Ringing in 2018 Around the World

Last night, as the stroke of midnight rolled across the world’s time zones, people gathered in private and took to the streets to celebrate the arrival of the New Year, 2018. Fireworks erupted from Yogyakarta to Nairobi, and revelers gathered in Sydney, Dubai, Rio de Janeiro, New York, and thousands of other places, raising a glass, trying to keep warm, making resolutions, and wishing each other a “Happy New Year!”

Happy New Year 2018!

Xmas at Rockefeller Center 1955

With only a few days left until Christmas, I thought it might be fun to take a look at celebrations and preparations from years past. Gathered here is a collection of images of all things Christmas: decorated trees, shoppers, Santas, gifts, family gatherings, carolers, parades— even a bear and a flying saucer, from the early 1900s through the 1990s.

Autumn Sunset near Strasbourg

One last look at my favorite season of the year, with more autumnal images from across the Northern Hemisphere. Harvests, festivals, migrations, winter preparations, and, of course, the colorful leaves. Today’s collection features photographs from Switzerland, Belarus, Nepal, Russia, France, England, Kazakhstan, China, and across the United States.

Hallstatt Village – Austria

The image was taken from Hallstat Village in Austria right after sunrise. I had to walk some distance to reach this village view point. It was worth every step that I took as the scene turned out to be magical with the fog movement. Luckily the fog did not cover up the mountains. Photo by Shanof K. (United Arab Emirates).

NatGeo Daily Dozen

Aug. 02, 2017

Shyama Prasad Mishra (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland). The Classic Belvedere Sunrise is quite theatrical, where different elements of nature come together in a choreographed routine to create an artistic masterpiece. With the chiming bell tower, the blanket of darkness is slowly lifted and the audience are greeted with early morning mist adding drama to this open air arena. The blowing wind adds a touch of freshness to the scene while meticulously shaping the low lying fog, playing peek-a-boo with everyone eager to soak in the lovely view.

A World Without People

For a number of reasons, natural and human, people have evacuated or otherwise abandoned many places around the world—large and small, old and new. Gathering images of deserted areas into a single photo essay, one can get a sense of what the world might look like if humans were to suddenly vanish from the planet. Collected here are recent scenes from abandoned construction projects, industrial disaster zones, blighted urban neighborhoods, towns where residents left to escape violence or natural disasters, derelict Olympic venues, ghost towns, and more.
