Tiahne says she misses spending time with her friends, many of whom have cancelled birthday celebrations. "I was hoping to travel and work in the UK next year but now I feel really anxious about the future—being able to get work." Public gatherings are now limited to two people after the Australian Government introduced tougher restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. ( Lisa Maree Williams / Getty)

Photos: The Volunteers (28 photos)

At a time when so many folks are in so many kinds of need, volunteers are stepping up around the world to give—to donate their time, skills, materials, and much more. To meet shortages, people are making masks and other personal protective equipment at home. To feed those in need, people are working at food banks and charities. People are shopping for and making deliveries to the more vulnerable, and producing and distributing sanitizers to prevent the spread of the virus. People are donating facilities, money, food, and even their own blood to help their neighbors make it through tough times. Below, a collection of images capturing some of the generosity that this pandemic has inspired.

Wild Goats Roam Through an Empty Welsh Town (14 photos)

Lockdown measures taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus have left the streets of cities and towns vacant for weeks now. In the seaside town of Llandudno, Wales, a small herd of wild Kashmiri goats that normally roam nearby rocky hillsides has taken advantage of the moment, and ventured into the town to feed on hedges and rest in grassy areas. The herd has previously appeared in the town during bad weather events, but now it seems to be drawn by the unusual quiet. The BBC quoted a town councillor, who said, “They are curious, goats are, and I think they are wondering what’s going on like everybody else.”

A local councillor told the BBC that the herd was drawn this time by the lack of people and tourists due to quarantine measures related to the COVID-19 outbreak. ( Christopher Furlong / Getty)

A Moment for Drive-In Movie Theaters (18 photos)

With movie theaters around the world closed or empty because of the ongoing pandemic, drive-in theaters appear to be having a momentary comeback. People looking for a big-screen movie experience can drive up, show their tickets without opening a window, and enjoy the show as an isolated family unit. Some drive-in owners are opening early in the season, hoping to provide people with something entertaining to do outside their homes—together with others, yet safely apart. Below, recent images of moviegoers in Germany, South Korea, and the U.S.

The Basin Drive In opened early this year, despite cold temperatures, because of the closure of indoor movie theaters due to the COVID-19 pandemic. ( George Frey / Getty)

North Dakota: Images of the Peace Garden State (33 photos)

North Dakota is home to about 760,000 people—the fourth-smallest population of any state in the U.S. It is primarily farmland, with about 90 percent of its area used for agriculture. North Dakota is also home to a recent oil boom, based on new drilling technologies like fracking, which has changed both the landscape and the population. Here are a few glimpses of the terrain of North Dakota and some of the animals and people calling it home.

The Visual Landscape of a World Shaped by Pandemic (32 photos)

The drastic impacts of the coronavirus outbreak have changed nearly every aspect of daily life, leaving a visual impact on the world around us.

Music and Encouragement From Balconies Around the World (27 photos)

From its beginnings in January, the coronavirus outbreak has driven millions of people to shelter at home for long days of anxiousness and boredom. In country after country, people have responded by taking to their balconies, windows, and rooftops to sing to one another, to applaud and show gratitude to their health-care workers, to play music, and to lift one another’s spirits. Collected below are images of some of the musicians and grateful neighbors in Spain, Iraq, the U.S., France, Italy, Lebanon, India, Germany, and more, socializing from a safe distance.

We Need Puppies Right Now (20 photos)

When so much of the world is focused on stories that can create anxiety, it might be helpful to take a breather and enjoy a few photos of adorable pups on National Puppy Day. The date, March 23, was first set aside in 2006 by the author Colleen Paige, before other groups and organizations followed suit. The idea is to call attention to puppies in need of adoption and the abuses found in puppy mills, but also to celebrate these furry little companions. In the spirit of the day, I am once more obligated to share some images of pups from around the world.

Photos: The Quiet Emptiness of a World Under Coronavirus (28 photos)

Closures, travel restrictions, and self-isolation measures due to the new coronavirus have cleared public squares, roads, and travel destinations across the globe. Places built to accommodate thousands have become virtual ghost towns, as tourists and locals remain at home. Photographers in France, India, the U.S., Italy, China, Australia, and more have been capturing the eerie stillness of these public spaces, recently emptied of the crowds they were built for.

Photos: Life in the Coronavirus Era (36 photos)

In an all-out effort to slow the spread of the new coronavirus, health and government officials worldwide have mandated travel restrictions, closed schools and businesses, and set limits on public gatherings. People have also been urged to practice social distancing in public spaces, and to isolate themselves at home as much as possible. This rapid and widespread shift in rules and behavior has left much of the world looking very different than it did a few months ago, with emptied streets, schools, workplaces, and restaurants, and almost everyone staying home. Gathered below, some recent scenes from this pandemic, and of people coping with the many problems it is causing.

Large-Scale Disinfection Efforts Against Coronavirus (21 photos)

As health workers and governments around the world work to slow the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, large-scale disinfection efforts are becoming commonplace. Using methods ranging from simple hand-wiping to mobile spray cannons, workers and volunteers are attempting to halt the transfer of the virus by touch. While there are questions about the efficacy of some of the broader spraying tactics, disinfecting frequently-touched surfaces can help stop the spread of the virus. Collected here, images of recent efforts in Iran, China, Italy, South Korea, and more.

When Everyone Stays Home: Empty Public Spaces During Coronavirus (25 photos)

In cities and regions hard-hit by the coronavirus crisis, quarantine measures and self-isolation efforts have left many public spaces deserted. Classrooms, plazas, malls, sports venues, cafes, houses of worship, and tourist destinations appear eerily empty as people stay home, cancel plans, and await further news.

Finalists From Smithsonian Magazine’s 2019 Photo Contest (15 photos)

The editors of Smithsonian magazine have just announced the 60 finalists in their 17th annual photo contest, selected from 36,000 entries sent in from 145 countries and territories. They have once more allowed me to share here a selection of images from the competition’s six categories: Natural World, American Experience, Travel, People, Altered Images, and Mobile. Captions were written by the photographers. Be sure to visit the contest page at to see all the finalists and vote for your favorites.

Adélie Penguin on an Iceberg. Finalist, Natural World. Ice-dependent animals are in perilous danger of losing their habitats. This photo shows an Adélie penguin standing on an iceberg off Devil Island, Antarctica. I like how the half-lit, sea-eroded iceberg gives the scene a sense of dichotomy. Perhaps the penguin's indecision on which way to go, or perhaps ours. (© Copyright Conor Ryan. All rights reserved.)
