National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest 2014

I would definitely  not want to be a judge in this year’s National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest – not with all of the fantastic work being submitted. We – at least I – tend to get caught up in the day to day minutiae of living and can easily forget what the incredible beauty and diversity of our little place among the Cosmos looks like. From breathtaking vistas of exotic lands to intimate portraits of the people that inhabit them, photography connects us like no other medium – it inspires awe and wonder, while at the same time allowing us to treasure both the people and the places we call home. The deadline for submissions is Monday, June 30, at 12 p.m. EDT, so you’ve still got some time to get your photos in.
