This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both.

— Frederick Douglass

Top Shot: Fury of the Sea

Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos selected by the Your Shot editors. The photo our community has voted as their favorite is showcased on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account. Click here to vote for tomorrow’s Top Shot.

Waves hit the Mouro Lighthouse in Cantabria, on the northern coast of Spain. The lighthouse is now automated as there is no lighthouse keeper that lives on the island. Your Shot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas writes, “I love your choice to make this epic photo in black and white. I can only focus on the raw power and movement of the Atlantic Ocean. Well done!” Photograph by Oscar Martinez

The warbler migration through Iowa is winding down yet this gayly-colored Chestnut-sided Warbler (Setophaga pensylvanica) could be heard singing its springtime courtship song.

As a production designer, whenever I see anything from a Baz Luhrmann movie, I can’t help but think about the fact that over the top beauty like this is what you get when your director is married to the costume and production designer.

Catherine Martin is living my dream.

Not to be controversial but this website (and life in general) is much more enjoyable when you spend your energy on talking about the things you love rather than the things you hate and trying to drag everyone down with you, some of us are over here trying to be happy.

Spotted one out past the waves at Surf Beach, looking vaguely like a loon but with the snazzy black-and-white breeding plumage shown here.

montereybayaquarium:

Sooty shearwaters undertake a remarkable 40,000 mile migration every year, tracing a figure-eight path from breeding sites in the Southern Hemisphere to richer feeding sites in the North Pacific Ocean.

Hopefully they get frequent flyer miles!

They’ve been in the ocean off Santa Barbara County for a few months now, but I haven’t been out on a boat and they don’t usually come close enough to shore to be seen easily down in my part of the county. North county is another story, though; at the beach west of Lompoc this morning I saw hundreds of them. They were still out pretty far, but identifiable.

A few weeks ago someone reported four of them out at Ocean Beach County Park west of Lompoc. This morning I drove out to see if they were still there.

They were. 🙂

fuck-kirk:

yesterday I was at gamestop and a man in full Data cosplay walked up to the front counter and I did a double take so hard I nearly broke my neck. So, he walks up and the cashier just casually smiles and goes “How’s it going, Data? What can I do for you?”  and Data goes, “I am doing quite well. I was just wondering when you guys would have Destiny 2 in stock.” This mans……literally did not smile or emote at all. He went all in. The cashier was totally non fazed. I, however, was completely shitting my pants cos ya’ll DO NOT understand how good this dude’s cosplay was. It really looked like fuckin data teleported into the middle of game stop in rural ohio to ask about motherfucking destiny 2.

The only time he broke character was when I was stealthily trying to stare at him and thinking about asking for a pic when he was walking out.This dude. Looked at me, completely expressionless. and WINKED at me. Someone collect ya mans he wildin lmfao
