View from my window: wood water tanks juxtaposed against the Empire State. Tanks provide gravity fed drinking and bathing water to buildings over 6 stories high. Though they may like like a relic from the past, wood tanks are actually preferred over steel for their insulating properties (cooler in summer, warmer in winter) as well as lower cost. There are some 15,000 working wood water towers in Manhattan alone. #manhattan #newyorkcity #empirestatebuilding #nyc @thephotosociety @natgeocreative @natgeo

Sunset wedding - In China, the wedding photographs are shot in a studio well before the wedding ceremony where they will be displayed as part the celebration. #weddingdress #wedding #china @thephotosociety @natgeocreative @natgeo

The wedded rocks of Ise represent the union between the deities who created Japan according to Shinto mythology. They stand stoically side by side as they have for centuries joined by sacred ropes woven from braided rice straw. Couples come here to pray in hopes for a marriage as strong and as lasting. #mie #japan #ise #weddedrocks #shinto @thephotosociety @natgeo @natgeocreative

It's wedding season. At Tokyo Disneyland, a beaming bride and bashful groom are blessed with kisses from Mickey and Minnie. #mickiemouse #disneyland #tokyodisneyland #tokyo #japan @thephotosociety @natgeo @natgeocreative

Coal fires the giant steel mills of Inner Mongolia - how ironic that China, the world’s biggest emitter of carbon dioxide, stands to gain international credit for standing by the Paris Agreement, to become a green energy powerhouse. #baotou #innermongolia #china @supchinanews @thephotosociety @natgeo @nature_org

From - Outtakes: Life on the Irrawaddy - click the link on @nature_brains for the full blog post. On the wide expanses of Myanmar’s Irrawaddy River, fishermen have learned to watch for Irrawaddy dolphins. When the mammals approach the boats, fishermen go to work, netting the fish the dolphins are also hunting. With each haul, the dolphins eat some of the catch. It can be slow going though: Photographer Michael Yamashita hunched behind this fisherman for hours. @nature_org #Myanmar #Irrawaddy #fishermen #fishing

7 days of sunshine in London last week brought everyone outdoors. Here school kids picnic and play on the grounds of the Geffrye Museum. Perfect weather for a perfect week. Such a contrast to the tragedy of the children in Manchester. #geffryemuseum #london #londonlife
