Your Best Photo Stories

Pictory is a showcase for people around the world to document their lives and cultures. Anyone can submit one large, captioned image to each of Pictory’s editorial themes. The recent theme was Infrastructure, where Japan’s near-simultaneous earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis has provided a graphic reminder about the centrality of infrastructure in our lives. Another theme was Platonic Love Stories, about the folks who laugh at the same dumb jokes you do, have been there for you through thick and thin, and are still friends with you despite it all. Pictory of the Day photo blog. The Pictory Feature Archive. Here are the presently open themes. posted by netbros (6 comments total) 21 users marked this as a favorite

The all-you-can-eat ribs walrus/friend (in Platonic Love Stories) is quite excellent
and has a nice caption too!

Some days you just need something to remind you that there are other, beautiful, compelling things in the world. This was one of those days, and finding the sublime is the best possible reminder that there are many more good things out there.

Well said, Cold Lurkey - and that pic in California on the train tracks is just awe inspiring. This entire site is - thanks for posting it. It's amazing how much inspiring photography feels like it's capturing a moment of pure existence. I will forever be in awe of that skill and craft.
