The football team in Hazleton is very reflective of the town’s dramatic demographic changes. The high school principal Rocco Petrone, who used to be the football coach, said the team was mostly white 15 years ago. Now almost half the players are minorities. The high school is 59% Latino and 38 % white. These images were taken at Crestwood High School before and after Hazleton’s big win. The students told me they were especially nervous for this game because they were playing the “uppity white school” where racial slurs had been yelled at them during basketball games. One cheerleading coach said she’s heard Crestwood students scream. “Go back and get your green card.”
These images are part of the story, “The Rising Anxiety of White America,” for the April issue of National Geographic on race

In honor of #EarthDay, the goal is to take photos and videos inspired by the natural world for #WHP🌲, like this purple beauty from Rubén Lombardozzi (@rubenslombardo).
Get outside. Whether you hike in a city park or escape away to a lake for the weekend, show us how Mother Earth comes to life in your corner of the world. Pull back your images to show the grandeur of the landscape. Include people in the frame for scale.
Look for ways that nature emerges in everyday urban scenes — think vines crawling up an old brick factory building, or birds perched along the balcony railings overlooking the farmers market.
Follow the light. The sun gives the world a magical glow, especially in the early morning blue hour or the late afternoon golden hour.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHP🌲 hashtag only to photos and videos shared 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 shared over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.


Original series with @natalyosmann. Remembering the best and favourite ones that I took and posting them. Our project is 7 years old and whole generation has changed since the beginning. Have you seen this one before?

#followmeto Hollywood, which was one of the most extreme photos we ever took. It was the time, when I surprised Nataly with a helicopter without doors :) #следуйзамной к Голливудским Холмам. Наш проект существует уже 7 лет и за это время сменилось целое поколение. Нам интересно - видели ли вы эту фотографию раньше? :)

“This was the day that my favorite cheetah named "Malaika” (which means Angel in Swahili) had five suitors,“ writes #YourShotPhotographer Clement Kiragu. "She fought them for a whole 24 hours as she wasn’t ready to mate. It was my first time witnessing five male cheetahs going for one female. It was a day filled with action and suspense. Definitely a day I will never forget.”

Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads. Our community votes for their favorite photo from the selection, and the Top Shot is showcased on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.
