In the spirit of bringing together educators around the world, we invited teachers of English to take part in a photo showcase called Learning Moments, by sharing photos of their everyday life. We then asked National Geographic Contributing Photographer, Rubén Salgado, to select a few Learning Moments to highlight from the showcase.
Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing the photos that Rubén Salgado has chosen to highlight on the In Focus blog. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn to see even more of our favorite Learning Moments sent in from the National Geographic Learning community.
Thank you to everyone who participated. It was inspiring to hear all the ways you use photography for learning in your classrooms and to see the fantastic photos you took!

This is what I would say in my class: think about hobbies and things you love. This is a photo I took of a friend. His name is Jesus and he loves riding his motorcycle. I love photography, sunsets and landscapes like the one you see here. What do you feel passionate about? Do you have any hobbies? Describe the things you love to do.
Rubén Salgado’s Comments:
The rays of the sun settling on the land as the light spills over the hills are beautiful here. Everything looks harmonious and peaceful, and the depth of the view where what looks like a volcano is just stunning. It looks like a motorcycle advertisement!
