A picture might be worth a thousand words but National Geographic photographs leaves us speechless. Known for their captivating daily pictures, they also offer an opportunity to dive into the archives of previously unpublished or forgotten images.

The project called Found was established in 2013 to honor NatGeo's 125th anniversary. The project's team says that their mission is to bring the pictures back to life by sharing them to new audiences. And even some of the dates or locations are missing, the images capture perfect moments making them timeless.

The photographs are dug up by Guardian of the Collection William Bonner, who still finds them highly inspiring even after years spent in the archives. Together with editor Janna Dotschkal's love for aesthetics, they make the vintage material shine as new.

My husband was a Grenadier Guard in Ottawa, Canada and remained still for twenty minutes after being accidentally stabbed in the leg by the soldier next to him. Apparently, there are strict protocols about what they are allowed to do while in line.
