Louis, 2018

Size mattered greatly in the formative years of Louis, a Pug formerly known as Meatball, formerly known as a doggie in the window of a New York City pet shop where he was seen daily until he wasn’t.

Meatball had grown too big for the window and was reassigned to, shall we say, a less than prominent position in the store when his owner-to-be, came-to-be looking for him.

And while Meatball may have been too large for the window, the Pug now known as Louis was just small enough to be smuggled in and out past the doorman of a no-dogs-allowed building.

The things we do for love.

Size matters less these days to this 12 year-old, although his five front teeth are locked in a constant battle for space with his tongue. A world traveler, he has exquisite taste in food, music, women and cats. Between his frequent naps, Louis is known to regale visitors with colorful stories about his time living in the city that never sleeps.

is part of an ongoing personal project celebrating the beauty and character of these amazing creatures we share our homes and families and lives with.

Even though it is quite dry, from time to time there is precipitation, and as the water falls and runs downhill it creates these incredible channels and alluvial fans.

Working Up the Courage | Photograph by Lauren Sanderson (@lauren___sanderson)
“Learning to swim is a delicate balance of holding on and letting go,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Lauren Sanderson. “Of wanting to, but not being quite sure, of working up the courage to believe that you can do it, while making sure that Mom is still watching.”

“The light, the fierce connection with us in her eyes, the layers of the pool and your framing all make for one intense moment we’re sharing with this new young swimmer. I love that your caption brings a little poetry to the courage it takes to learn how to swim, and how learning to swim isn’t just as simple as the physical motions. Beautifully done, Lauren!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)


#FotoDelDía | El sol sale en la Avenida de los Baobabs en Morondava, Madagascar, donde más de 200 de los majestuosos árboles crecen a lo largo de una milla y media de carretera. En las cabañas residen artesanos locales que fabrican recuerdos de madera para vender a los turistas que visitan este popular destino.

#followmeto the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt with @natalyosmann. Still no one has been able to properly explain what the true purpose of this ancient structure was, or how was it built. Did you know that this pyramid has eight sides? The centres of the four sides are slightly indented. This phenomenon is only detectable at dawn and sunset on the spring and autumn equinoxes. It is also believed that the three Pyramids of the Giza Plateau mimic the constellation of Orion, or at least used to. ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
What other mysteries about the pyramids do you know?
#Следуйзамной к комплексу пирамид в Гизе.
До сих пор никто не может правильно объяснить, какова истинная цель этой древней структуры, или как она была построена. Знаете ли вы, что эта пирамида имеет восемь сторон? Центры четырех сторон слегка отклонены. Это явление обнаруживается только на рассвете и на закате весеннего и осеннего равноденствий. Считается также, что три пирамиды Плато Гизы имитируют созвездие Ориона. ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
Какие тайны пирамид знаете вы?
