“The family of Satnam Singh Bhamara — the first Indian-born player ever to be drafted by a team in the @nba — posed for a portrait at home in Ballo Ke, #India. The 19-year-old #basketball player is two inches taller than his father, a farmer who is a familiar presence in #BalloKe, and something of a local curiosity. When news of the draft was announced in the village where the unusually tall, soft-spoken boy grew up to closely resemble his unusually tall, soft-spoken father, there was a celebration — not of an individual achievement, but of a collective one. @ktakahashi9 photographed Satnam’s family: his sister, Sarabjot Kaur, left; his parents, Sukhwinder Kaur and Balbir Singh Bamrah; and his brother, Beant Singh.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“A labor shortage in the Thai #fishing industry is primarily filled by using migrants, mostly from Cambodia and Myanmar. Men who have fled servitude on fishing boats recount beatings and worse as nets are cast for the catch that will become pet food and livestock feed. For a story about the violent, unregulated world of fishing boats in international waters, @adamjdean and the @nytimes reporter Ian Urbina spent a couple of days aboard a Thai fishing boat with a Cambodian crew. Living quarters were cramped, and men slept for short periods between hours of work. “There’s really noisy engine vibrations,” said the photographer @adamjdean, “and at nighttime there are rats and cockroaches going around, which doesn’t seem to bother them, but it’s pretty unpleasant.” We will share more photos from this story in the coming days.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Benjamin Rush (who signed the Declaration of Independence) founded our home, the College of Physicians, in 1787. He always wanted a medicinal plant garden so doctors could replenish their medicine chests. Well, we got one, but not until 150 years later! Now the garden is a living "exhibit” with dozens of species. #medicinal #plant #garden #botanic #medicine #medical #medicinalplants #medicinalherbs #herbal #physician #museum #philadelphia #phillygram #instagarden" By muttermuseum on Instagram.

““To be gay in the South right now is to be an exotic animal and it’s also a sin.” Raymie Wolfe, right, with Matthew Griffin in White Pine, #Tennessee. As a kid, Raymie didn’t have the words to describe himself. Gayness, he said, was something that wasn’t talked about. But earlier this summer, after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage, he and Matthew were married. “Matty was in the kitchen and he said ‘I want to get married today,’” Raymie recalled. “And I was like ‘Yes, yes, I want this historic day, I want this victory to be our wedding anniversary.’” If you live in the South, how, if at all, has the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of #samesexmarriage affected you, your family or your community?

“"Beginning some time this afternoon, travelers passing through Grand Central Terminal will be able to set their watches and make their trains with the help of the old familiar golden clock,” @nytimes reported on the front page in March 1954. A few weeks earlier, the four-faced timekeeper had been sent away for repairs in Brooklyn for the first time in 41 years. Upkeep, @nytimes had reported, would include having “its four faces cleaned, its hands manicured and its internal works rejuvenated.” The clock had been acting so strangely that @grandcentralnyc staff had been known to throw a brown paper bag over it “when it became eccentric.” This photo, by staff photographer Neal Boenzi, came from the @nytimes archives, known as the “morgue.” #tbt #grandcentral" By nytimes on Instagram.

“A #cyclist on a walkway on the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, the only direct route by foot between the #Bronx and Randalls Island. The Bronx is closer to the island than any other borough — in some places, less than 50 feet across a narrow waterway known as the Bronx Kill. But many people find it so difficult to reach the island’s playing fields, bike trails and nature areas that they just don’t go. Now after years of delays, the city plans to open a new pedestrian and bike route from the Bronx to #RandallsIsland later this summer. The $6 million project will link the #PortMorris neighborhood in the Bronx to the island. Photo by @markkauzlarich.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Jiagui Su, 33, climbed the ladder to his loft bedroom in #Zhaoqing, China. He was diagnosed with #schizophrenia while working in Guangzhou. The photographer @yuyang_liu_ was drawn to Jiagui Su’s story because the severely mentally ill and their families are often overlooked in China, if not completely ignored. “This is a group of people who are invisible in normal society,” @yuyang_liu_ told the #lensblog. “We can’t see them in schools or workplaces, and we don’t see their families.” In the next phase of the project, which has included a number of families in Guangdong Province, @yuyang_liu_ will photograph in different regions, hoping to get the Chinese government to give more attention — and resources — to the issue of #mentalhealth.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“A tribute mural for Frosty Freeze by street artists @chief69bx and Statch. @104bx captured the mural at the @tatscru studio in the #Bronx.

On August 8, @nytimes is taking a walk with David Gonzalez (@104bx), co-editor of the #lensblog and an avid chronicler of #streetart. He will guide a small group through Hunts Point, a neighborhood he knows well — and one home to walls that have become canvases for a number of respected muralists. We’re inviting a small group of @Instagram photographers to join us. If you live in the New York area and want to attend, take a photo of street art and tag it #NYTBronxWalk. Post your photo soon: Space is limited! You’ll hear more from us if you’ve been selected.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Swirls formed around home plate as the #baseball field at @haverfordedu was groomed last week. @haverfordedu, in the Philadelphia suburbs, has produced an inordinate number of @mlb executives, talent evaluators and agents. In fact, as many as 20 percent of @haverfordedu’s economics majors — many of them #baseball players — choose baseball or sports as the subject of their senior thesis. But the school’s 200-acre campus, which includes an arboretum and duck pond, doesn’t scream “athletic powerhouse.” @nytimessports explores how a little, studious school became such a pipeline to a career in baseball, an industry with a limited number of job openings.

