Photo by @FransLanting In this image I juxtaposed ancient patterns of nature with todays manmade constructs to make a point. When we elevate nature to the status of a National Park or a National Monument it secures protectionbut it also triggers all kinds of infrastructure required to enable people to visit. Without the political will to back up the imperative of protection and the resources needed to make these places endure for nature and for ourselves, we are not living up to this promise. Whether the current U.S. government administration in Washington, D.C. has the intention to do either will become clear this year. Meanwhile, I look forward to Aaron Hueys images on assignment for @natgeo to report from one of the flash points of the current debate about Bears Ears National Monument. What do you think is the right thing to do? Become part of the conversation and check some of the links below. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of these special places. @natgeotravel @thephotosociety @argonautphoto #MonumentsForAll #beauty #nature #naturelovers #wilderness #America #Conservation

When the river runs dry, you dig. Down into the sand through layers black with soot, through the soft bands of soil left by passing floods. As the country grows drier, dig deeper. Objects will appear along the waybroken tools, plastic bags, lumps of ancient shit. Bones, too, of animals you recognize and others you have never seen, creatures from worlds long gone. Now and then human bones will appear, perhaps even a skull darkly stained during a long residence. Ancestor, neighbor, great-grandmotherdont worry, doesnt matter. This land is so old, and time retires all ghosts. Keep digging. With each dry month the water recedes a little farther and soon the hole will be deeper than you are tall. But thats all right, its cool at the bottom of the well and each one of you takes a turn with the work. You scoop up sand with long callused fingers and pass it up, dribbling, into the light. In a land without mirrors every woman finds herself in the dream-well, and each follows herself down into the earth. Water. It runs through all of our work. In every story, every photo photograph, water is presentor by its absence still leaves a mark. This series is an exploration of ideas and places that are connected by water, and the ways our lives, memories and work have been shaped by it. Join us on the journey @randyolson & @neilshea13. #africa #ethiopia #omoriver #omovalley #kara #suri #surma #mursi #nyangatom #tribes #girls #womenandwater #rivers #well #dig #wetseason #watershedstories #adryseason @thephotosociety
