[#TBT From September 19, 2017 ] Top Shot: The Journey | Photograph by Asaf Ud Daula
#YourShotPhotographer Asaf Ud Daula captured this moment of travelers riding on-top of a train through Bangladesh. “While traveling home some riders take risks by riding on-top of the train when there is no room in the cars,” writes Daula. “Love the use of motion here in this image,” writes Your Shot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams). “I’ve seen many images of these train rides before but love how you added a layer of motion to this image that makes it come to life. Great perspective as well from the top of the train.” This image was selected for the Daily Dozen on September 19, 2017.

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.


Photo by @ismailferdous | In North India, it is traditional for a groom to arrive at his wedding on a horse with his wedding party - it’s called a baraat. This is Munveer Bhangoo’s baraat at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Dana Point, CA. He, his family and his friends arrive, singing and dancing to be welcomed by Avnish's family. Bhangoo, a Sikh American, grew up in Bakersfield, California, is a doctor, as is his father, one of his brothers, and the woman he is about to marry.
When people say “Indian wedding” it’s a very generalized concept. For this @natgeo South Asian American story, I photographed Gujarati, South Indian and Sikh weddings in the United States. There are so many cultures and religious traditions within India and therefore Indian weddings, even in America, are diverse and observed in different ways. At each wedding I had a unique and miraculous experience.

GIFs by @martinamartian
For Martina Martian (@martinamartian), GIFs aren’t just a form of art, they’re a mood-lifter. “Even the dullest photo or the dullest conversation can be made more fun with a GIF,” says Martina, an artist from Sydney, Australia. When she started creating GIFs two years ago, they were heavily 80s and 90s inspired. “Only through creating every single day did I start to trust my own instincts as an artist and grow into my personal style,” she says.
Martina, who finds inspiration in everything from travel to conversations with friends, says the challenge in creating GIFs is keeping them simple while figuring how your audience is going to interact with them: “GIFs are used as a communication tool as well as something to look at. I like having to consider how someone would use the GIF on their own photos or conversations. It’s about communicating ideas and feelings vividly in just a few seconds.” Starting today, you can use GIFs in your Direct messages. Check out our story to learn more.

Photo by @FransLanting Black rhinos make up for poor eyesight with a keen sense of smell, so if you want to approach one it’s best to do that from a downwind direction. Every poacher knows that, but against their powerful guns often equipped with silencers a rhino’s sense of smell is no defense at all. That is why we need to draw attention to the rhino’s plight on Sept 22—World Rhino Day and support the organizations that are making a real difference in this war against wildlife. Check out the links below and follow us @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more encounters with rhinos and learn what you can do. @LeonardodiCapriofdn @WildAid @World_Wildlife @Lewa_Wildlife #WildAid #worldrhinoday #Rhino #SaveTheRhino #AspinallFoundationn #endangered #protection #naturelovers


Fotografía y texto de Octavio Aburto - @octavioaburto | En mi travesía por los manglares de las Islas Galápagos con @darwinfound, logramos visitar 50 de estos pequeños bosques alrededor de cinco islas: Fernandina, Isabel, Santa Cruz, Floreana y San Cristóbal. Cada bosque era un lugar fascinante, lleno de vida y secretos por descubrir. Lo que más me impresionó, fue observar la vida abundante que nace y se desarrolla en estos hábitats tan hostiles. Las iguanas marinas, endémicas de estas islas, parecían malhumorados guardianes en las bocas de estas lagunas costeras. Atravesar por estas bocas angostas y con todos estos ojos observándote, hizo que mi mente volara e imaginará lo que Darwin experimento cuando trabajó en estas maravillosas islas.