“A man walked in Shah Porir Dwip, #Bangladesh. From fisherman shopkeepers to police officers, the people of this island near the border with Myanmar were all drawn in to a multimillion-dollar people smuggling business — some as participants and others as concerned observers. At first, smuggling focused mainly on fortune-seeking migrants and offered locals a lucrative alternative to traditional livelihoods. But it has expanded into a predatory operation of considerable scale. The photographer @sergeyponomarev traveled to the area on #nytassignment.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“An inmate with his dog at Coffee Correctional Facility, which houses men serving sentences of up to 25 years. The #prison, in #Nicholls, Georgia, participates in a training program for #dogs that helps teach them to use their powerful sense of smell to keep people safe. Each puppy is assigned to an inmate, who acts as its main handler and trainer. They live together in a dedicated dorm, where the dogs’ crates nestle against their trainers’ bunks. After a year, many dogs will be placed with a government agency or a private security firm to sniff out bombs, narcotics or other threats. Meanwhile, for the inmates, the work tends to speed up the rehabilitation process. Bryan Meltz photographed the training program at Coffee on #nytassignment.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Surf pictures are usually about motion. But @jstersurf, who has spent the last nine years making large-format #tintype photos of #surfers on beaches all over the world, is out to capture stillness. Shooting with a big, old-fashioned camera draws people in, she said, and encourages them to participate. “There’s a little bit of spectacle and performance involved in what I’m doing because I’m working in public. I’m kind of under observation at all times,” @jstersurf said. “It’s this curious combination of artistry, technique, puppet show and performance, all on the beach.” Which, it turns out, is a lot like surfing itself. Follow @jstersurf and visit her website to see more photos of surfers, like Mark and Emily, pictured here. #lensblog” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Fans of Pedro Martinez waved flags of the #DominicanRepublic and chanted “Pe-dro! Pe-dro!” with little prompting on Sunday at the @baseballhall induction ceremony in #Cooperstown, New York. Pedro is the second Dominican #baseball player to enter the Hall of Fame, 32 years after Juan Marichal became the first. @nathaniel_brooks_photo captured Nathaly Garcia, from the Bronx, rallying with fellow supporters. “Don’t look at me as numbers, as baseball, as achievements,” Pedro said when he spoke to the crowd. “I’d like you to see me as a sign of hope for a third world country, for Latin America, someone you can look up to to say, ‘I’m proud of you.’” Follow @nathaniel_brooks_photo to see more photos.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“A restaurant worker added trash bags to a giant pile of garbage outside of a bar in #Beirut. “Lebanon’s trash crisis is steadily spiraling out of control,” writes @bdentonphoto, who took this photo in a nightlife district where trash has been baking in the summer sun for more than a week. “Massive piles like this one are growing so large that they’re starting to block traffic,” he writes. The mounting trash crisis is the most recent example of an issue for which the Lebanese government has failed to find a long-term solution. Many Lebanese see the spreading garbage crisis as a new, more pungent manifestation of the country’s often impotent political system. #regram from @bdentonphoto.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Welcoming President @barackobama in Addis Ababa, #Ethiopia, where he and Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn took part in a news conference earlier today. As #Obama began his trip, which human rights groups say legitimizes an oppressive government, he urged Ethiopia’s leaders to curb crackdowns on press freedom and political openness. "When all voices are being heard, when people know they are being included in the political process, that makes a country more successful,” he said. This is the first time a sitting U.S. president has visited Ethiopia. @nytmills has been photographing the president’s trip, which started with a stop in Kenya.

“Men played #football on the beach in Manta, a port city in #Ecuador. After Ecuador was shut out from borrowing in traditional markets, the country turned to #China to fill the void. It is increasingly the trading partner of choice for many countries, taking the mantle from Western nations. China’s foreign direct investment — the money it spends overseas annually on land, factories and other business operations — is second only to the United States’, having passed Japan last year. This #nytweekender, we have been sharing photos by @ivankphoto for a series called #thechinafactor, which explores China’s global ambitions — as well as the loans and strings attached.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“A new road leads to an entrance to the Refineria del Pacifico, where workers are busy laying Chinese-made pipe. #Ecuador is depending on Chinese banks to finance $7 billion for the project, which is expected to cost roughly $10 billion. For the Ecuadorean government, the refinery is central to making the country self-sufficient in energy. For Beijing, it could mean more gasoline and other petroleum products shipped directly to #China, without depending on the American refineries that now process them. This #nytweekender, we’re sharing photos by @ivankphoto for #thechinafactor series.” By nytimes on Instagram.
