran Stih (right) when they were living in ‘Home for the Insane’ in Osijek, Croatia. Zoran developed PTSD during the war and Ruzica had a “nervous breakdown” during a violent first marriage. While living in the institution they couldn’t be together; it was against the rules. Now they live independently in an apartment in the city. “Before I met her I was on the bottom rung of life. Now that I’ve met her, I’m on the top of life.”

Rehabilitation cannot take place behind the high walls of an institution. In four years, 172 out of 200 people have moved from ‘Home for the Insane’ into apartments. Staff have trained to serve as assistants in the community. For many beneficiaries it is the first time they’ve experienced true freedom. This facility in Osijek is the only one out of 26 in the country to implement the UN convention to deinstitutionalize.

Leaves turn into an autumnal rainbow along the Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire. "This is my favorite place on the whole scenic route," says #YourShotPhotographer Manish Mamtani. "I always fly my drone here to capture the curve of the road and moving cars."

Photograph by @paulnicklen // On behalf of all cetacean species on this planet, here is to celebrating #WorldWhaleDay. In today’s day and age it is getting more and more challenging to find success stories in nature. Fortunately, humpback whale populations have bounced back to near historic numbers after nearly being hunted to extinction in many areas. What species of cetacean is called a whale but in reality is a dolphin? Go to @paulnicklen to find out. #follow #whale #nature #naturelovers #instagood #sunset #beauty

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmoveit
Inspired by the Winter Olympics, this weekend’s goal is to create photos and videos celebrating the power of movement, as in this featured photo by Thai Haong (@loewe7).
You don’t have to be an athlete to capture the everyday action around you, like a spontaneous trampoline session or a daily run through the park. Keep an eye out for repeating shapes or colorful backdrops to elevate your images.
Play with different viewpoints to maximize energy. Make us feel the drama with intense expressions and extreme angles, like an unexpected selfie during an exhilarating cheerleading practice.
Use creative tools like slow-motion or time-lapse to add another layer of depth to your submission. Capture the blur from a crashing wave while surfing or a freeze frame of a mid-air jump in order to transport us into the action.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPmoveit hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
