I used to subscribe to National Geographic when I was in college, purely for the pictures. The photography is astounding. Take, for example, yesterday’s photo of the day.
Aside from the photo of the day, there’s also a photography contest in the works right now. Everyone is able to vote. Though I don’t know that the most votes from the masses translates into winning the contest, I do know that it’s loads of fun (and a way to waste quite a bit of time, too). In my opinion, the photos aren’t worth looking at without reading the captions, so make sure you take a moment to scroll down!
