“Laurie Smolenski, 31, and Nico De Rosa, 35, walking east on the Williamsburg Bridge. On the night they met, in the summer of 2012, Nico got in an accident on his Vespa while approaching the bridge. Even in the minutes after he was hit, all he could think about was his destroyed cellphone — and how he was going to recover Laurie’s phone number. Now, three summers later, their relationship has endured ups and downs. But when Nico got in another accident recently — this time while riding a @citibike — his mind went to the same place. “The first thing I thought of was her,” he said. “It was a complete flashback to the day I met her.” Theirs is one story in a series of tales of #summerlove that @nytimes reporters will share this summer. @damonwinter photographed Laurie and Nico.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Niccolò Innocenti, exhausted after a game at the annual tournament of calcio storico, or historic football — a brutal, centuries-old competition held every year in #Florence. The game is a spectacle, to say the least. Two teams of 27 players are placed in a sand pit and told, essentially, to do whatever is necessary to get the ball into the other team’s end zone. It’s a strange mix of American football, rugby and street fighting. Florence has four historical quarters, and #calciostorico, which is believed to date to the 15th century, is played by one team from each neighborhood. “When I played for the first time,” Niccolò said, “the sensation I had was one of truly being a man.” Photo by Clara Vannucci for @nytimessports.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Visitors posed for pictures at the @uscapitol on Tuesday morning. @crowleygraph was passing by when he noticed the group of monks, pictured below, and rushed to take a photo. “There were no cops out or anything,” he said. “Nothing to break up the scene.” He quickly noticed the boy in star-spangled shorts and repositioned himself to take the second picture. @crowleygraph is a staff photographer in the Washington, D.C. bureau of the @nytimes.

“When #MSF teams returned to Denthoma 1 camp in South Sudan after a week’s absence, they were shocked to find the hospital, office and pharmacies looted and vandalised. Water tanks were riddled with bullet holes and people had been without safe water for three days. MSF restored the water purifying system supplying the camp with around 120 cubic metres of clean water every day.” By doctorswithoutborders on Instagram.

“After 14 years with the company, @mistyonpointe has been promoted by @abtofficial to become the first African-American woman principal dancer in the company’s 75-year history. @mistyonpointe, whose openness about race in #ballet helped make her one of the most famous ballerinas in the United States, is the subject of a documentary film that was screened this year at @tribeca. Last week at @metopera, @j_cervantes photographed @mistyonpointe as she danced as Odette and Odile in “Swan Lake.” After the show, the crowd cheered when she emerged from the theater. A woman called out: “Congratulations, Misty!” A man shouted: “Principal! Principal, Misty! Principal, dear!” #mistycopeland” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Roxanne Warneke and her 18-month-old daughter, Billie Grace, at their home in Marana, #Arizona. Roxanne’s husband, Billy, died two years ago today in the Yarnell Hill Fire, one of the nation’s deadliest wildfires. He was among 19 firefighters with the Granite Mountain Hotshots, an elite crew trained to fight wilderness fires, who died two days after the fire ignited. As part of a settlement announced Monday, 12 families who filed a wrongful-death suit will receive $50,000 each. Roxanne plans to help establish a foundation to help other fallen firefighters’ families and push for greater training. “Finally, it’s over,” said Roxanne, who was pregnant with Billie Grace when she lost her husband. “I wanted Billy’s death to mean something, for some good to come out of it, and now I can actually start to see results.” Photo by @nickcotephoto.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“New York City, NY | June 28, 2015

A fleeting moment of love at the Pride Parade.
While the NYC pride parade - and pretty much any summertime non-religious parade in the city - is a overly sexualized gathering of people, this year’s parade had an amazing atmosphere. NYers weren’t rude, there wasn’t pushing, there was celebrating. Parents brought their children, and people of all races and creeds came to watch history - the first parade since since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned all bans and made gay marriage a legal right across the United States.

Scott Parent and Tiger Ferguson pose together at the tail end of the NYC Pride Parade.
Their "Gay-nniversary,” 12 years ago they were illegally married in NY, but have since been married several times in various places and are now legally recognized by the state. “We get to switch the roles of Bride and Groom so we both get a chance!” said Ferguson. “Too many people in too many places don’t have the right to be with their loved ones, now that has changed!” On Friday June 26, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned all state bans on Gay marriage and made it a legal right across the United States.

“"My name is Ayoub, I am 18 years old and I come from Afghanistan. My whole family was killed when I was very young, so I grew up with my uncle. When I was eleven, he was killed too. I then fled to Iran, where I know some friends. I have walked thousands of kilometers to get here and I have used up three pairs of shoes. I only carry a sleeping bag, a few small belongings, something to drink, and something to eat. I must go to Europe, they must help us. In Afghanistan there is no security.
Every day people die there.” MSF is active in Greece to provide medical support to people who arrive there.“ By doctorswithoutborders on Instagram.
