- Your Shot Photos of the Week
Your best photos of the week, October 12, 2018
Each week, our editors choose stunning photos submitted by members of Your Shot, National Geographic's photo community.
Yesterday, a National Geographic magazine photo editor, Kurt Mutchler said something during a presentation about an upcoming story that resonated with me. He said, “There is no substitute for time…powerful storytelling can slow people down.” I think this week’s series embodies that principle that if we, as storytellers, slow down and really soak in our surroundings, we can make our best pictures.
This week, I felt a sense of magic in the images I chose in the series. The bold patterns, textures, and use of light created a sense of whimsy and intrigue that let the viewer stop for one more second to take it in, like the first deep breath walking outside on a crisp autumn morning.
