10 beautifully impressive photos of the NatGeo photo contest

Just a kid jumping over a small puddle or a version of Marilyn Monroe's "iconic flying skirt"... Everything looks beautifully in front of the photographer's lens.

The image above is a boy jumping over a small puddle at the beach in a fishing village near Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. The photographer of this picture is Yousuf Tushar. More than 5,000 families in the village make a living by fishing and processing dried fish. The children in the village do not have toys so dancing or running is almost their only fun activity. It's one of 10 photos selected by National Geographic editors for "People" category for the 2018 National Geographic Travel Photographer contest.
