National Geographic Photos

I am a huge fan of National Geographic and Traveler magazine. Each edition features amazing photographs and compelling articles. The articles I read in Traveler are as close as I'll get to a lot of places in this world.

Make sure to visit their Photography section. Great inspiration and desktop wallpapers.

The following is a photograph from National Geographic Paris Catacombs. Under Paris lies a secret artistic culture and huge cemetery of lost remains.

Behind the neat stacks of skulls, tibias, and femurs in the Paris catacombs lies a chaos of bones. In the 18th and 19th centuries the city dug up millions of skeletons from over-flowing cemeteries and poured them at night into old quarries.
