johnstanmeyer Love ~ Hello everyone, I am pleased to be the curator of the National Geographic @natgeoyourshot assignment titled, I Love You.  From now until September 7, join millions of photographers around the world by submitting images that depict love. Not surface love -- we all fall in love too easily. Instead, fall into deepness. The ephemeral, unspoken meaning of love. Avoid the obvious...animals or people holding each other, walking hand in hand in a forest, pretty sunsets. Go further, into acts of giving kindness, humility, the unexpected. Even in darkness, in the lack of hope, there is still light. Still love. This is what I'm hoping those who participate delve furthest into. Now, more than ever, we need love. The link to submit images is on the National Geographic @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.

In these troubling times we need love, now, more than ever. Unconditional kindness, love, pure and giving. Like children, dogs do not know hate unless taught. We learn so much about love and kindness from the likes of Emma...

Emma is my son's dog, @richardstanmeyer. A 69 kg/130 lb  Dogue de Bordeaux or French Mastiff, she is a gentle giant of unmitigated love. Music on IG Stories is Emma's dad, Richard, on trumpet.

johnstanmeyer Leaping, a man performs a Mikvah (Mikveh), a Jewish bathing ritual to cleans impurities in the waters of an old rock quarry in Uman, Ukraine. The word mikvah, as used in the Hebrew Bible, literally means a collection – generally, a collection of water. From the Sacred Water story for National Geographic, It has been awhile since publishing, nonstop for weeks, leaping in for the need we all have in telling stories. Hoping everyone has been well, John

The first photograph of my trees project, taken while on the @natgeo story #VolcanoGods. This image has nothing to do with volcanoes. It was one frame while moving in a car through a forest of trees, spawning a 7 year project of trees from nearly 20 countries. Each so alive, in motion through the periphery.

johnstanmeyer He sang praises, arms in exaltation stretched upon the setting sun. A horse, the unexpected in the slow moving caravan with those of us who seek comfort by water. The vendor, a kind and shy one. She sold worthless necklaces dangling off a graceful wrist, priceless to the memories they one day may bring. Such was the theater of life that evening along Cox's Bazar, an unbroken 120 kilometer stretch of sand in Bangladesh, lapped gently by the Bay of Bengal.

johnstanmeyer Faith, as in life, comes in all shapes and sizes. This young fellow took scale seriously, totting a massive candle while praying in the sacred grotto of Lourdes in Lourdes, France. Thousands come each day to pray and collect the water which pours from the grotto where it is believed that in 1858 the Virgin Mary appeared to Marie-Bernarde (also known as Bernadette) while praying in this grotto.

johnstanmeyer At times I become equally entranced. That night, lost within, entangled with Baryo as he faded behind a wafting curtain of incense, he traveled while chanting incantations into the deepest trance I'd witnessed. A shaman, Baryo communicates with the spirit that is believed to reside in Mount Bromo, a most mystical, beautifully spiritual volcano in all of Indonesia. Took some time for me to return, never moving the camera, so pulled from his murmur and sway. Upon his return into this world, Baryo asked whether I was alright. In kind reply, telling him I was, we touched hands, thanking each other through smiling eyes of silence.

johnstanmeyer In reverential prayer, offerings of food, love, remembrance. A few years have past when I was welcomed by these kind women in Bam, Iran, a moment of solemnity at the grave of relatives who died years earlier in the 2003 earthquake. After praying in silence under a pewter sky, they offered me tea, a warm smile, appreciation in sharing to others this simple act of unforgotten love.
