- Your Shot Photos of the Week
Your best photos of the week, May 17, 2019
Each week, our editors choose stunning photos submitted by members of Your Shot, National Geographic's photo community.
I have a confession: I’m neither a photographer nor a photo editor. (For proof, check the @susanbgoldberg Instagram account.) In my five-and-a-half years as editor of National Geographic, I’ve looked at amazing photography every day. But I came up the “word side” of journalism as a reporter and editor, and I never quite forget that I’m a bit of an interloper in the purely visual storytelling world.
Given that checkered history, I’m delighted to serve as the first guest editor of the Photos of the Week, in honor of significant milestone for the Your Shot community: You’ve now submitted 10 million photos! That’s a tremendous contribution to our National Geographic storytelling across platforms.
