Fragility of Ecosystem | Photograph by Julia Wimmerin (@juliawimmerlin) . “Everything we see in this photo from Anilao, Philippines is very fragile and can soon disappear. Dying corals, fish full of plastic coming all the way from plankton and going all the way up the food chain,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Julia Wimmerlin. “Polluted water and air... The more we hear it and say it, the more likely it is that this will change. And generations later, people can still take photos of this incredible beauty.” This photo was selected for the “Celebrating the Planet” story.

You start to wonder when will we ever wake up and realize the damage that is being done. I love how the coral is set in the bottom foreground of this image as the fish move above in a pattern. Excellent work with this angle as Im sure this was a tough underwater image to capture.” — @natgeoyourshot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams)

Plastic Problem Without Border | Photograph by Shan W. (@_kikiharry_) . “Planet or plastic? This photo shows my wife walking to the sea. There was plenty of plastic at the feet of my wife, and there was a family to play in the ocean,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Shan W. “Plastics from China and Korea was also flowing there a lot. Plastic problems have no borders. Plastics in my country, and other countries’ plastics that flowed to the coast are garbage throughout the Earth too. We straddle a lot of plastic garbage and arrive at the sea. How long will the earthlings leave the plastic problem?” This photo was selected for the “Celebrating the Planet” story.

Memoirs of a Geisha | Photograph by Federico Bonifazi (@federico.bonifazi.photo) . #YourShotPhotographer Federico Bonifazi paired his portrait of Geisha Chiyoro from Matsuyama with this quote from the 2005 film Memoirs of a Geisha: “A story like mine should never be told. For my world is as forbidden as it is fragile; without its mysteries it cannot survive.” This photo was selected for the “For Your Shot Instagram” story. Go to the link in our profile to submit to our current assignments (“For National Geographic’s Photo of the Day” and “Climate Action in Your Community”) and for your chance to be featured on @natgeoyourshot. — “I agree with #YourShotPhotographer Stephanie Thomson who commented, This is a beautiful portrait Federico. I love how the silky, blue robe compliments the bright, tan colors of the space. The light coming in through the window seems to act as a natural diffuser, creating a softness to the tones, which also emphasizes the softness of the womans face and her overall body langue as she sits on the ground. Beautiful work! — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee
