Photo by Hannah Reyes Morales @hannahreyesmorales | A gray day out at sea was lit up by this spear fisherman. I've met some remarkable small-scale fisherfolk out here in the islands of the Philippines. For our archipelago, located in the center of the world's marine biodiversity, fishing is a way of life for many coastal communities. They know the language of the sea, they help scientists identify species of fish, they understand weather patterns intimately by looking out into the horizon. They are also among the first to witness the devastation happening in our oceans. Follow me @hannahreyesmorales for more stories from the #Philippines, and beyond. #Surigao #fishing

Photo by @Chrisburkard | It’s these lights that keep me coming back– I’ve been to Iceland over 30 times (and have many more trips there planned) and this spectacle is one of the reasons I’m so drawn to the small island country. There’s something special about its people and much of the landscapes themselves are breathtaking as well, but standing below this natural phenomenon is inexplicable. The scientific term for this display is an aurora, specifically an Aurora Borealis for the northern hemisphere, which is pictured above. On the simplest level, these bright lights are actually collisions between electrically charged particles emitted from the sun and gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere. I always seek situations where the outdoors makes me feel small, and knowing this event stems from particles shot all the way from the sun makes me feel just about as small as I can imagine. It was extra humbling to take in this view with Heiðar Logi, an Icelandic local who has spent much time under these colors, but is still just as awe-struck as I am every time he sees them.

“I’ve had moments of makeup inspiration that come in the middle of the night. If the urge is strong enough, I’ll paint it at 3 a.m.,” says 22-year-old makeup artist, filmmaker and musician Kiko Nafig (@kikopaint). “I use my face as a canvas because it’s convenient, but the intent is to create something outside of my own self. It’s almost an attempt at an ‘anti-selfie.’”

Sunset on the Salar // As the sun dropped below the horizon, the temperatures plummeted from the mid 80’s to the low 20’s. Wrapped up in heavy coats and blankets we watched the stars twinkle into existence over the salt.⁣

Many thanks to the @bolivianamericanchamber & @palaciodesal for arranging this special evening under the stars for us ✨ 🥂

When you first arrive to Tibet you expect to see monks everywhere in a day to day life. Unfortunately it is not like that nowadays as urban lifestyle is beginning to dominate the lifestyle of locals and they move to bigger cities.

It acts as a traditional seat of successive Panchen Lamas, who are Tibet’s second highest incarnation. It was there where we observed Buddhist debates. They can get very heated, and the debaters use expansive and emphatic hand gestures during the debates, often stamping their feet to make a point. #Followmeto Tibet with @natalyosmann ❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖❖
Когда впервые приезжаешь в Тибет, то ожидаешь увидеть монахов везде в повседневной жизни. К сожалению сейчас это не так, поскольку городской образ жизни начинает доминировать над традиционными у местных жителей и они переезжают в крупные города. Монастырь Ташилунпо в Шигадзе был первым местом, где мы почувствовали древние вибрации - он был основан в 1447г 1-м Далай Ламой. На протяжении всей истории он действует, как традиционное место пребывания Панчен-Лам, которые являются вторыми по рангу ламы после Далай-ламы. Кстати именно там мы наблюдали буддистские дебаты, участники которых используют обширные жесты рукой и хлопок как временной промежуток, за который твой оппонент должен ответить на поставленный тобой вопрос.
