Summer in the United States is in full swing and incredible local photos like Matt Klowkowski’s incredible capture from a hot air balloon flight in San Diego have been dominating my news feed. All too often, I am focused so much on international travel, sometimes I neglect the incredible beauty and experiences right here in my own backyard.

As much as I love photographing travel landscapes, my main inspiration comes from the people I meet along the journey, especially the children I teach photography too and the NGOs that I work with to help raise awareness to their causes. I wrote about it yesterday. I hope you will give it a read and it helps inspire you to try something a little different next time you travel—giving back to the local communities and people.

Keep those photos coming fellow adventures! They inspire me to get out there and see more of the world, and I hope every Friday, our selections do the same for you.

If you submit a photo that you think would make a great addition to either of our Top 10s, be sure to add the tag #ResourceTravel500px!
