Space in Water | Photograph by Richard Wylie (@richardwylie1017)
.
“I can’t really remember a time when I didn’t want to be a marine biologist. Some of my earliest dreams were about breathing underwater,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Richard Wylie. “I have now been a marine biologist for around 25 years and with over 4,000 dives, I have probably spent between 6-8 months underwater all up. If there is any place on this world (other than with my wife and daughter) that I feel truly welcome at any time of day or night, it is in the water. It is my second home! And underwater photography is my form of zen meditation.”
—
“I love it Richard, this is fantastic. It feels like a daydream, I love how my imagination has fun with your photo. And I really love your comment to #YourShotPhotographer David Hessell: ‘Thanks very much David, and yes, that is a classic Bourne image! I hadn’t even thought of it but thank you for reminding me — both the image itself at the beginning of the movie and to re-watch the series, they’re one of my all-time favourite movies. Thanks again!’” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

Adventures in the City Story #sponsored by @TheNorthFace

When you first think of exploration, you might think of going to an exotic location, mountain climbing, hikes through a dense forest, or underwater exploration. But exploring doesn’t have to be quite so extreme, and our community of photographers proved that statement with their submissions to the Adventures in the City assignment. National Geographic Photographer Renan Ozturk (@renan_ozturk) guest curated this assignment and empowered our community members to go in search of explorations that are meaningful to them. The following images were some of Renan's favorites submissions and were featured in the final story.

I was lucky enough to take this shot as they took a very brief break from playtime to enjoy a moment of peace. Don’t worry, momma was very close by watching their every move.”
